Surrounded by Pirin, Rila and Rhodopa mountains, the town of Bansko is located 925 metres above sea level, at the foot of the Pirin National Park, listed in the World Register of Natural Heritage.

The access to Bansko is convenient even in winter conditions. The distance to the nearest airport – the Sofia Airport - is 160 km, and is covered in just 2 hours by car thanks to the existence of a new motorway.
Bansko is the youngest and best-developed ski resort in Bulgaria. The skiing conditions are excellent, with great snow cover from mid-December to mid-May. In addition to this, the resort is equipped with many artificial snow cannons. The slopes offer runs and tracks for all types of skiers, from starters (many of which benefit from the superb ski schools) to experts, and the ski runs are maintained in excellent condition, befitting a resort that is applying for the 2014 Winter Olympics. At present, there are 14 pistes - extending 65km - including a 16 km run, plus cross country and excellent off-piste skiing.
