The Big Snow Forecast For The New Year

Bansko ski

A very Happy Christmas to you all. I hope you have a great day — but I know what you really want for Christmas is SNOW…

and lots of it.

Here was how the snow looks in latest video:

But before I ask you to look at my Bansko snow forecast, I do understand and know from years of skiing that the excitement of a Bansko ski trip is often mixed with worry about snow.

However, whatever the snow is like when you come to Bansko, I very rarely have people saying they did not have a great time.

On reason for this, especially this year, is the great selection of restaurants in Bansko. Combine this with nightlife, loads of live music at Sing Sing, Euphoria, Penguins, Queen’s Pub, Ti Amo, Harry’s Bar (this is my favourite apres ski bar place located by the Astera hotel for this season).

A full run down on venues is coming soon — but most can already be found in Bansko App. Download it today. It’s free.


The questions you ask me for New Year

Will there be enough snow? Where can I book a cheap lift pass? How many centimetres of the white suff will there be in Bansko? Will all the lifts be open? Which runs will I enjoy? Where shall I eat? Where shall I party? Can I book my ski hire now? Am I too late to book my lift passes?

and …. How do I get my free lens cloth?

ANSWER to lens cloth question: Book Bansko Blog ski services — excuse my shameless plug — but I offer great value combined with attentive service and insider knowledge is so many  and many more.

I am on a quest to answer as many of these as I can. But time is short and I’m focussing on the one you are asking me the most often…


Will there be snow for New Year?

I thought there would be more snow Friday 26th and Saturday 27th. But no, not really!

But things are looking good.

The 29th and 30th December will see a LARGE snowfall. YES YES and YES!

Temperature will fall to very cold and New Year’s day will see many more pistes open and fine sunny skies with new and fresh powdery snow.


Snow canon

By the 2nd January the low temperatures will continue and the snow road will be open by then. It’s all looking good — time to celebrate.

And to help you celebrate my friend Dimitar (Mitko) Nikolov, wine expert, has picked six wines for festive drinking.
