Part two of our marriage’s honeymoon was to explore the backcountry of Bulgaria. Thus, we hoped in a car and made our way first to Bansko to get a general feel of the area. Quickly, getting overwhelmed by the tourist scene of people from the UK that were there to celebrate the New Years, we high tailed our skis and splitboard into the backcountry of the Pirin Mountains with beautiful descents back towards the Bansko valley. We then moved onward over a course of a week sampling the backcountry touring above Bezbog Hut and then in the Rila Mountains of Seven Lakes region and the beautiful Mount Malyovitsa.
