Location & area

The Ski area is excellent for beginners and intermediates. For snowboarders and the more advanced skiers there is challenging off piste. The Ulen Ski and Snowboard School or Bansko Sport offer good tuition, particularly for children. Lessons in a group of 2 to 4 people are about 5 EUR (3.50 GBP) per hour.
Bansko town is a UNESCO World Heritage site. It has narrow cobbled streets with stone houses, 120 cultural monuments, museums and permanent ethnographic exhibitions. In the centre is The Holy Trinity church with its 30 m high bell tower and clock, splendid murals and woodcarvings.

In summer hiking, climbing and horse riding are popular. There are well signed routes and hikers' chalets. Mountain bikes can be hired in order to explore this beautiful region. Local companies can organise trips in the mountains e.g. white water rafting, canoeing, paragliding. Also in summer the town hosts a week long jazz festival and other events.

For apr├Ęs ski the traditional Bansko tavern ("Mehana"), with their exceptional charm and style offer local atmosphere with their cuisine and good selection of Bulgarian wines. Most of the local "Mehanas" even offer live folk music. A visit or two to these is a must! Discos and night clubs work without time limit, and usually close early in the morning.

The Ian Woosnam Design Pirin Golf Holiday Club complex is two miles away and is due to open in 2007.

As the cost of living is very cheap in Bulgaria, your money will go several times further here than in skiing resorts in other parts of Europe.
