The Blagoevgrad Province region

Bansko is a mountain resort in Bulgaria with a short hot summer, long winter and temperate spring and autumn. The skiing season starts in the middle of December and ends in mid-April.

The resort is an ideal base for both winter and summer visitors. It is the newest of the Bulgarian ski resorts and combines the qualities of an old Bulgarian town and a new ski resort, boasting many historic monuments and traditional museums. This region is also famous for its cuisine and folklore.

Over the last seven years, 200 million euros has been invested in Bansko, nearly 40 million euros in the ski facilities alone. This is reflected in the number and quality of ski lifts including an 8-man Doppelmayer Gondola cable car, five 4-seat lifts of the latest Doppelmayer models, one 3-seat lift by Poma, 6 drags and 10 baby drags. The easy access to all lifts is secured by chip-cards from SkiData.

There are 65 kilometers of marked ski runs and ski tracks, with more planned, which are regularly maintained by 12 Kassbohrer snow grooming machines. Excellent quality, crisp white snow is guaranteed from December until May by 40 TechnoAlpin snow cannons. The average temperature during January, the coldest month, is - 1.9°C and snow falls are generally abundant, providing a constant winter snow cover up to 2 metres thick.

In the summer visitors can enjoy walking, mountain biking, riding and white water rafting in the beauty of Pirin National park. An Ian Woosnam golf course is currently under construction 3km outside Bansko.


Bansko has the best state-of-the-art winter sport facilities in Bulgaria. It has an exclusive 16-kilometre uninterrupted ski run that starts from Todorka Peak at 2600 metres and ends at the newly built Gondola cable car on the outskirts of Bansko. The ski runs are equipped with artificial snow machines to guarantee perfect skiing conditions at all times.

In total, there are 17 pistes in Bansko, five 4-seat lifts, one 3-seat lift, 6 drags and 10 baby drags and a new gondola cable car is planned, ensuring that skiers from beginners to experts can enjoy the runs. The total length of marked ski runs is 65 km, allowing for up to 10,000 skiers a day. Ski passes are fitted with micro-chips which can be read even through clothing and rescue services include a short-code mobile number for skiers in trouble.

Skiers can also experience off-piste skiing or try out the biathlon, a mix of shooting and skiing popular with Bulgarians. Local tour operators also offer guided cross-country skiing and snowshoeing across the pine-clad lower slopes. In summer, climbers and hikers can use a network of alpine huts and many of the trails and roads that serve the ski resort are great for mountain biking.

A combination of the ski facilities and the attractions of Pirin national park make this a must visit resort.

Slopes: 930m to 2560m

Lifts: 23

Pistes: 65km - 35% blue, 40% red, 25% black

Bansko was voted Europe's most improved ski resort in the first Great Skiing and Snowboarding Guide 2006 awards by Daily Telegraph correspondent Peter Hardy. The guide covers the world's best ski areas, giving up-to-date and detailed information on lifts, passes and facilities as well as critical profiles of resorts, hotels and restaurants.

"Skying in Bansko"

Excellent and very warm apartment in Bansko, very close to the skiing gondola and also very close to the city centre, with beautiful restaurants and bars. Clean and tidy, my kids felt excellent in the apartment, fully equipped with all necessary for a comfortable stay. The fire place in the living room was a plus, very nice to sit in the evening by the fire tasting a red Bulgarian wine. It was our second consecutive visit, looking forward to the next skiing season in 2016.

"The best place to stay in Bansko"

We have been skiing in Bansko in the first week of February 2015 and stayed in Paul Graham' s Library complex. Very close to the center, very close to the cable car, with a good place to park the car . Inside everything was nicely arranged, very clean. Very warm atmosphere. Big rooms, big beds. Internet was working fine. I would definitely go next year for the third time in a row.

"Well located with plenty of room for a brilliant price, very helpful owner."

The library was a brilliant place to stay very spacious, the location was excellent and price was even better. Paul who I think owns the property was so so helpful gave us great contacts for transfers and for ski rental. We had one small problem with the shower but the people managing the property were really quick in coming over to sort out. If we were to go backto Bansko we would definitely try to stay there again.

"lovely place to stay in Bansko"

I recommend Library 1 to anyone going to Bansko on a ski holyday or any other time of the year with their friends or family. The House is new outside and inside, in a central but quiet location. We go to Bansko often, and I can say that this type of accommodation was more appropriate for us than to stay in a hotel. We had the liberty to stay late in bad and have a breakfast of our own choosing, same for supper. If you stay at a hotel in Bansko, you wouldn’t want to go outside, since the concept of spa tourism there is developed to keep the guest in the hotel. Than you miss the beautiful town of Bansko and the great restaurants that offer simply the greatest dishes. Not to mention the difference in the price you pay. Since the house is very spacious the kids had great time running around in the living area, or playing in the bedroom on the top floor. The fireplace was great, we’ve found a local seller of wood and used it for four days. And the communication with the owner was also something  We had some problems making the payment since Paypall does not offer services for Macedonia, but he was very patient and helpful in everyway.

"Great, great accommodation!"

Although May is between seasons, and Bansko is unpopulated, the Library Chalet gave us a very comfortable, warm and welcoming space. The apartment is well equipped, beautiful and optimal furnished, both downstairs and upstairs. We felt extremely well in it, gives you everything you need to feel good. Paul is an excellent interlocutor and gave us very useful information! In the future, for us a holiday in Bansko will be equal to the Library Chalet accommodation!

"Great Chalet for Family Holiday in Bansko."

Looking online for suitable acommodation for a family holiday in Bansko when you live in Australia can be confusing... but we picked the perfect chalet for our family reunion with adult children! Found "Library 1" from the choices on and were very impressed by the quick response from the owner to our enquiry. We chose "Library 1" because the owner was always quick to respond to our emails and was also extremely helpful with every facet of planning for our holiday, including suggestions regarding flights from UK, taxi services to Bansko from Sofia airport, ski hire, etc. The chalet was ideal. Extremely clean, modern and very comfortable. Plenty of good quality bedding, towels and appliances for all our needs. All needs thought of by the owners! Easy walking distance to great restaurants, bars, shops and ski hire places as well as the gondola station. Being a ground floor apartment was also great! Highly recommend this chalet for a fabulous Bansko holiday. Bansko managers of the property also brilliant. Everything about booking, staying and getting advice was easy!

"At last a quality snowboard trip on a budget!!!!"

Had a great time in Bansko staying at the "Library". it was clean, tidy, comfortable and it had a log fire. it was close enough to the main lift (about 10 mins walk), restaurants and bars without being too close that it was noisy either. Good communication from the owner throughout. He helped us out with all manner of things including tranfers, hire equiptment and even decent restaurants. the local brew shumensko wasnt bad either!!!! All our previous trips have been to the big French resorts where we have ended up spending an absolute bomb on a weeks trip so it was so refreshing to actually find a cracking little resort and decent accomodation for a spot on price.

"Excellent Ski Holiday!"

We had a great holiday and the location and comfort of the chalet really made the difference. We found communication with the owner extremely good and everything was exactly as described. The chalet is the perfect distance from the Gondola and just close enough to local bars, pubs and restaurants. We found the chalet to be clean, well equipped and homely - perfect for relaxing after a long day on the slopes. As it's a 2 storey house it also seemed to have the edge over apartments we had stayed in previously. We will definitely be looking to book our stay here again! Thanks!
