Description

Start of the top station of Banderitsa 2 ski lift and hike up, following the distinctive airy north ridge, to the summit of Todorka (2746 metres). The use of crampons is highly recommended. From the peak you have many possible entries into the North face. It is visible from the resort, so the skiers can choose a line, according to their abilities. At the bottom of the run go back to the pistes of the resort. Beware of the fact that the Bulgarian rescue service has no rescue helicopter, and it can take a long time to get to casualties. There is no avalanche bulletin for the Bulgarian mountains.
