New avalanche near hut Banderitsa

31.01.2010

An avalanche fell from the Palashitsa area over the Banderitsa hut in Pirin, above Bansko ski resort. The group of nine people, are members of the Alpine Club in Sofia. They escaped from the Banderitsa hut, apparently to make a getaway going downhill from there.

Avalanche Bansko

Due to the warming weather, and perhaps unwise actions of tourists have caused the fall of the avalanche.

Mountain Rescue Service in Bansko was informed immediately and took emergency action. Vesselina Shishkova from Sofia suffered injuries, but the state of her health is fairly good.

Mountain Rescue Service again urges skiers and snowboarders do not go beyond the tracks and do not forget about the dangers of the mountain.
