Powder, few crowds and not a whiff of the Euro in sight (just yet anyway), Bansko is fast becoming one of the favourite for British bargain-hunting shredders.
It may not be a chocolate box resort, but there’s been over 80 million invested in lifts, facilities and the surrounding area, so the resort is definitely on the up. It doesn’t exactly rival the Espace Killy in terms of number of runs. However, there’s plenty of off piste to explore and you can still easily find fresh lines four days after a dump.
A major bonus is you can actually afford to eat out and have a pint or seven in Bansko’s local bars, as you shouldn’t have to spend more than £2 a pint.
