Visitor Reviews of Bansko

David from United Kingdom writes:

Hi all,
Went skiing again in early February and the queues for the gondola were horrendous as usual and the slopes were all really crowded.
By the way, the button pull, at Chalin Valog, is out of action until next year because someone set fire to it for some reason.
Also, some of the restaurants are getting by the smoking laws by offering shisa pipes to customers. Not convinced that this is legal but we saw them being used in the Queens pub and we never went back there again.
Lets hope next year will be better.
