Getting from Sophia to Bankso

I'm traveling to Sophia from Istanbul in a month and I am looking to go snowboarding while in Bulgaria. I was initially planning on going to Mt. Vitosha but after reading about the other places, I thought it would be better to take an extra day and travel to Bankso.

Can someone please give me some current information on getting there from Sophia? Thanks!

The distance from Sofia to Bansko is ~150 km. aprox 2 hours by car.

From Sofia take E79 for Kulata, and turn left at Simitli.

The road is good, with some km of highway near Sofia.
