Full review

We have been coming here for the last three years and have witnessed the resort becoming more and more over crowded. Today we waited over 4 hours in a queue to get up the mountain and had to give up through hunger, thirst, needing the loo and tiredness. It was unbelievable, utter chaos. The number of holiday makers piling into the resort is way more than the facilities can handle. There is only one gondola and it is slow and out dated. Mini buses have been laid on to relieve the pressure but there are not enough of them and the only route up the mountain fast becomes jammed with people in cars trying to bypass the queuing problem. Bansko may be inexpensive but it is a total waste of money to pay 340 legs for a 6 day pass if cannot reach the slopes to ski. Pay more and go somewhere where you can get to ski. If you do manage to get up the mounrain and want a lesson you will then spend 50 minutes of your hours lesson queuing for the button lift. All in all very, very frustrating.

Bansko - No new snow since last weekend. This week was sunny and worm so the snow kind of started to melt on the lower parts but it is still ok to ride. At the very top of the resort there are some areas with rock and grass. Waiting for gondola is tedious  - © anonymous
