Bansko

More than 70km of marked ski runs and cross country tracks (longest ski run – 3,5km); altitude of the ski runs: 1100-2560m; main slopes exposure: 6 chair lifts (five 4-seats and one 3-seat), 1 gondola lift (8-seat); 7 drags and 10 baby drags; The total length of the wire equipment in the resort is 26 kilometres.

Mild winters with heavy snowfalls; the best snow record and the longest ski season (15 Dec - 15 May) of all Bulgarian ski resorts; snow cover on slopes normally exceeds 2m in winter.

Picturesque situation in a valley surrounded by Pirin, Rila and Rodopi Mountains.

Located in South-West Bulgaria (925m a.s.l.) at the foots of Pirin Mountains National Park, 180km from Sofia (2hrs40 mins by car from Sofia airport) and 210km from Plovdiv (3.5hrs by car from Plovdiv Airport).

*The excellent ski runs comply with the standards of FIS and are located in two main ski-centers – Chalin Valog (The peak’s hollow) (1100-1600 m. a.s.l.) and Shiligarnika (1700-2500 m. a.s.l.). They are situated at approximately 10 km distance away of the town and are easily accessible by the Gondola starting from Bansko.

*The total length of the pistes is about 70 km (some of them with safety net installations). Several tens of snow cannons maintain the snow coverage in perfect conditions when necessary, making the ski season last longer. Variety of many different inclines and types of snow offer the best opportunities for ski enthusiasts of all levels, from the absolute beginner to the extreme high performer. Some good off-piste riding is available but local knowledge is essential to avoid the hidden dangers. In addition to on-piste skiing, skiers and snowboarders are welcome to the fun park in the “Platoto” area which offers fans of the extreme winter sports the option to ski over present artificial bumps and jumps as well as to build those on their own.

*The ski runs are serviced by a number of chair lifts and drag lifts, all of which are cutting edge Doppelmayer ski lifts, including the 8-man Gondola and the four-chair lift with bubble shields to protect you from harsh weather conditions. Expect no queues for this and the coming seasons, for the easy hands-free access to all lifts is secured by SkiData chip-card ski passes that you never need to take out of your pocket, which is still a rare occurrence in many other resorts. There are several monitors broadcasting live the conditions of the upper parts of the lifts, preparing people of the weather expecting them a bit higher in the mountains.

*Last but not least, Bansko offers its guests a unique 16-kilometre uninterrupted skiing, starting from Todorka Peak at the highest point of the ski center, all the way to base station of the Gondola lift at the outskirts of town. The last 7 km of the slope are lighted, and the entire facility is equipped with artificial snow machines to ensure a great skiing experience even in warmer conditions

Bansko boasts more than 100 "Mehanas", most of them offering live music and folklore programs. When it comes to nightlife few resorts can compare with what Bansko offers. Discos, Karaoke bars and night clubs work without time limit, and usually close early in the morning.
