Bansko Ski Resort

With 70km of pistes, the first snow park in the Balkans, a variety of blue and red runs, and a black piste for experts, Bansko is especially attractive to beginners and intermediate skiers & snowboarders while also catering to expert skiers for short time periods such as a weekend.

As Bulgaria’s biggest ski resort, Bansko has everything you could ask for. Millions of euros of recent investment mean the resort has the most up-to-date facilities in the region. Pair that with the best snow record, the longest ski season in the country and a lively town centre with lively bars, discos, casinos, and traditional flare, then it’s no wonder Bansko is a choice destination for anyone looking for a good time.

Snowboarders will enjoy the extreme snow park replete with artificial bumps & jumps, a half-pipe and a ski-kindergarten for new skiers.

A unique highlight is Pirin National Park. Its dramatic peaks (Mt Vihren reaches 2915m), banks of graceful fir trees and rich variety of plants, birds, and animals (wolves and bears are known to roam) mean the views you get from Bansko’s pistes are second to none.
