This really is a ski center. If you don't ski, like me...than there are alternatives. My husband snow boards and I basically took a sled ) which has a starring wheel and brakes and raced him down the mountain which is about 11 km. They also have classes for beginners, a variety of slopes, and even a little bar in... More

We had no idea we could achieve so much as beginners. We were a group of 4 adults with 3 boys between us aged 8 - 11. Mariana Kotirkova was our Ski instructor and she is the reason we achieved what we achieved. I highly recommend her and clearly others do too as she was well known on the slopes.... More

I visited Bansko with a group of friends at the end of March 2014 and we truly enjoyed our time. Partly because the company was good and we had such a good time at our villa but also, in my opinion Bansko Ski was nor bad at all. The problem was lack of snow. Winter 2014 in Europe has been... More

Great ski resort. Plenty of slopes and things to do. The only downside was that there was very little slopes for begginers. All in all well-looked-after and I will be returning again for sure

The main problem with Bansko is the queue for the gondola in the morning. You've either got to get there when it opens at 8:00 am ish or after 11:00 oclock otherwise the queue can be over an hour long. You also have to through your British politeness out the window as the Bulgarian form of Queueing seems to involve... More

The ski resort of Bansko is probably the most popular in Bulgaria and attracts skiers/snowboarders from many countries and especially from northern Greece which is quite near. The center is well organized with many slopes varying from easy to quite difficult. There are many chair lifts that usually don't have queues. The problem is with the gondola that gets you... More

The slopes were excellent and the skiing was very good. this is the perfect place for beginners or to learn to ski. However it does need a few more runs as by the third day I had already done every run on the mountain.

Ski area good, small one but slopes are OK, not many people on the area (at least when I visited), good for low budget trip such as first time ski vacation or on the way, good for 2 max 3 days ski.

The food and drink prices up the mountain we found to be quite expensive. We did find a restaurant 2/3 rds of the way down on Blue 1. Not owned by Ulen and was excellent value for money. Would thoroughly recommend it. It was situated behind some billboards on the left of the slope.
