It might surprise you but the snowboarding happens to be one of the most successful sports in Bulgaria recently. Radoslav Yankov, a World cup holder in parallel slalom is a source of national pride in the past couple of years, and there is also representative of the country in the women’s elite – Alexandra Zhekova. Bansko in particular gains in popularity among boarding fans, partially because of the hosting of the World cup starts on the regular basis currently. The Pirin mountain resort once again welcomes the best athletes for the competitions on highest level scheduled for the last weekend of January 2018. But snowboarding in Bansko isn’t just about the tournament of the top category professionals. The magic is there for everyone – from the rookie to the champion.
