Bulgarian Skiing

I've never been skiing in my life, but I'd heard it's great, I'll never know. I've never really had the money to go, even in Bulgaria which is mean to be the cheapest in Europe. Looking at some of the resorts, they are spectacular, hence the inclusion of a resort in this Bulgarian Scrapbook. Getting the chance to ski must be great for those who can afford it.
Skiing in Bansko

The Bansko ski slopes are especially well suited for beginner and intermediate skiers. The gentle slopes of Todorin Vruh are great spot for novices, with long runs from the chair lift. They also give access to exceptional off-piste skiing and snowboarding opportunities. Intermediates can take the triple chair lift to the top of the peak and enjoy one of the downhill runs. The snow conditions in Bansko are good and there are rarely some queues even in the peak of the season. A multi-million Euro project has recently seen the installation of new lifts, including an eight-person gondola, adding to the popularity of the Bansko ski area. The Ski and Snowboard School offers top quality tuition, especially for children who are cared for at the Junior Ski Club.
