Located at the foot of the Pirin Mountains in southwestern Bulgaria, Bansko is one of the country`s most popular ski resorts, and also one of the newest. The area was developed in the early 2000s as a winter vacation getaway featuring amenities that rival the chalets and hotels of the Swiss Alps. Bansko boasts nearly 50 miles of ski runs, and a chair lift takes vacationers from town up to the resort`s base at Banderishka Poliana. It is possible to ski for an entire mile from the summit of Mount Todorka (9,000 feet above sea level) to the town a mile below. You can come in winter or summer to pit yourself against nature, cascading through powder on a freestyle ski run or scrambling up a dirt track on a mountain bike.
