The new multi-million Euro investment in the ski area has provided Bansko with one of the most advanced ski centres in Europe. The highlight of this being the direct 8 seater gondolas which carry skiers and snowboarders from the town, right up to the nursery slope. There is also a fun park and half-pipe available.
For the more athletic, there is 9 km of cross-country ski tracks.

The Bansko ski area offers its guests a unique 16-kilometer uninterrupted ski run, starting from Todorka Peak at the highest point, all the way to base station of the Gondola lift. The last 7 km of the slope are floodlit, and the entire run is equipped with artificial snow machines to ensure a great skiing experience even in warmer condition. You can even ski into the evenings on the last 7km from Banderishka Polyana down to the gondola station as this is floodlit between 18:30 and 21:30.
A 30 second stroll will take you into the Happy End bar opposite the gondola!

Bansko town is situated at 936m with the altitude of the ski runs at 1100-2560m. The marked ski runs are 70 km long and the slope exposure is north. There are 7 four chair lifts by Dopelmeyr, 6 drag lifts with the longest ski run of 16 km long, which runs from the upper Gondola station to the first Gondola station. The runs are roughly divided into the following levels: 35% beginners, 40% intermediate and 25% advanced.

The Gondola lift carries passengers from the outskirts of the town up to the ski runs but DONT get off the gondola when the doors first open at the first dro p off point, as this is just a short red run back into town! The main ski area is clear to see and takes about 25 minutes to reach.
Bansko is on the UNESCO List of World Heritage Sites for its natural beauty and is the gateway to the Pirin National Park, with access to spectacular mountains, waterfalls, glacial lakes and wildlife including Black Bear!

The old town centre has traditional Bulgarian stone-and-timber houses, open public squares, cobbled streets and winding roads. Worth visiting are the dark, peaceful Sveta Troitsa Church (ploshtad Vuzhrazhdane) with its 30m- (98ft-) high clock tower built in 1835, and the Icon Museum (ulitsa Yane Sandanski 3), which houses works by local 19th-century painters. The magnificent Rila Monastery can be visited in a day trip by car or bus.
