Bansko - Bansko
Review provided by a previous Chaletfinder advertiser.
Summary
Bansko is listed as a UNESCO world heritage site with
remarkable medieval architecture combined with the
beautiful nature it makes a great holiday destination!
Description
Bansko has the best snow record and the longest ski
season in Bulgaria (1st Dec - mid April).
It has 75k of pistes and a fun park for both skiers
and boarders sporting jumps and rails (not for the
faint hearted!)
The ski slopes are groomed every night and snow
cannons keep a fresh guaranteed layer of snow on
the pistes throughout the season.
Brand new fast Doppelmayr lifts installed throughout
the resort (imported from Austria).
New runs and new chair lifts have been added in the
winter of 2010/11 reducing queues by half!
The highest peak is 2900m with 'a ton of off piste' to
explore amongst many tall pine trees reminiscent of
the Rockies.
There are also a great number of ski runs to suit
both beginners and experts with a final run into town
providing a gentle ski home at the end of the day.
There are a number of beginner slopes with 'magic
carpet' style lifts and basic drags to get the
beginners started.
