Bansko Trail Map
The ski pistes are located in two main ski centres: Chalin Valog (1,100-1,600m) and Shilgarnika (1,700-2,500m). Bankso is favoured by beginners and intermediates. The nursery slopes at the top of the gondola are free from through traffic. Beginners can progress onto the long, gentle blue runs. Intermediates will find some good and varied red runs from the top. There is also one black piste for more advanced skiers. Snowboarders can try out tricks on the first snow park in the Balkans, complete with a half-pipe. Five kilometres of cross-country skiing is also available.
