What The FAQ #13: When Will Bansko Winter Season 2018/19 Start?

Oct 22, 2018 No Comments by

The snow road after fresh powder last ski season.

When will the 2018/19 ski season start? It depends if there is early snow and cold temperatures. Then the ski season will start early. Last year it started on the 16th December. In 2016 it started 3rd December — take a look at my 2016 report here.

The winter season here in Bansko will officially open, I think, on Saturday 15th December 2018. I will update this post once I have confirmation from the resort Marketing Director Ivan Obreykov.

The season ends in mid April, date yet to be announced but last season ended on the 15th April 2017. I expect similar with 14th April or 21st April for 2019.

The early snow from 2016/17 ski season when we went to the top of the mountain on 30th November 2016. Look at the fine snow that fell that ensured, along with cold temperatures and 75% of runs covered by snow cannon, a great season. Last season 2017/18 was terrific with large falls of snow that extended the season until the end in mid April.

It was a beautiful day. With bright sunshine and nice cold -12 C temperatures. The snow depth at the top was 75 cm and at the top of the gondola station was 40cm. the piste machines were preparing the snow and the snow cannon were working flat out.
