I'm at my apartment for two weeks skiing, after a great rental season.  All my guests really enjoyed their stay here and gave me great feedback - thanks guys!  There is snow falling today, to top up the good stuff on top of the mountain.  As always at this time of year, the afternoon snow gets a bit heavy but it's still great in the mornings and most of the day up top.

From 16th February 2013, Easyjet starts flights from Stansted to Sofia, from £23.99 each way!  Initially flying on Tuesdays and Saturdays only (this is how the Gatwick route started out three years ago), there will probably be more flights offered as the route becomes more popular.  So for those of you who live north of London, this will be good news.
