After the recognition, received by Bansko for the impeccable organization of the FIS World Cup events in ski season 2008/2009, as well as for the two Alpine ski races and one Super-G start for women in 2009-2010, Bansko became the host of four events of the FIS Alpine Ski World Cup for the upcoming ski season – two ladies’ and two men’s events.
