President Bulgarian Ski Federation
On behalf of the Bulgarian Ski Federation, I am pleased to welcome all of you here in our country for the Ladies and Men 2018 FIS Snowboard World Cup Bansko. We are very proud to have you here in the heart of the Balkans, in the foothills of the magnificent Pirin Mountain, and we aim to combine this snowboard festival with an exciting experience and true friendship.
We are sure that these prestigious snowboard competitions will keep part of your heart in Bansko. We also strongly believe that all our visitors, especially our future winners, will keep great memories of the warm hospitality offered by the community of Bansko and the unforgettable beauty of the Pirin Mountain. On the other hand, our spectators will remember the fair play and the sportsmanship demonstrated by all the athletes while fighting hard to achieve their potential. It’s definitely our main goal to create a unique atmosphere during our World Cups that will make it really special for everybody!
The members of the National Ski Federation and the Organising Committee have been working hard during the last years to overcome difficult challenges and to achieve excellent organisation of FIS, European Cup and World Cup races, trying to establish Bulgaria’s place on the map of major international sporting events. So we hope you’ll enjoy the forthcoming World Cup stage here.
I would like to thank you again for coming here and wish all participants
