The feeling of the purity and harmony would not be full if you don’t experience the natural might of Pirin Mountain. In the last 4 years over 40 million were invested in the ski resort, making it the fastest developing winter centre in East Europe. At the moment Bansko is a favourite place for all popular Bulgarian personalities, sportsmen and thousands of ski-fans, who keep coming here knowing they could get the best.

Today the ski area above Bansko has over 70 kilometres of ski runs. They are kept in perfect condition by 14 maintenance vehicles and the state-of the art snow system guarantees easy skiing for six months – from December to May.

The rental ski service is offering over 3000 ski pairs and over 1000 snowboards of the latest collection of Atomic and Salomon, and the staff is trained to fit you in accordance with your skills.

A modern lift Doppelmayr Gondola ropeway takes you to the 17 well groomed ski runs of the resort – right in the heart of Pirin Mountain – in minutes. That is where the true winter-tale begins. By the 14 super fast lifts with a total length of 26 kilometres you could reach any of the ski runs and there ski at will. Access is controlled by chip cards Ski Data.

No doubt that the “Tomba” run is the most attractive, but also the most difficult in the area. Its qualities were assesses by the godfather Alberto Tomba and the other stars – Franz Klammer, Rosi Mittermaier, Marc Girardelli, Hristo Stoychkov and the best Bulgarian skier Petar Popangelov. The excellent characteristics of “Tomba” run made it host a round of Europa Cup from FIS Calendar, all national ski and snowboard championships and also of the starts for the Balkan Cup. In 2007 Bansko hosted a lady’s GS race in alpine skiing from the calendar of Europa Cup Alpine Ski, which passed in perfect organisation. In 2008 Bansko will host the races in the most attractive discipline from the alpine skiing – two men downhill races from the calendar of FIS Europa Cup.
