Nikolay Pavlov Back in the 1990 when snowboarding was a novelty in Bulgaria, Niki started exploring the sport. Happily shredding deep fresh powder, making wonderful series of runs he experienced the joy of the physical & mental challenges, being alone in the mountain and the ability to push himself to the limit. Playing with the adrenalin rush on one hand and the meditative state on the other is what fuels his love for snowboarding. After mastering the technique, snowboarding became a journey dedicated to understanding the mind. It was clear for him that further advancement depended on constant practice, mental discipline and developing creativity. After these experiences he decided that it’s worth sharing the knowledge and experience with others and in 2001 became a snowboarding instructor and a mountain guide. He is also founder of the first Bulgarian Splitboard Festival promoting split boarding and safety practices in the mountain. Niki is also founder of Split the Mountain, a project dedicated to free ride snowboarding, backcountry split board guiding, courses and tours across Europe and Asia.
