The 2009/2010 winter season in Bansko was opened officially on December 12th with a parallel slalom and demonstration slaloms of Olympic and world champions in the Banderishka Polyana area. Ski legends Marc Ghirardelli, Pirmin Zurbriggen, Petar Popangelov, Bojan Krizaj, Paul Accola, Patrick Ortlieb, Peter Muller and Hubert Strolz were the stars of the day.
