Winter Resort

Bansko is officially the number 1 winter resort for the Balkans offering  challenging runs, off piste adventures and when you’re done on the slopes, there’s loads more to do in the old town and the brand new resort centre.

The winter seasons start mid December and runs through to mid April, making it a long season (around 120 days) with regular fresh snow downfalls.

On top of skiing and boarding, you can enjoy paragliding, snow-mobiles, skidoos, ice skating and snow trekking.

When it’s time to kick back and relax, within minutes of Bansko there are amazing natural hot springs, Hot water above bath temperature flows straight from deep down inside the earth straight to natural rock pools.

Winter in Bansko…awesome.
