“Too many queues!”
Review of Ski Bansko

Ski Bansko
Reviewed February 17, 2013

On our first day we had to queue for an hour and a half for the gondola! The rest of the week we turned up there at 8.15 (it opens at 8.30) and still had to queue for half an hour, ski schools are given priority (there were hundreds of them) which i found really annoying as i had paid the same money for the use of the gondola as them! The runs are lovely, well groomed. The blue run all the way from the top down to the Sport Hotel was very picturesque and excellent for beginners but very busy when we went at half term, would not pick that week again. The locals are very rude and do not know what customer service is!! All in all we had a fantastic week at Bansko and would definately return there next year.

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.

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...

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

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 :-)
