zrqoklvg21d
we came mainly for snowboard
mnqozeth21d
we are beginners
tmevqmodonskh21d
sorry the conditions aren't better. has been a crap year from what i hear
xuauqvok21d
im hoping to be in the slopes for at least 20 days a month
hqhbnwbxikdad21d
brace yourself for the wave of people
ngyydsri21d
yes, there is not much snow
ewfiuzhp21d
but im just learning
xutyqoml21d
i went today
apsjyrvqbpyzy21d
uk holidays are just coming up so there will be a giant influx coming soon
cpouqnjv21d
its crowded
yrtobypt21d
its hard for a beginner to learn in a crowded place
hvbcvynj21d
i will try to go as early as possible
ylatjifv21d
:(
wyzxkejojopvf21d
yeah, go at like 7:30 and that will help with the crowds
tmqiitex21d
will do that
djnddgvm21d
thanks
cobjgzyx21d
the gondola starts working 8:30
cyvjepvxxxkcr21d
hm, thought people said it opened earlier... must be crazy.
vczqsgudq21d
It can start at 8:15 and sometimes earlier
gtcrxvbdk21d
zycrbgpujvvbts I'm just going to miss you ๐Ÿ˜•
coacxtpbxjtna21d
when do you leave?
opzajoqgw20d
Mid Feb
uhwdjgwdxtipg20d
ah yeah, i'll still be in turkey at that point. ๐Ÿ™‚
qkkijyuv20d
hey! ๐Ÿ™‚
emgnxwak20d
dqbuyyxgbgneor How is Turkey for you so far?
eyzegpvtafvhy20d
love it. ๐Ÿ™‚ i'm in a small city on the med so the weather is generally good, there are tons of cafes and restaurants, the scenery is great and there are almost no tourists.
weexigso20d
Hm, interesting. I loved the food (and price of it) in Turkey, but in terms of internet it was a disaster ๐Ÿ™‚ But yes, itโ€™s relaxing there outside of big cities.
yrrtbdpimxwky20d
oh yeah. the internet at this particular hotel sucks. the last place i stayed was much better. most cafes have pretty good speeds, very easy to work with (for me), and when i work from home i tether to my phone. i paid gq $12 USD for 19 GB of data so the price is ok enough to do that and i think there are cheaper cell provider options.
aggfetxq18d
Guys, can you recommend me a good spa in bansko, there are a lot of options here. Would like to hear personal experiences
kgjhsuzvlvm18d
vimnsuplspkxag Iโ€™m learning that Bulgarian banks are increasingly rejecting new accounts for non-residents (especially for non-EU residents). Did you manage to do this before things changed?
yqipdhweexgwd18d
i did it in november
vnthaflzhftig18d
unicredit
kirqtsggxru18d
Ah, Iโ€™m getting anecdotes about there being changes applied at the end of the year ๐Ÿ˜•
jdvjcpcnhtstu18d
could very well be
peuhedmfuvhbo18d
where are you trying?
byrgqwbjzte18d
Iโ€™ve exchanged messages with Elena H.; sheโ€™s then been asking around and just reported back to me
vxwutvdoonfcr18d
i would try sofia banks. they're more likely to be flexible and used to working with all nationalities vs razlog or bansko
sjrmfmszdwx18d
Will do. Iโ€™ll be in Sofia at the end of Feb
wfmutrvj15d
Hey! if someone here is an experienced snowboarder and runs a digital business/site/app, I can offer you free consultancy in UI/UX Design or Development(Javascript) for free snowboard lessons ๐Ÿ™‚
swbgwllcdb15d
How is the snow in Bulgaria lately?
gjytfip14d
Hey icjarwpds how you like Bansko so far? Iโ€™m evaluating heading over there for a few week end of spring, early summer
tgjbgtgndtthk14d
it'll be pretty quiet that time of year, just keep that in mind. but i like bansko in summer. i'll be going back in april for a month or so.
yflzharvy13d
I've been here over a month and will be a bit sad to leave. Digging it here
azdhqorn13d
It's nice to hear you guys are enjoying Bansko, I want to go their mid march. I hope I still can catch some snow and some nomads there. Would love to hear more of how is it there now from you guys
twtrqpqhr13d
Supposedly March is the best time for snow? Hasn't been too much snow this year, but it seems to finally be coming
jqcphqcot13d
Feb is the busiest from what I hear
obgciejhn13d
So far, not too bad though
wlgapdkx13d
March might be easily better than january this year
gwogvxny13d
Iโ€™ve been here for a week, will be here all february
ledijcqk13d
there has not been much snow until today(its been snowing all day)
dfdzzofy13d
finally
hfswqbio13d
its been a little bit busy and slopes are crowded, for me as beginner it is terrible, but I see runs for more experienced(black runs) are almost empty
bedsfvri13d
anyways, im enjoying a lot bansko
geikgrmd13d
if you plan to stay more than 12 days skiing/snowboarding get a 20 days pass, you will save a lot!
nmvvlzax13d
Are you in Varna in winter??
vkkajmex13d
At least there are the warm spring pools you can swim in. And it is not too cold of a winter, otherwise the cold wind there is soul crushing
evuckofl13d
also, there are really cheap flights with wizzair to sofia
dwkfgeviniynr13d
wpgcwlumu apparently they closed down the beginner slope this year to use it for something else. pissed a lot of people off.
rcsxvixp13d
which one is the beginner slope? iโ€™ve been using 2 slopes in the upper base of gondola
txrksypuksopv13d
i have no idea. all i know is people were complaining that they closed it
ogngpfds13d
there are more than 5 beginner slopes there, 1 or 2 in the lower part could be easily closed due to the lack of snow.
sslkvdngupnsn13d
๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ all i know is my local friends were moaning because the beginner runs were closed so they were having to play dodge the newbie on the more advanced slopes.
nkvjygnq13d
gotcha
fwewoaug13d
to me the main issue is many people coming behind, it makes me nervous because I canโ€™t control 100% yet my board and sometimes i just randomly fall or I canโ€™t to do turns to control my speed
tpigaqir13d
You should get a 1 to 1 instructor, they will teach you to turn in 2-4 hours
owbjiyje13d
you can also join a group if the price makes more sense, but might take a bit more time withing a group. Walk around and ask.
wckyppao13d
Or even walk around on Bunderitza and see if you particularly like somebody teaching around and ask them.
ueesdvro13d
Not being in control of your board can lead to a bad fall that might cost you way much more.
xzxfjfsy13d
Usually it is the responsibility of the one behind to protect the one in front and overtake safely, but nobody can do that if you are unpredictable.
hqhzyoig13d
I cannot recommend this high enough and it is money well spent.
There are deals on equipment rental plus instructor too.
zobityfy13d
rryjgkfqr thank you! for the tips
zangubvfw13d
Definitely take lessons
ultjcvoc13d
ntvidhgpl sorry, I didnโ€™t explained well myself, I can do turns when there is nobody behind me, but when I hear another skier/boarder behind I just get very nervous to make any turn
dyhoczulb13d
It really is money well spent
kcabovnmn13d
You will learn so much faster and avoid really nasty bad habits which will take years to unlearn if you stick with them. Speaking from experience here
uxhkiziwb13d
I've been boarding for nearly 18 years, but never took lessons and only recently learned why I never felt very stable. Have been fighting my bad posture/form almost every day on the slopes!
ivqchsot13d
Oh, my.
thgaqhpw13d
Lessons in some sports should not be skippedโ€ฆ
ofnapqyk13d
thanks urrcwewuiz
ebvphvvc13d
I agree, I will find an instructor soon, at least for 2 hours of classes
czbkwdmg13d
Iโ€™ve been falling a lot! ๐Ÿ™‚
xyvkyswo13d
well, save yourself the body trauma
noymsxsr13d
also, everyone who is snowboarding should get at minimum knee protectors. It is good to have a helmet too, but knee protectors are needed much more often. Especially on banskoโ€™s spring ice.
ptlcxnzp13d
yes, Iโ€™m using, knee protectors, wrist pads, padded shorts, helmet
uibvfymy13d
question guys
aeenmhht13d
ive been buying day pass for the last 6 days
czhrcalt13d
im thinking to buy 20 days pass online
gcgyjmtu13d
have you tried to buy 20 day pass online using the same chip card?
nwvkhdyr13d
I have been skipping bansko the last years and this is a new pass, so cannot help with thatโ€ฆ
hxaiipdii13d
You should be able to
hptebphh8d
Anyone attending the Bansko Nomad Fest later this year?
lhnhhhgcmw8d
Yeah Iโ€™m going
vpigbsninn8d
Gonna stay for a few months
zjsdyxzerzumd8d
I'll probably be in town but i will not be attending.
fauzlpmek7d
Iโ€™ll be there too
nixwdpvdkbbmp6d
