Exeter Travel - Ski - Bulgaria - Bansko

Set at the foot of the Pirin mountains, Bansko attractively combines old town charm with a modern ski centre on a par with Western European resorts. All skiing is accessed via a 20 minute gondola ride – at the top climb above the tree-line to enjoy lovely snow conditions over 2500 metres (over 8,200 ft). Beginners are well-cared for by the ULEN ski school, whilst intermediates have superb scope on the varied terrain. The Alberto Tomba black run and fun park will also keep more expert skiers and snowboarders well motivated. For après-ski relaxation most hotels provide excellent spa facilities whilst traditional tavernas, known as mehanas and located within the cobbled streets of the old town, are full of warm and lively atmosphere.

A rapidly expanding town, Bansko is 160km south of Bulgaria's capital, Sofia. It is dominated by Vihren, the highest mountain (2,915m) in the spectacular Pirin range, close to the Macedonian border. Three museums record Bansko's place in Bulgaria's history and the 500-year old church is a prominent feature. The ski pistes are divided between two main centres- Chalin Valog and Shiligarnika . Heliskiing is available for those confident enough to enjoy some of Banksos extensive off piste terrain. There is also 7 kilometres (4.3 miles) of illuminated piste for night skiing.
