Snow Forecast. It’s Snowing Now!

It's snowing higher up today (2nd March 2016)

The warm weather spell is, finally, coming to an end. It’s even snowing at 180 bar level as I type this, on Wednesday 2nd March. Some snow/rain during Thursday 3rd will turn to snow, I think a snow rather than rain in town on Friday 4th and Saturday 5th.

Oh my gosh, I can’t believe I’m finally predicting snow in TOWN. Snow falling from the heavens and landing in town is a joyous time. And it’s a nice present to Bulgarians, because it’s Independence Day — long holiday weekend from Thursday 3rd.

For clarity, Thursday 3rd March and Friday 4th are public holidays in Bulgaria. Here is the meteoblue forecast. I combine this with there in-app widget which I designed to help forecasting when snow will fall and at what height. For every 1,000 metres of height, the temperature drops approximately 8 degrees centigrade.

It’s a mind game. A flow state of happiness

As I mentioned in my last snow report from piste number 5, I have spoken to many visitors here in Bansko these last snow challenged weeks. Not one person has said they wish they has cancelled.

I think there are three reasons for this.

1. We all love a break from the usual routine we have to often endure in the office / place of work.

2. Bansko offers the best value for money in Europe, so you can party hard, enjoy après ski drinks and great food. That makes us all happier.

3. Being on the mountain and doing something we are absorbed in means we get into “flow state” — we are in the “Zone” and are in the “present”

The problem is the build up, talk of no snow, no fun, no skiing and snowboarding. The reality has, almost always, been better than perceptions.

But we all look at things differently, don’t we? And this accounts for difference of opinion you will see in the in-app chat in Bansko App. (Bansko App)

Okay, that’s enough of philosophical thoughts. I’ll be back up the hill Friday with another snow report — with snow falling around me (I really think so). In the meantime, if you’re looking to come out be sur etc grab yourself a great deal and save €€€’s on lift passes (6day only), ski and snowboard hire, lessons and transfers.

and finally, talking pf partying.


Horizon Festival 12th to 17th March

Bansko will host to the fourth Horizon Festival. This week-long event gathers lovers of electronic music for a series of raves across the resort. Leading DJ’s, record labels and club bands from around the globe descend on Bansko.

Six epic parties a day, from noon. Bansko offers superb music venues as regulars know well. Once again, it promises to be an epic party. Book your ski hire, lift passes and lessons here on asap — as we’re getting very full for that week.
