The site is well organised, not too crowded. My kids (ages 11-21) took the guided group classes and found them useful. Easy to find accommodation in a walking distance from the Gondola, but there are also shuttles. Many stores to rent all the equipment you...More

Bansko is a small city for ski and snowboard lovers, very cheap and nice. The site is about 70 km of snow routes located around beautiful trees. a great site to start snowboarding and even a weekend can be cool for it.

This place has changed for the worst, I have the feeling the gondolas are deliberately slowed down to push forward the development of a new gondola. Not the right approach as this pushed people away not towards. We queued for nearly 2 hrs in the...More

Highly recommend Bansko Ski Center. Let start from beginning. Plenty hotels, near Gondola, lot of rental for ski equipment. Ok, you will rent average ski equipment but for couple days fair enough. Now Gondola, you have to wait up to 1h but still I was...More
