Bansko snow

Banderishka Poliana, Top of gondola.

The Bansko gondola lift and all possible other lifts will remain open until 12th April 2015, as per Ulen say this decision has been helped by the large snowfalls of over 1.5 metres in the main ski domain. Too right; it is wonderful conditions right now.

Read on for my weather forecast…


But will the snow remain?

More snow will fall today and tomorrow 14th March. I expect around another 5cm higher up.

Well impossible to be 100% sure right now. The cloud will clear for Sunday 15th March. Expect mainly clear skies for the whole week commencing the 16th March.

It will be simply amazing.

    Hi lance.
    Great to hear that the end of season will be as late as possible.
    How are the pistes holding up?
    More importantly (almost) what about the bars and restaurants, have they started to wind down yet?
    Either way im sure there will be plenty to frequent when I arrive next saturday.

    cant wait!!

      Hi Phil,

      All good for the time of year 🙂 In fact incredibly snow filled. Melting below Banderishka Polinana now. More snow higher up this week. I think there will not be a problem for some very nice conditions this weekend and until the end of the season on the 12th April
