The town of Bansko lies on the northern slopes of the Pirin mountain in the south west of Bulgaria. Old and new architectural styles mix together and there are some excellent skiing and snowboarding opportunities in this, the largest of the country’s ski resorts. There has been considerable investment in recent years, which has resulted in several new hotels and resort facilities and a number of new lifts. Accommodation is located in Bansko itself and at the foot of the lift network.
