Not in the sky but on the hills – in a special time of year you a constellation of stars glows above Bansko. The leading winter resort in Bulgaria attracts former Olympic and World champions every year – the main piste of the ski zone was named after Alberto Tomba and the legendary Italian has been present at Banderishka Polyana, his compatriot Kristian Ghedina was invited as a special guest for the start of 2017-2018 season, the winner of 5 World Cups in Alpine skiing Marc Girardelli is a regular in Bulgaria – Bansko is the reason.
In the last decade, practically every winter Pirin mountain hosted a sports competition on the highest level. Several World Cup starts in Alpine skiing were managed successfully at Bansko and in the last few years, the focus turned to snowboarding where Bulgaria has a special reason to be proud due to the achievements of the World Cup holder Radoslav Yankov. And the hills where the brightest stars of the winter sports shine, are available all winter (except for the dates of the competitions, sure) for everyone else with Bansko holidays deals.
Celebrities prefer Bansko, so it must be expensive
Not really. Actually, for the last seven years, Bansko ski resort held the top for being the most affordable winter destination in Europe. Check this out for yourself to find a proof that budget-oriented ski holidays in Bansko are available even in the busiest time of the season. Well, big stars like the most famous footballer of Bulgaria – Hristo Stoichkov, would rather likely spend on a 5-star experience, but you don’t have to win the Ballon d’Or to be able to book a suite at the Pirin mountain resort.
And sometimes ski holidays Bansko offers to the guest might start from less than 270 GBP per person for a week if you happen to be lucky enough to grab the late special deals. Even on a regular basis, many options to save money exist there but spending less wouldn’t diminish the World Cup experience at the Bansko ski resort slopes.
