Storms Strike, Powder Prevails for Horizon Festival

Phil Davies and the lads "blue bird" day

The amazing Bansko snow and weather story continues for yet another week. With the recent snow falls, and another one metre will tonight and Saturday, the next ten days of the weather forecast is offering some of the very finest conditions.

March is a very good time to be here — especially now the World Cup is over and the very annoying fact that this event closed runs for the peak February season.

Ok, I’m over  it. Lets enjoy the dump of the season.


Come to Bansko; ski, snowboard and party

Whilst I won’t be partying late, the horizon festival htttp:// will deliver the best in techno music with mountain locations for the afternoons and the many clubs in town.

But I enjoy the morning skiing the most. But stay tuned to for latest pictures of when I venture out on Sunday and Monday.
