The ski world is saddened by the news that one of our great competitors, Neal Valiton, passed away recently. Winner of The North Face Young Gun Award at the Subaru US Freeskiing Nationals, Neal skied out of this world on April 11th at the age of 18, just days before his 19th birthday. He died doing what he loved, skiing in Tignes, France.
EURONEWS has responded to the threats against Bulgarian Nature with a special report from BANSKO region (enormous building constructions) and Cape Kaliakra region.
WE CARE about Bulgarian Nature and HER Future. Because in Pirin mountains (above BANSKO) there are 1300 years old trees and some of the best-preserved coniferous forests in the World, because through Cape Kaliakra every year pass thousands of migrating Birds, BECAUSE we don't like everything to be Concrete and Steel... We think, you should also be aware of this.
As always - very interesting tricks. For the first time in Bulgaria - "1080" by Alexander Karadinkov. Also a perfect switch-back flip from Dancho Roev. We were very glad to see some new faces on the scene:)
