Welcome

Bansko is Bulgaria's first class mountain resort and the gateway to the spectacular Pirin Mountains. During the last few years this historical town has seen huge investment with new and exciting resort facilities being constructed. Bansko is best known for it's superb ski season, from December through till the end of April. This cultural centre can also boast a brand new ski infrastructure covering 70 kilometres of marked pistes suitable for all types of skier and boarder, from novice to expert. Bansko is listed as a UNESCO world heritage site and is situated 161 kilometres from Sofia which is approximately a two hour drive away. Bansko has 55 snow canons covering 80% of the pistes so can guarantee snow coverage also the longest run is 16 kilometres and a 5 kilometres cross country track. During the 08/09 season, Bansko saw its largest snowfall for more than a decade with over a metre in the town and two metres on the mountains. The Old Town of Bansko has a vibrant feel with a staggering 100+ mehanas (traditional restaurants) which serve local and European cuisine and offers a warm atmosphere for all the family with its distinct local folk music.

“The pool and sauna are a godsend–self catering has been the way to go with the odd eating out at one of the many restaurants all of which are pretty good. Overall from a cost perspective we have been able to ski there for the past 3 seasons for about £2000 for the 4 of us including flights, transfers, accommodation, food, ski hire and ski passes–hey what more could you ask for!!”
