A great place to ski........


Bansko is the best ski resort in Eastern Europe. All the ski lifts are brand new and all very fast chairlifts or Gondolas. The skiing is both challenging for the experienced skier and great for the beginner and intermediate.

There are many mountain restaurants serving a variety of local cuisine. Bulgaria is host to the sunniest ski resorts in Europe and since they are further East than the Alps have colder conditions which generates better snow throughout the season.

They have invested heavily in snow cannons and with the freezing night time temperatures, snow is guaranteed throughout the season.
