Lifts and Winds

Today was sunny and warm, but extremely windy. Due to the heavy winds, Gondola Cabin Lift was not working up until 2 pm. People were taken to Banderishka polyana with shuttle buses and unfortunately, there was a bit of a queue for the buses.
From mid station up nothing was open either, except for Kolarski lift and there was a pretty big line for it.
Currently (after 2 pm today 26.01) all lifts are open except for Banderitsa 2, Plato, Tsarna Mogila.

Cloudy and windy on Thursday, 25.01.24, Bansko

Friday (26.01) as we mentioned above was quite sunny, but extremely windy.

Snow and Slopes

As far as the snow is concerned, from mid station down snow is good, but in some parts it is not enough and there are darker areas here and there, plus a few stones showing up, too.
Good news is that Chalin Valog 2 (as mentioned above) has been working since yesterday. However, its steeper parts have not been groomed, so basically there has been only one working slope there except for the Detska Panitsa. Another good news is that there was no queue for the Chalin Valog chair lift.
Currently all slopes are open except for Balkaniada, Strazhite, Tsarna Mogila, Chalin Valog 1, Ski road 2;
