Video Snow Report: A Happy Snowboarder

Jan 23, 2011 No Comments by

The recent snow falls in Bansko provided improved ski conditions. Richard shows the weather, and describes his assessment of the conditions day. And it’s all good for him! With many put off coming to Bansko by the lack of snow, there were few lift lines to speak of and the sunny spells made for a fine day. More fresh snow overnight and tomorrow.

Weather Forecast

I prefer taking a look at the UK’s Met Office weather charts,, when forecasting weather for the next five days. And today I thought I would share with you what I see for Thursday:

UK Met Office Weather Chart:Thursday 27th January 2011

If you are able to locate Bulgaria in the map above, you will see a number of weather fronts in a low pressure weather system crossing the region. This will bring precipitation, and therefore snow in Bansko on Thursday.

Temperatures will be cold this coming week. This is good news, as the piste preparation for the Tomba Men’s World Cup course for 26th and 27th February can continue. I think therefore, it is highly likely that the event will go ahead as planned.

Restaurants: Have You Found Your Favourite For 2011?

My revised Top 10 restaurants will be out soon. But in there will my recent favourites: ByTheWay (Lavina complex; classic Italian, excellent service: upscale vibe), The Kempinsky (especially the Sushi and Tempanyaki restaurant), St George’s Palace (Italian and international dishes, stylish setting), Avalon Hotel (no smoking — yes!), Axemans (burgers and good service) and the Victoria (value Italian dining, opposite the Kempinsky).

A full list will be sent out in a newsletter to subscribers soon. But what are your favourites in Bansko and the surrounding area? More reports please from the Pirin golf club restaurant would be welcome — and any others that you have enjoyed so far this ski season.
