The other reviews on here about Bansko amaze me. The place is dreadful, The skiing is well below average even if you are a beginner, the ski lifts are a joke, the people are nothing but rude, the town is full of strip joints, an army of 18-30 groups pretending to have fun downing shots and on the doors to...

Have been here twice before. Good to see how well its developing. Facilities are excellent and the restaurants and bars down towards the town have great food. Personally prefer more local bars with traditional entertainment, but each to their own. Skiing facilities first class, not expensive and good kit for hire.

Very nice and relatively small sites. Good for a long weekend. To small for 1 week of ski/snowboard to my opinion No après ski. Some local dance clubs available but there are not so good

This is an amazing location, great view and much snow even in April. We had a great time, and we don't even ski. The snow, the forest and the tourist facilities are enough for an excellent time.

Get slopes, great night life and really nice people. Stayed in St George Palace and apart hotel was very nice! The only problem i encountered was long queues for the gondola to get up the mountain. This can be resolved by catching a taxi of the free bus.

We actually did 3 days boarding and 3 days skiing. The lessons were cheaper than other resorts and visiting in April meant that the Lift Pass was reduced by 70 BGN each - bonus! We were though blessed with a late flurry of snow which kept the slopes in great condition for this time of year and had some wonderful... More

This was our third visit to this resort. Keep returning as always guaranteed snow, as this is provided by snow cannons if none of the real stuff is falling. We were luck enough this year to get three days of new snow so slopes were lovely and fluffy great for skiing on especially if your a beginner. Ulen ski school... More

This was only my second snowboarding trip, so I don't have a lot to compare it to, but I certainly didn't have any complaints. There were no queues and not vey many people on the slopes at all. We went in March and only had a few days were the snow wasn't absolutely ideal, the rest of the time we... More

Great place for Beginners. I would recommend taking private lessons and not group teaching. The facility is great. The maintenance is high. At the end of March there is no queue and overall highly recommended!

We arrived the first week of April - and surprised to see so much snow!! even on the bunny slope there was over 3m of snow, with more falling the first few days. The kids had lessons which were great as they went from being completely beginners ( they skied 5 yrs ago but too young to remember) to coming... More
