The snow sport activities start in December and end in mid April with ski pistes located in two main ski areas Chalin Valog (1100-1600 m) and Shiligarnika (1700-2500 m). They are approximately 10 km above the town on the northern slopes of the Pirin mountain, and are easily accessible via the new gondola lift which starts right in the heart of Bansko.
There are over 70 kilometers of piste marked area, a multitude of techno alpine snow cannons cover the slopes to top up the snow and improve the ski season. Bansko offers runs and tracks for all types of skiers and snowboards and will suit beginners, experienced and experts. For the expert skiers and boarders a vast amount of off piste area is begging to be explored, though we would always recommend taking a guide and the appropriate equipment. The fun park is equipped with boxes, rails and kickers with varying levels of difficulty. Competitions are often held in the snow park, including the Burton Pro-Amateur event.
Advanced abilities can enjoy the black & red runs with difficult sections and the extremely steep Tomba race track. The slopes range of red and blue runs are perfect for the intermediate and family skiers wishing to cruise around the mountain whilst enjoying the exercise and fresh air. Bansko welcomes beginners and has two areas dedicated to learners. At the top of the gondola the massive learner area has two gentle rope pulls and a button drag lift complete with children’s play area and cresh. The second beginner slope is in the Chalin Valog area and also has its own dedicated button drag lift.
