Excellent place and great value. Gondola lift bit of a nightmare at peak times. 8:30 till 10 am as long queue but worth the wait. Food and drink more expensive as you would... read more

Unfortunately the ski traces and the beautiful nature are the only advantages of Bansko... It is very crowded and the crowd consists of mainly very low quality tourists - at the gondola lift you will have to wait at least about an hour if you go another so before opening (8:30 h). Then ... on the queue and in the... More

This was our first Ski experience and we're very happy that we chose the Bansko ski resort. While not a big ski resort (compared to other places; only 70km of ski slopes), it offers great variety for beginners as well as experienced skiers. The instructors were very friendly and eager to teach, and within 2 days (!!) we were already... More

Bansko ski resort is very good place. It has very good infrastructure, too many places for rent ski. Too many hotels and restorants located in Bansko. You can find hotels for any price, from economic up too Kempinski. At Bansko have only one problem: not so much blue lines for beginners. As result too much people on the lines 4... More

Experience was far beyond expectations! On the day of arrival to Sofia it was -19, so far so good ;) the transfer to Bansko resort from Sofia took 3 hours by bus. The whole town is primarily hotels, bars and restaurants, casinos and night clubs. Kids welcome everywhere! Prices are very cheap compare to London (£1~2.17lev), so you can spend... More

Among many years and many places, this was the worst ski holiday. The slope was completely unprepared, each day more and more snow drifts. The staff cares only about selling more and more tickets, no one cares about slopes. Many people were injuried and taken by rescue team. Definitely discourage.

Excellent place and great value. Gondola lift bit of a nightmare at peak times. 8:30 till 10 am as long queue but worth the wait. Food and drink more expensive as you would expect on the slopes but good choice. Nice mix of nursery and easy blue runs.

We had a great week in Bankso, the 7km ski road (blue slope) is ideal to find your ski legs or if you're learning. It got very busy at the weekend with lots of people travelling by car to the resort. The gondola que could get quite long late morning but if you're in bansko and get yourself out of... More

We were lucky with everything: hotel, weather, number of people on the slopes. Never had to wait more than 5 min - rent, transfer, ski passes, gondola, restaurants. They say you have to make sure there are no school vacation or public holidays in Bulgaria when you're planning your trip. We came to Bansko right after NY holidays had finished.... More

Fantastic place to ski!! Had an amazing time. Ski runs where great for all level of abilities. Tip: - You can ski all the way down the mountain back to the town. I would recommend for a cheap lunch to get a sandwich from Subway to take up the mountain. Make sure you check the weather especially the wind they... More
