From myself, my husband and my family we just wanted to say a huge thank you to Alex.

He took me for two, two hours sessions last week 1:1 and everyone commented on my progress. The service that was provided was excellent, Alex’s professional manner, teaching ability and great people skills all contributed to a great experience. My progression throughout both sessions was accelerated and I came back feeling exhilarated.
When I came back from my lesson, all of my family commented on how professional Alex was and said on our return, even though they are avid skiers, they would definitely be booking lessons with yourselves.

Again I would like to say a huge thank you from someone who could barely ski at the beginning of the week to now, albeit not the best, but I can certainly do it!!😃😆

Thank you again and look forward to seeing you next time.

I have been a customer of Totem Sport for the last 5 years. I started with rental equipment and quickly progressed to buying my own skis and boots. Their focus is on what is best for your level of skiing. You have the option to try before you buy. I have had the privilege to try out lots of different types of skis over the years, including prototype Head skis that are for the following season.
Everyone at Totem makes you feel welcome from the moment you walk through the door. Ski boot fitting is undertaken with patience and you quickly realise by very knowledgable professionals. Ski servicing is excellent. The instructors are dedicated and very friendly. If your hiring equipment rest assured that it is all carefully maintained. I thoroughly recommend using Totem Sport. Trust has to be earned. They have mine. Enjoy your skiing with carefully selected equipment that matches your ability.

Great snowboarding lessons. Our 9 year old son had snowboarding lesson with Matius. Within four days he went from a complete beginner to tackling blue and red runs. Matius was great with our son who enjoyed every minutes. Matius also sent us photos and videos which were excellent. Highly recommended. A very happy boy.

Booked Bansko as a very last minute ski trip as previous holiday cancelled due to the storm! 24 hours before my family were due to arrive was messaging Rosalina who provided me with all the information and reassurance I needed that my boys would be in safe hands! And they weren't disappointed! Professional fitting and ski equipment and located right by the lifts. Alexander was our instructor for 4 x 2hour private lessons and my family were not disappointed. He was very professional and a great teacher! I now have 2 very proficient and confident skiers in the house!!!

I went on a ski vacation with our three girls. I chose instructors from TOTEM Ski Center. I recommend this school with confidence and pleasure. They are professional people, attentive to details and correct. Throughout the period I had 1/1 personal instructors. We left satisfied and eager to return to BANSKO.
The Manea family thanks you!

We looked at several ski schools in Bansko and finally went with TOTEM for a week of private lessons! Very glad with the decision! The instructor, Dani, was absolutely brilliant, he was very patient but also gave me lots of encouragement and was genuinely interested in seeing my progress. I feel I progressed way beyond my expectations and had fun at the same time. The head office was also very organized and professional when we needed to speak to them to arrange ski rentals, meeting points, etc. Highly recommended, I would go with Totem and Dani again should we decide to go back to Bansko.

Alexander is the nicest coach ever ! Our group was beginners level but still with very different abilities , we had two lessons with him and Alexander managed all four of us perfectly ! Very good teaching style and nice personality worth every penny ! After his lessons everyone was able to to do ski road safely where previously some of us were afraid to leave kids area and some of us could not stop properly at all or manage speed going down a slope :) Best wishes from Ice tea , Merlin, Guoda and Justin ;)
