Highlights

 
     

    Only at a 2-hour drive from Sofia, at the base of the Pirin mountains, the resort of Bansko offers amazing opportunities for skiers!

    Bansko is a little town with modern infrastructure, comparable with what we have in the Alps.

    Due to Bulgaria’s continental weather (cold winters, humidity coming from the Black Sea) there’s a great amount of high quality powder snow, which is very rare in the Western Alps.

    Summits at around 3000 m are a wonderful terrain for ski touring, with exciting vertical drops of up to 1000 m.

    Besides, the forest provides excellent shelter for off-piste tree-skiing.

    Since very few people go off-piste skiing in Bansko, most powder runs remain untouched for days. If you like to venture further, you will have the mountain only for yourself, with plenty of untracked powder snow!

    Furthermore, the reasonable prices in this country will allow us to stay at a superb 4-star hotel.

    After a 2-hour flight from London or Paris, we’ll meet in Sofia and take a 2-hour minibus transfer to Bansko. You can check the itinerary below for further details.

    Please contact me if you want to join me in Bansko. You will enjoy some of the best powder snow in Europe!
