“Magical week in Bansko”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

Just had my first ever weeks skiing with my 2 sons aged 13 and 15. We had a marvellous time over there. Skimania, opposite the gondola, provided all equipment plus 5 days 2-hour tuition for 740 Levs, which is £324! Ski passes were £330 and the return transfers from Sofia were £93. Furthermore, the 3 of us ate out like kings for £330!
We met an eclectic mix of people from all over Europe and beyond and the vibe was great. The only negative was the 45 mins to 1.5 hour wait for the gondola, but despite that only negative we can't wait to return next year.

“Nice tree lined skiing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

I had read some poor reviews on the lift queues - must say, we didn't use gondola up mountain until around 11 each morning and never really queued for much more than 15-20 minutes.

The skiing area isn't vast so not great for people wanting to ski loads of different runs but nice tree lined skiing.

The Bansko town is good and good nightlife - visit Amigos pub...

“Great facilities poor service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

The facilities for a ski/ snowboard lover are great. Unfortunately though there is a lack of great service and politeness. Overall it is worth the visit as you can find m,any thinks to do and there are alternatives to dine around

“Skiing in Bankso”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

I have just come back from a week skiing in Bansko with 11 friends. I am hooked! The trip was a bargain, half the price of any other ski resort I have been too. There was thick snow all week and some lovely sunny days.

Some of my friend’s hadn’t skied before but after only one lesson they found that there was still a lot of slopes that they could do.

I was worried about the gondola queues - but they were fine.

Can't wait to go again :-)

“Queues”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

Lift queues horrendous. Bansko was lovely and range great but you never knew each morning just how bad the queue would be.
