Gondola lift Queue 22nd January 2018

A Bansko VIP fast lane lift pass, and how to buy one, is a question I am asked several times a day. And for good reason, the lift queues have been long for many of the days so far this ski season.

1.   Stay at the Kempinski, Premier, Regnum, The Grand hotel. These hotels will sell you a VIP pass.

2.  Purchase a package ski holiday including flight and hotel from Balkan holidays.

3.  Purchase a full season pass (20 day pass does not qualify).


Follow these tips top avoid the gondola lift queue:

1.  Get to gondola lift at 08:00 / early as possible.

2.  Go to gondola lift after midday.

3.  Look out for the free bus (from 09:00 until 12:00)

4.  Get a taxi up. 10 leva per person.

5.  Drive up in your own car. Parking fee 12lv. Be early

6.  Drive up in your own car / or take taxi up and buy lift pass at gondola lift cash desk



All of the above could change and could be inaccurate. I take no responsibility for the accuracy of the information. Remember this is Bulgaria and things can change without notice.
