A two station Gondola gives access to ski runs at Chalin Valog (as does the ski run back to Bansko) and the upper slopes where a variety of state of the art ski lifts whisk you to a height of over 2500 metres. It is also possible to ski all the way down to the Gondola, a ski run of 16km from the summit! There is reliable snow cover for up to 5 months of the year and the resort is equipped with numerous snow canons to ensure optimum skiing conditions throughout the season.
There is great skiing, snowboarding as well as Extreme Skiing, paragliding and helicopter trips at Bansko, and there is no doubt that Bansko is now the best and most modern ski centre in Bulgaria having the best snow record and the longest ski season (15th Dec - 15th May) of all the Bulgarian ski resorts. The total length of marked pistes is over 70km. There are 44 Snow Cannons which cover most of the slopes and extend the ski season.
