Bansko is Bulgaria's premier ski resort, it has the best snow record and the longest ski season to be found in Bulgaria. The season typically lasts 5 months, from mid December to mid April. This is aided by 44 snow cannons which cover 80% of the slopes, making excellent skiing conditions. Bansko boasts 65km of marked pistes with exceptional off–piste and x-country skiing. The longest ski run is 16km, you can ski or snowboard from the top of Todorka mountain right down to the town. If you fancy skiing by moonlight, you can ski the last 7km on the lighted slope from Banderishka down to the town from 18.30 – 21.30.
Bansko offers skiing and snowboarding to all abilities, from beginners to the advanced. Instructors speak English and there is a kindergarten for the little ones. Lessons are available in the resort and are very reasonably priced.
Snowboarders are well catered for too, in the brand new Snow Park where you will find 90m x 16m half-pipes, an area to create your own jumps and snow towers. I believe these are unique to Bansko, and can only be described as giant needles coming out of the ground.
For those of you who want something even more daring, you will find Para-skiing, heli-skiing and ski-doos available at the resort.

Bansko is surrounded by the beautiful Pirin, Rila and Rhodope Mountains. The medieval town is beautifully preserved with cobbled streets and merchant's dwellings nestled in the shelter of high stone walls. The town is Bulgaria's most rapidly developing ski resort. It offers the combination of a modern ski resort, whilst still retaining all of its traditional charm. A wide variety of entertainment will appeal to all visitors, from quaint restaurants, (locally called Mexhanas), coffee shops, to clubs and discos. There are even Internet Cafes starting to open. Surrounding Bansko are several national parks. Rare flowers and birds (vultures, eagles and falcons) along with endangered animal species such as the red deer, wolves and bears can all be found here. The National Pirin Park lies south of Bansko and is included in the UNESCO list for cultural and natural sightseeing. The park spans over 27,400ha and is rich in lakes, waterfalls, caves, century-old trees and historic sites. Many rare plants species are protected within the park, including the near extinct Edelweiss.
Tthere are plenty of activities to suit everyone. Walking, hiking, cycling, white water rafting, rock climbing, horse riding, off road safari and fishing can all be organised and the ice rink is a 2min walk away.
