About Bansko

Bulgaria and Bansko


Lucky Bansko Complex is situated in the town of Bansko, at the foot of Mount Pirin.

Bansko is 160 km south of the Bulgarian capital Sofia, about a two hour drive from Sofia Airport, with 120 km of motorway for part of the distance, as well as, at 150 km from the Greek sea resort Kavala.

Pirin is a distinctly Alpine type of mountain.

Its ski runs provide excellent conditions for both professional and amateur skiers. A multi functional web of ski lifts and draglifts has been built here using innovative technology. The ski runs are fitted out with security facilities and are excellently maintained.

Snow cover lasts from November until May, and there is the additional advantage of snow cannon that can be used during the winter season.

During the winter snowfall is plentiful, creating lasting snow cover with a thickness of 3 metres. In January, the coldest month of the year, the average air temperature is minus 1.9 C.

In recent years, Bansko has become as a leading ski resort in Bulgaria, attracting an increasing number of holiday-makers from foreign countries.

It is not a surprise that the Financial Times recently defined Bansko as the best ski resort in Eastern Europe, surpassing two other first-class winter holiday spots in the country, Pamporovo and Borovets, in terms of number, design and equipment of ski runs.

This evaluation was made after Bansko took in the largest amount of investment, over EUR 40 million, in preparation for the ski season for the third year running.
