Bansko Snow Conditions: Snowed In

Mar 21, 2009 2 Comments by

Bansko snow report: Web cams say it all. There is nearly one metre of snow in the town now. More than 2.5 metres up at Shiligarnika.  Even with a 4×4, traveling for many people is a major challenge.

But with more snow falling, the ski/board conditions of the season are in the making.

My advice; make sure you get to Bansko over the next three weeks. Got your own apartmnet? Then find cheapest flights with skyscanner to the left of this page.

With a likely snow cover in excess of three metres, plenty of good skiing is pretty much assured until the end of the season on 30th April – but fabulous conditions are virtually guaranteed now for the next ten days.

Don’t ski? Then a white snow covered winter scene awaits. Come for not only credit crunch friendly prices but for a fresh air and spa break.

Still many affordable restaurants, bars and clubs. Some surprisingly fun back country action, Bansko is winning over the sceptics this ski season. Tourist traps are there for the unwary, arrive armed with the latest BanskoBlog Guide.

Oh, and be sure to register. Check out what others have to say here after registering here.

Not sure where to stay? Apartments for rent are found on the accommodation page. As always here is a lowest price guarantee. Contact me for availability.

If you have just got back from Bansko, or are you snowed in? Please make your comments below, thank you.

    The snow in town is about 40-60cm
    Roads are being kept open by snowplows, but the sidestreets are a challenge.
    We found out that a great lunch at the 5star Kempinksi overlooking the Gondolas and beautful mountain view costs about the same as the crappy pizzas and burgers on the station. We had a lovely Ceasar Salad for 12lv and a spectacular real beef burger with cheese and loads of potato wedges for 16lv.
    Also had breakfast the other day at JJ Murphy’s where the food and beer is always good. Just like in Sofia 🙂
    We are very much enjoying your apartment Lance!

    Beer with your breakfast – at JJ Murphy’s? Well why not. You’re on holiday 😉
