General Information - 6th Announcement

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

With great pleasure we invite you to join us at the Third Scientific Conference SPE BALKAN SKI, which will be held from 13th March to 17th March 2022 at the Pamporovo Ski Center, Bulgaria. After a successfully organized first Conference at Kopaonik, Serbia (2017), and a second Conference at Jahorina, Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina (2018), we have the pleasure of organizing a third Scientific Conference SPE BALKAN SKI, this time on Pamporovo, a peak in the Bulgarian mountains.


SPE - Science, Practice & Education - BALKAN SKI CONFERENCE is a fusion of curiosity (science), will to work on snow (practice) and selfless transfer of knowledge (education) among people who like snowy mountains and the most beautiful sports in the world – alpine skiing and snowboarding.

After the wonderful experience we all had at the first and second SPE BALKAN SKI CONFERENCES, where several hundred ski instructors, trainers, professors and other experts in the fields of alpine skiing and snowboarding witnessed an unforgettable story of interaction between science, profession, practice and social events, we decided to invite you to come take a step further with us to reach and, perhaps, even surpass the SPE Balkan SKI goals.

The SPE BALKAN SKI Conference is substantially and professionally supported by the IVSS – International Association Snowsports at Schools and Universities.
