Skiing & Snowboarding in Bansko, Bulgaria

Bulgaria's most popular ski destination, Bansko is a dream resort for beginners and intermediates on a budget. Offering amazing value throughout the season, first-time visitors to Bansko often quote the price tag as a key motivation for booking. But their list of reasons for coming back year after year tends to be much longer: Bansko is a charming resort with great skiing, plenty of character and a friendly 'buzz' in the town itself.

Having received millions of euros in investment over recent years, Bansko boasts some of the best infrastructure to be found anywhere in Bulgaria. Perhaps the best example of this is the main eight-man gondola lift which conveys visitors from the town to 'Bunderishka', the access point to the slopes of the Pirin National Park. From here, two fast chair lifts offer access to the north-facing slopes and summits above. A home-bound blue slope runs all the way back to the town itself.

In the sprawling shadow of the Pirin Mountains, Bansko offers good snow coverage from mid-December to mid-May, giving it the longest ski season anywhere in Bulgaria. With a summit altitude of 2,560m and a vertical drop of 1,570m, there is great skiing to be had here for the beginners and intermediates who tend to favour this resort. Almost eighty-five per cent of Bansko ski runs are suitable for lower- and middle-ability skiers. Although this perhaps places some limitations on the most expert skiers, it does make Bansko an ideal destination for mixed-ability groups: everyone can to ski at their own level and meet up regularly.
