FRIENDLY, HELPFUL COMPANY.
Feb 2020
Iveta and George and our instructors were all superb. They wanted to get everything right for us. Spent lots of time making sure we were happy with equipment and also changed stuff wihtout any fuss after a couple of days if needed. Instructors were great and the whole experience was wonderful. The ski school shop is very close to the gondola and great to be able to leave all equipment there and have it warm and ready for us in the morning. Thanks so much Iveta and George we had the most wonderful holidays. We will be definiely be back.

We used ski school George because of the reviews and honestly can say the service was brilliant. Iveta is patient and helpful. Then our girls had Zamfi as an instructor and he was so nice and patient with them. Will
Definitely use both again next year. ThanK u

Excellent ski school for equipment & lessons
Feb 2020 • Friends
I have no hesitation in recommending this ski school. It is close to the Gondola station on the 1st floor above other ski schools, opposite the traffic lights at the top of the town. Iveta is a warm helpful and extremely accommodating owner. Her husband George is quite the character. I had 6 hours 1:1 instruction and it was money well spent. Martin was a fantastic instructor with perfect English and was able to move me forward in learning very quickly to the next level. I thoroughly enjoyed learning with Ski School George and hiring from them was very professional. Thank you to a great family business.

Had a two hour lesson with Zamfi, to refresh on our first day back on skis since last year. Can't fault service from Ski School George in booking and Zamfi was excellent teacher. Very patient and clear on instructions and managed great help to all of us, especially with technique. Thank you Zamfi.

Lovely and Wlecoming

We arrived on the morning of our first day and the staff were very welcoming and chatty about what we needed to know about the slopes.
Fitted with the same warm cosy boots everyday which were heated to dry, as well as the same skis and poles.
Our 2 hour lesson really helped us settle into the slopes and had a lot of patience in teaching us to get better and better.
Would 100% recommend - and great distance from gondola to drop things off before a few drinks in the Happy End!

Brilliant instructor Svetly and amazing management
Mar 2019 • Couples
We had the pleasure of learning ski with Svetly - he managed to take us from never seeing a ski before to being able to do blue courses in just 2 hours a day for three days.
Svetly was always on time, very kind and thoughtful, knew exactly when and how to push us. We could not have wished for a better instructor!
George and Iveta are also some of the nicest people we've ever met, and it was a pleasure working with them!

Ski lessons Bansko and ski hire for the family
Feb 2019 • Family
1 minute from gondola and very friendly staff and instructors. After reading many reviews, Ski Geogre did not let us down for ski hire and lessons. We booked 4 days of lessons, 2 hours each for my daughters aged 10 and 13 who could ski and seperate lessons formy wife and son who had never skied before. Both instructors were good but Vasel who looked after my wife who was nervous was fantastic and helpped progress her and my son. He mad it interesting and took them away from the main section to help them learn. He was very patient and looked afterthem both.They take the time to help and support and fully recommend them over some of the bigger companies.

Tip for missing the gondola queues
1) get there by 7.45am otherwise you will miss your 9am lessons
2) when coming from car park, join right hand queue as faster if both queues look the same
3) pay 10lev each and get a taxi
4) Drive up to one of the car parks by the top gondola station. If car park 1 is full, you can park in 2 or 3 and jump on ski run 1 right at the end, which you can ski down straight into the top section.

Super friendly ski school and hire
Feb 2019 • Family
If you’re In Bansko, want an English speaking friendly school and / or good quality kit hire then this is your place.

Our two little tots (3 and 6) loved their instructors. Our kit was good and all at a fair price. Genuinely family run business which means they actually want you to have a good time, happy to swap your gear, let you leave stuff at the shop and all round nice folk with good English. Call them ahead to book lessons.

Ps - phone ahead and talk about the gondola - if you’ve never been to Bansko then the queue can be horrific but George’s can advise of VIP passes and shuttles - saved our holiday!

Fantastic ski lessons and equipment hire

Could not recommend Ski School George highly enough. Zamfi, our instructor, was fantastic - incredibly patient and supportive and all the staff in the hire shop were friendly and attentive. I would definitely recommend their services.

Just what you need
Dec 2018
We where in bansko for 7 days, we booked ski lessons the first two days and equipment for the whole trip. Service was efficient and with a smile. We needed to change my pair of boots and they where extremely helpful with that. They also changed my girlfriends skis as she felt they where not easy enough to clip in.

Our instructor knew good English and was there on time. He was very helpful and taught us well. We went from total beginners to finishing on the black slope the final day.

The location of the shop is also good. It is a 1 minute walk to the gondola. So carrying the heavy skis and walking in the uncomfortable ski boots is not a problem since its so close to end of ski road and the Gondola lift.

Highly Reccomend and very well priced
