March 18 2019

The first day of the 21stInterski Congress in Pamporovo ended with a thunderous party in the Convention Center of Hotel Perelik. Snow sports instructors and experts from 36 countries reveled till the wee hours at the welcome bash featuring live performances, lots of dancing and a magnificent lights show.

To jump-start the party mood, the hosts offered each guest a shot of mouth-burning Bulgarian rakia, following which Danny Milev struck up his band with a series of cover versions of Bulgarian and foreign pop classics. The ski and showboard instructors, who during the daytime had been demonstrating their skills at the official opening event on Stenata slope, and later attended the first lecture of the forum, did not wait for an invitation to hit the dance floor. The mood in the dance hall rose with each new number till it reached boiling point, getting ski experts of all ages and nationalities into the swing of things.

To give revelers a break to gather their breath, the dance routines were interspersed withnumbers performedby the Firiter Fire and Shadow Troupe and the girls of the Mystic String Quartet. The bash ended in the early hours of January 18 with a lively mix by DJ Tisho; on leaving, the delegates wished one another to stay in a party mood until the very last day of the Congress.
