Visitor Reviews of Bansko
Iulian from Romania writes:
If you are looking for decent groomed slopes, then don't come here. We were shocked when we arrived to the top (after we waited 45 minutes at the gondola bottom station), to see that all the slopes were full of bumps, moguls, etc..at 10:30 AM. The skiing experience offered in Bansko is a shame. Another issue is that the slopes are poorly marked.
The only positive thing is that they know to create a party atmosphere everywhere which attracts teenagers and young couples who stay on the slopes rather to drink, have fun and dance than to ski. We liked this positive vibe they created, but that's all. This was our first and last trip here!
