Description

Today I bring a new proposal for those advanced splitboarders who want to improve or renew their current skills. It consists in a 2-day splitboarding course in the Bulgarian ski resort of Bansko, the best of the country. 

Let me give you a short introduction about Bansko. As you probably know, it is one of the biggest winter resorts of Bulgaria, situated at 925 meters above sea level. Moreover, the town of Bansko lies at the foot of Pirin Mountain, 150 kilometers far from Sofia, the capital of the country.

Over time, Bansko has been positioning itself as as one of the best ski centers in all the region, attracting many Bulgarian and people around the world. Undoubtedly, Bansko is known among tourists mainly as a destination for skiing, snowboarding and splitboarding. Therefore, it has 75 km of ski tracks, the longest of them with a length of 16 km. Lastly, about 90% of these tracks are equipped with snow cannons providing the highest long-lasting snow quality.

Now, I think there is no doubt why I think Bansko is the best spot for this advanced splitboarding course.

If you want to know more about this learning trip, please find here below some of the lessons you will take during the course:

  • Use of technical equipment;

  • Procedures for skiing / snowboarding in avalanche terrain;

  • Maximize the efficiency when using you skins;

  • Kick and tricks turning skills;

  • Techniques of skiing and snow boarding on off-piste skiing runs;

  • Individual lessons about downhill skiing skills.

In addition, all that theory will be complemented by intensive splitboarding practices in the best areas of Bansko.

This course can be run from 2 persons and up to 5 people maximum. In that way you can take the best of the program. For your information, the price includes all the necessary technical equipment. You’ll only have to bring your own splitboard. You can also rent it for about 40$ pers day.

If you want to know more about departures, lodging or booking, please feel free to contact me. It will be a honour for me to be your splitboarding instructor in a region that I know better than anyone! I await your message.

Mountain Leader

I started snowboarding when only a few people were doing it. At the time, it was just an emerging sport. We used to experiment modifying our equipment by hand. We didn't know about first lines or powder days, we were simply having fun and enjoying amazing snow.
As things got more serious, I gained experience and learned more about the mountains. I found so many new possibilities!
From the mountains, I learned how to enjoy with just the essentials, to travel lightly and to cherish the company of a friend on the snow. But I also learned responsibility and learned from my mistakes.
This passion led me in 1994 to the Himalayas, where the beauty of the scenery and the amazing peaks were almost overwhelming. In summer, I started exploring the mountain and in this way I discovered climbing.
All of this inspired me to become a professional. Now I have a Ski Instructor Qualification Class C, a Professional Mountain Leader UIMLA Qualification and in 2009 I became the first Bulgarian snowboard guide. Since 2017, I'm a snowboard Instructor qualification Level “3” and international ISIA.
