We visited in august, obviously not for ski. We enjoyed the lift and up there, there were some cool activities like water slides, regular slides, golf, human table soccer and more.

Loved skiing in Bansko, but many rude skiers. Pushing past those who are learning. Staff also rude. But once you're up there it is great, we really enjoyed it.

It's a great place to ski at. However, Borovets has many more slopes. The resort's huge downside are the ski coaches. DON'T TRUST THEM!!! One of them left my kid on the slope because he was descending slowly.

It was nice to find out that you can find great skiing place in Bulgaria, not just great beaches. Slopes are good and there is lots of other things to do aswell. Just make sure going in part of the winter when there is enough snow. Over all it's super cheap compared to Alps etc.

Lovely long tree lined home road with a couple of options for getting down was great for families. Had a problem with the ski school that we booked for the kids - instructor didn't turn up 2 days running but we got a refund through our tour operator. Nice skiing option and cheaper than many European venues

The town seems to come alive at weekends with groups visiting. At first there doesn't seem a lot to see and do as primarily a ski resort, but after exploring the town and finding traditional restaurants you need to get out and about. The mountains around are wonderful explored by car up as far as you can then maybe a... More

Came on a ski holiday with my girlfriend, she was a complete beginner and booked in for the full weeks worth of lessons, I am a fairly experienced skier but thought I would book a few days lessons rather than ski on my own. The ski school seemed unorganised and not as professional as ones in other European destinations. On... More

It is the best place to go skiing if you are a beginner. It was mine and my partners first skiing holiday and we thought we would choose Bankso because it is cheap and good for beginners. The only downside to the trip was the excessive queues and extremely poor instructors there. We did beginners classes and the 2 instructors... More

Excellent skiing facilities, modern hotels, best local and international cousin, entertainment at a 1/2 price would cost you in the Alps. Also, keep in mind that Bansko is not only a great winter , but summer destination also. Claiming , tracing , biking in Pirin mountain is unforgettable experience. The Mediterranean is an hour way by driving.

First day was great, layout etc is nice but slopes were poorly maintained after that, we went out every day even though the weather was poor in the middle of the week, it appeared to us that the pistes had not been groomed (for whatever reason benefit of the doubt and all that but you don't not groom for days...
