Bansko boasts the best snow record of all the Bulgarian resorts, but not leaving anything to chance, snow cannons cover 80% of the slopes.

The modern gondola and lift system ensures minimal queuing to give you extra time on the piste.
The Pirin Mountains have over 70km of north-facing terrain to suit all levels of skiers and snowboarders, including open piste, tree-line skiing and some excellent off-piste*.  The Fun Park is a favourite for the daring and the young-at-heart.
Bansko regularly plays host to international competitions throughout the winter season.

There is also plenty of après ski, whether you are looking for a relaxed evening or an energetic boogie in one of the local nightclubs.
*Check your travel insurance includes off-piste cover. A guide is highly recommended.
