Bansko ski resort has been voted the best winter resort in Bulgaria and offers the longest ski run with fast modern lifts and over 80% slopes with snow cannons. Ski a continuous 16km on linked blue slopes from peak (altitude: 2600m) to base (Altitude 925m) and a total of 75km skiable area (not including off piste).
Everyday you will enjoy a lovely gondola ride up and over the wonderful forests (one of the most picturesque gondola rides we have been on). Sit back and relax taking in the scenic ride up to the base of the ski resort (Bunderishka Polyana) where you will find restaurant / bars nursery slopes and chair lifts up the mountain (highest altitude on chair lift is up to 2600m). Another option is to take a taxi (additional charge) or one of the free mini buses up the mountain road.
