A wonderful place for ski vacation

Appart of the waiting on the gondola lift, everything else was fantastic and very well organised. The slopes are very well maintained, the ski lifts are fast and modern.

The slopes are really long, the longest is around 10 km, and I think the average is around 3 km. But on the other hand, there is only few slopes (practically 3 red slopes and 2 blue ones). Also, the queues on the gondola are incredible, I was there in February for 4 days and never waited less than 45... More

We came for a 4 day ski holiday in bansko and purchased group ski lessons. We were 16 students for one teacher and he didn't speak English!!! The attitude at the office was very rude, I was told that because I'm in Bulgaria in need to speak Bulgarian... There was also no difference between intermediate and beginner group lessons -...

We booked three days of lessons for three beginners with Ulen. Each day was a different and complete disaster. 30 beginners to one (or poss 2 teachers). That's usual we were told! The first afternoon the teacher spent the whole 2 hours texting/flirting with another teacher! A complete lack of process and no empathy from the 'base camp' office when... More

This is our second visit to Bansko. Good points - decent range of slopes for beginners and intermediates, good value ski hire / lift pass / tuition and food/drink on the slopes. Great instructors - always a bit hit and miss but this year we each had really nice instructors and the kids loved theirs (thanks Katy, Svet & Mia),... More

Ski in Bansko is good, but the crowd on the tracks is terrible.. too many begginers as in ski, same in snowboard.. the maintenance of tracks could be also better, because there is a lot of ice on tracks..

The three of us spent a five days ski vacation at Bansko. The view is amazing, the snow is great and there is a variety of ski pistes, depending on your skill. The two main problems were: 1. The 45-50 minutes queues to the site itself and on the beginners' t-bars. 2. We took a 4 days beginners ski course,... More
