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

We had fantastic days in the slopes of Bansko. The area is very nice and all the lifts are new. Only back draw is the queue to get up to the slopes. The cabin car is just too slow. But once up just fantastic!!

We booked this trip last minute and it was fantastic. Far better than I could have imagined. Slopes were brilliant. We went end of season so it was quieter. It's easy to book lessons if needed. And it's value for money. Would definitely come back...More

I flew here with my kids and we had an amazing time here. I would personally suggest that beginners not waste time with the ski schools, rather hire a private instructor. The reality is that he can teach you in one day more than the...More
