Bansko is Bulgaria's # 1 ski resort, having the best and most modern ski centre of all Bulgarian ski resorts. During the recent years a multi-million euros investment in a brand new skiing area has been made by Yulen, the company which has the licence to run the skiing area of the resort. Bansko has the best snow record and the longest ski season (15 Dec - 15 May) of all Bulgarian ski resorts. During the last couple of years this resort is under a massive investment process with new hotels and resort facilities being under construction. A brand new resort area with super luxury hotels and holiday apartments is being developed just opposite the Gondola lift, which also makes Bansko the resort with the best hotels.
Bansko is the gateway to the Pirin mountain region and is certainly Bulgarias most up and coming ski resort, and one of the best for ski holidays in Bulgaria. It offers an irresistible combination of high mountains, ancient history and a modern infrastructure, and the Pirin Mountain National Park is on UNESCOs List of World Heritage Sites. Its diverse, newly renovated, wide tree-lined pistes, along with one of the most modern lift systems in Europe give you a wide variety of skiing for any age and level. Accommodation is modern and of a standard that you would expect to see in a much more expensive ski resort. There are a number of local shops in Bansko and a trip to the old town to experience the traditional Mehana is a must while on your ski holiday. All in all, Bansko offers a unique skiing, cultural and value for money winter ski holiday.
