A Champion’s start of the new season

A Champion’s start of the new season
 
 

For 12-th time Bansko opened the new ski season in champion’s style – with thousands of ski fans and VIP guests, including Mr. Krasen Kralev – Minister of Sports, and Mrs. Nikolina Angelkova – Minister of Tourism. The weather also supported the event with plenty of bright sunlight and crisp, fresh snow.

But the biggest celebrity of the celebration was 3-time World champion, Olympic champion from 2002 and 2-time winner of the FIS big Crystal Globe, Stefan Eberharter. The 45-year old Austrian was personally invited by his compatriot, ski legend Marc Girardelli, who is a global Ambassador of Bansko. Marc and Stefan were joined by best Bulgarian skier ever, Petar Popangelov, for the first ever team race “Get in the champion’s team”. Each captain led a team of 15 ski enthusiasts on main ski track, “Alberto Tomba”, and finally… Eberharter’s team won! One of his men was even faster than the Austrian veteran!

The race was followed by 4-th edition of “Treasure hunters”, a fun game where half-meter deep snow hides many prizes, including keys to a brand new Audi A3!  A lucky ski fan from Zlatitsa dug the keys and started the car right of the snow.
Noisy and tasty was the show at the central city square, too. Folklore dances, culinary “theater”, local dishes and lots of music kept the spirits high until the traditional fireworks.

The night ended with bombastic Londn-style party at Happy End apres-ski bar, where famous British DJ Marc Doyle exploded with his label Fierce Angel.
