Bansko Bar Crawl.

You might think that a Tuesday night in Bansko would be quiet but No! Every week, we ask our guests if they want to come with us and do the Bansko Bar Crawl. It’s a great time to see Bansko by night, have fun and for some of our guests, to try to speak French!
This season we have been singing at the karaoke bar, clubbing at Oxygen, dancing on the bar at Jack’s House, and watching the live band at Amigos…

So now it’s the end of the season and it is with a lot of pride that it’s time for us to look back over the ski season and award the winners:

CATEGORY Best Singers
Some have been a bit shy to start but then, the machine was on and some people just didn’t want to let go of the microphone! Thank you to all the team for that great night.

CATEGORY Best Costume

A fabulous week with a daily vote to choose the lucky?? one who had to dress up in a ballet Tutu during the day on the ski slopes.

Our guests took it in turns to wear a ballet tutu on the slopes!

CATEGORY Best time on the slopes

Even with two injured people, this afternoon on the slopes was perfect! Just be careful on the way back on the Homerun….

It's always a worry when your guests hurt themselves on the last run of the day :( but these guys didn't let that stop them from having a great ski holiday in Bansko.

There was dancing…. but also smoking Shisha pipes and watching Bulgarians trying to beat Craig’s punching ball record. So yes, entertainment is the word!

Experiencing all that Bansko has to offer... including the Shish pipe bar!

Horizon Festival, Bansko

Now that I’ve fully recovered from Horizon Festival I can take some time to write a quick review!

This was Horizon’s second year; last year it had a great start and the organisers did a great job of improving the festival to make it bigger and better with new venues and different events like Pro Rider Demo’s in the park.

Once again, there was a fantastic, friendly atmosphere thoughout Horizon – the partygoers were loving the fresh snow that conveniently arrived for them at the beginning of the week as well as the budget loving prices in Bansko. The Horizon staff were great; cheerful and helpful and even the DJs were joining the crowd to party after their sets.

At the ripe old age of 33 I couldn’t quite manage a full week of partying (my excuse is that I had to do some work) but I loved that Hotel Tofana got involved this year at Chalin Valog. It’s a great mountain venue and the nicely organised shuttle buses made it easy to access for those who didn’t make it onto the slopes. Kerri Chandler was fantastic – please can he come back next year??

Even though I didn’t make it to all the parties, it was great to see the chilled out town of Bansko hosting a festival like this; the energy and atmosphere in town is fantastic and the display of animal onsie’s and 80s retro ski gear on the slopes was very impressive.
