Bansko, Pirin mounatins

Lying on the snow, far from the top, trying to find some shelter from the strong wind. 

 Sometimes the mountain doesn't let you go further.

White passion. Nothing else can bring you such enjoyment and freedom.

Skiing in powder snow can be compared to flying, bacause the soul separates from the body.

 One of those great moments, early in the morning when you are full of energy and know that the day belongs to you and don't have to worry about anything.

Your mind is absorbed only by the idea of riding downhill.

We found that northeast slope by chance. The snow was well packed but still fresh. We spent the whole next day climbing up and riding down.

The skiing and snowboarding moments were only a small part of the trip. The rest was planning, climbing and carrying equipment.

There is an immense pleasure and at the same time a huge excitement to watch your friends riding down.

You are thrilled by the beauty of the motion and little worried are they going to make it.

A moment of relief is when you know that you left some nice lines behind and everybody is safe and sound.

Climbing Mt Todorka, Pirin mountains

It was a foggy day and we spent our time low in the forest. Then later in the afternoon, all of a sudden, the sun rays broke through and we looked up to the Mt Todorka summit.

There was a point when the skiing and snowboarding level rose up quickly.

There is a very thin line between our capabilities and desires. If we don't differentiate between the two we might not survive.

One of the last day of shooting. We started rather vigorously uphill but soon realized that the wind is stronger than we expecetd.

As Stoil Dimitrov would say later "This was the hardest moment of shooting ever. But it was worth it."
