On 18.05.2004 Petko Totev climbed mt.Everest, the highest peak on the Earth. On 20.05.2004 Nikolai Petkov and Doichin Boianov climbed the peak without the use of oxygen equipment! BEFSA congratulates the climbers with their success!
From 19 to 21.03.2004 there was a ski meeting organized by BEFSA. During the trip we made some very nice ski descents, among which were "Stewe Wander's couloir (or may be better - Still we wander:)" couloir and the North face of Otovica peak in Rila mountains.
After long waiting we finally had the chance to ski in very, very deep powder. Two dump days brought 1,2m of fresh snow in Bansko forests. And of course we were the first to ski it:) You may see our first photo gallery - "the beginning of the season" (08.01.2004)
On 23.04.2003 Momchil Panayotov, Ilian Petrov, Boris Jordanov and POWDER Magazine guest Porter Fox made a descent of a very nice couloir in Rila Lakes hut region, Rila Mountains. They named it "Stewe Wander's couloir (or may be better - Still we wander:)" because of the incredible fog they had to fight with while searching for the beginning of the couloir. Check ou the photo gallery from the trip!
On 30.03.2003 Momchil Panayotov, Ilian Petrov and Krassimir Petrov made a first descent of the "Goat Couloir" in Rila Mountains. The vertical drop of the ski descent was 960m. Then followed 200m of "ski canyoning":)
