    Ski in 3 days
    Method Ski are a very professional outfit. Great instructors with a very good command of English and friendly with Kids. My 9yr old had very minimal experience and after three days was able to ski on a Blue slope.

    Brilliant Ski Hire and Lessons
    What a great team we hired all our kit from the boys and they were brilliant. Nothing was too much hassle. My little girl had a week of lessons with Pip and she is still talking about her like she is a best friend! An amazing teacher for young-ones.

I booked my daughters ski equipment hire and lessons through Method and were very pleased with the ease and price of the booking. Our 6 year old daughter had group lessons for the week with Maria. The group had six children in it, with age ranges of 6 to 8. They all had a brilliant time. The instructor, Maria was very patient and helpful and our child made a massive improvement during the week, to the point where she was able to go up in the chair lifts and ski all the way along the ski road. Very happy customer.

I've just took several lessons with Maria.
It was my first ski vacation, with zero ski experience, and only four days to learn.
With two hours per day, I could eventually do parallel turns, and even one red piste.

Maria insisted to comment on any small mistake again and again, and she kept explaining and fixing anything wrong I did with so much patience.
Who ever knows the Karate kid movie, Maria was my Mr. Miyagi.
She was focused on small things that might not seem significant for me at first, but eventually were the key points of the entire ski method.

Thank you Maria for turning it to an amazing vacation.
I'll come back next year to Bansko mostly because of you.

My girlfriend got an instructor here, and instead of staying with her until she was more confident, he just let her fall ON THE FIRST DAY.

This lead to an injury to her sacrum bone which caused pain for almost a month after we got back. Also ruined our vacation. Also we paid for 3 days of instructing, and she couldn't use the other two days, but we weren't reimbursed.

Very distracted instructors, can't rely on them.

However the staff that takes your money and gives you your equipment is very polite and is very nice and communicative. But you're not paying just for that. You're paying for an instructor to teach you how to snowboard.

Absolutely amazing service from start to finish , Fiona was prompt on the email and the team at the meeting point were friendly and efficient. I was a nervous beginner skier who had tried another instructor from another company but didn’t gel... the instructor at Method was first class... fresh back from maternity leave she put me at total ease and had me skiing and doing stuff I could only dream of!!! Most definitely the best bunch of instructors in Bansko

Been going to bansko for 9 years and used method for the 1st time this year.
The booking went smoothly and when we got there everything was ready for us.
Excellent service every day and very helpful
My girlfriend had a private lesson and this was the best she every had. She developed massively both in skill and confidence.
Only minor downside was the opening time was 8am. Luckily the gondola queue was never too big but open 15min early would mean getting to the gondola for opening
Highly recommended snow school will be booking with method again next season
Thanks method see you next year

Just got back from skiing in Bansko, had three private lessons with Milena and she was great. I started the week as a fairly confident skier and I was amazed at how much I improved after the lessons. I would recommend Milena and Method Snow School to anyone visiting Bansko.

My sister, her partner and I all had a 4 hour private lesson with Pip the instructor, I cannot recommend her enough! She helped us all so much and was happy to have a laugh with us too, she even recommended the best places to head to in the town, Morris bar!

We rented our skis from them too for the week, Boris was incredibly helpful and even fixed a gouge my partners own ski. He was also great with the local recommendations, he showed us we’re to get some authentic makitsa and which ski shop to go to after I ripped my salopettes trying to keep up with the cool kids 😂

I’ll definitely be going to METHOD on my next trip to Bansko.

Thank you folk for helping making this trip so enjoyable, see ya next time!

Awful snow school. Awful communication. Terrible experience from beginning to end.
Booked before we went, for 4 children (in 2 separate groups) and 2 adults. Lessons were awful - and dangerous! (One adult was taken from nursery slope one day, straight to snow Road which was 7.5km the next, despite vocalising safety concerns about lack of experience, and ended up falling and then not being able to ski for the rest of the holiday!)
Children were snapped at by instructors, for no reason other than because the instructors were simply bored of doing their job and wanted to go home. 2 of the children actually ended up crying and 1 refused to ski again for the rest of the holiday, after day 1!
Communication from Method themselves was appalling, despite us really trying to resolve issues from day 1.
Have emailed since our return to UK, and have again received no response!
What a waste of £945!
Save your money - there are LOADS of fantastic instructors available at the top of the mountain.
Terrible, terrible company!

Highly recommend Method ski school. just finished a week in Bansko and the lessons were perfect for my 6 year old. Only 5 in group. Her progress was fantastic and she loved it. Other ski schools can be much larger groups. Very professional set up and friendly service. Fiona was quick to respond to emails and accommodate our needs. Book in advance as spaces fill quickly esp during half term. Would have booked for us all but they were full. Definitely would book again, thanks all at Method!
