Ski Bankso

Bankso is one of those resorts that frequently appears in those lists of top ski destinations you've never heard of. Well, you have now! Bankso has been awarded the prize for the Best New European Ski Resort. It's close to the borders of Greece and Macedonia and lies at the foot of the dramatic Pirin Mountains. Apparently, on a clear day, you can actually see the Aegean Sea - but we expect you'll be too busy skiing to stop long enough for that pleasure!

To reach the main mountain slopes, there's a fabulous gondola which carries you high above the trees for a spectacular ride. Nursery slopes can be found at the gondola mid-station and the ULEN ski school has a very good reputation, so Bankso is a perfect setting for beginners.

Higher up, there are more challenging runs for intermediates as well as a few adrenaline moments for advanced skiers and snowboarders down the massive Alberto Tomba black run. Skiing is fine and varied, with particularly good conditions above 2500m and there's a fun park to delight snowboarders and freestylers.

Après-ski Bankso

Bankso is an ancient town with new developments so you get the best of both worlds - traditional atmosphere and contemporary comfort, with lots of smart new accommodation. Wander along cobbled streets lined with stone buildings and drop into a mehana (the Bulgarian equivalent of a taverna) to toast yourself in front of a roaring fire, eat local Bulgarian food and have a drink or two. Visit quirky old shops, side by side with modern boutiques, chic wine bars and pizzerias. Try B4, The Lion or Amigos.

For non-skiing days, you could take a trip to the monastery at Rila, or pop across the border to Greece. If you want to stay in resort, there's an ice rink and a bowling alley or you could pamper yourself at one of the hotels' luxurious spas.

It's different in Bankso and it's great value for money, so why not let us arrange a skiing trip for you? You'll have a great holiday without breaking the bank. That's a GetSkiing promise.

Gary's Little Gems

"Ideal for beginners and early intermediates skiers and boarders who want the cheapest prices in European skiing. For those wanting a challenge, check out the black Alberta Tomba run from the top of Bansko."
