    Klang

    Posted on February 2, 2014 by in blog

      N.B. updated since originally posted The Picture is of Shane McConkey playing the part of saucer boy in one of his films, he is a bit of a hero of mine! Saucer Boy is pretty much the embodiment of Klang. This strange phenomenon where by men feel they can buy tallent, the thinking goes “I look […]

    Weather

    Posted on January 31, 2014 by in blog

        Most winters I will be checking the weather at least 3 or 4 times each morning. Normally it is the first thing I do as I wake up. Roll over, kill the alarm, activate the WiFi and have a quick look to see if anything has changed while I was asleep.  Drive to […]

    Steak house Lazur

    Posted on January 28, 2014 by in blog

      I don’t often go out in Bansko and I normally only go to places I know and love. My OCD is getting a bit embarrassing on this subject as not only do I tend to only go to the same places but we also tend to eat the same things there. At the log house […]

    Dragon Alliance

    Posted on January 23, 2014 by in blog

        Respect to Dragon Alliance click here for their website I bought a pair of goggles from them last season and due to some unlucky defect with the pair I bought all the film came off the lens. After a disappointing experience with their agent in BG I pretty much gave up on them and […]

    A black and white world

    Posted on January 22, 2014 by in blog

    It has finally snowed and snowed and snowed! I went up the hill to have a proper look today and found a black and white winter wonderland. It’s not much maybe 15 or 20 centimetres and it is really wet and heavy but it is snow and with a bit of work it should keep […]

    It’s all amazing

    Posted on January 21, 2014 by in blog

        As I am getting grief from all sides for my brutal honesty about the conditions on the slopes in Bansko I have decided to turn over a new leaf and start talking Bansko up like the fluff monkeys! It’s amazing! The skiing is great the snow conditions in reality are sooo much better […]

    Boots and blisters

    Posted on January 11, 2014 by in blog

    Freeride skiing is all about, well if you’ve read some of my older posts you’ll know what I think it is all about. What it is not about is sunny days loafing around resort waiting for the snow to come. The winter is a shockingly emotional time for me, sleep deprivation due to the long […]

    Doom!

    Posted on January 5, 2014 by in blog

      I am now pretty certain that this is the worst start to a winter season I have ever seen. It feels like a lifetime ago that it last snowed the mountains are more brown than white and the only reason there is any skiing at all is because Ulen have sucked the river dry […]

    The Bulgarians are coming!

    Posted on January 1, 2014 by in blog

      A chill wind is blowing through Bansko, on the streets of Sofia the only thing moving is tumble weed, empty chair lifts creak in the breeze. On our street a lone dog howls gripped by the icy fingers of Death . The last bus for England left this morning, the old, the weak, unemployed and infirm were […]

    Hotels v Apartments

    Posted on December 28, 2013 by in blog

        I had a strange conversation the other day with a very good friend who owns some apartments out here. The jist of it was that I was perceived to be Satan by the owners and managers of  their block because I’m anti apartments. I don’t see any  competition for guest nights between apartment […]
