The short movie - Ghost Mountain reveals the surreal picture of an abandoned ski resort on Vitosha Mountain and the desire of few skiers to return every winter to the slopes and revive the beloved mountain. There is a footage showing skiers in the same resort from the early 70’s.

Some moments from my vacation spent with friends in a small Alpine village near La Clusaz ski resort in the Aravis Mountain Range. Half of the time we were lucky to have big amounts of powder snow.

This February we made a trip from Bulgaria to Les Arcs in the French Alps to escape from the snowless winter in Eastern Europe. In mid February the conditions in the Alps were quite good - a few days of snowfall and several days of clear weather. We found some nice backcountry spots including Aiguille Rouge, Grand Col, Couloir Valdez, Villaroger wilderness area, Aiguille Grive. The video catches some exciting moments from the whole trip.

This is a short freeride mountain bike movie, shot on the scenic ridges above the village of Zhelyava, in Balkan mountains, near Sofia.
The main rider in the video /Milan Dimov/ is a famous Bulgarian downhill athlete, who looks aside of traditional race tracks in a search of more challenging, steep lines.

Some shots from my last ski trip to the Italian Alps, into a beautiful ski area of Alagna, so called Freeride Paradise. Although the bad snow conditions and high temperatures, we found some hidden north slopes and had very pleasant powder moments.
