Bansko Ski Runs

Today Bansko is a modern ski-resort but still keeps the charm of past times in its Old Quarter.

Bansko offers an entire net of totally 14 pistes, making the general length of marked ski-runs, including ski-roads 65 km.
There is a new 7 kilometers long lit ski-road between Banderishka polyana and Bansko. Night skiing is available for everyone from 18, 30 until 21, 30. Snowboarders will surely enjoy the so called fun-park, which offers the option to ski over artificial bumps and jumps or build such on their own. There is a half-pipe which offers to both skiers and snowboarders a great arena to practice their latest tricks.
Absolutely great news is the fact that almost 80% of the slopes are covered by snow cannons. This provide a really good snow cover during the whole winter season.
