Bansko records incredibly high season 2004- 2005. 400 000 tourists have visited the resort and this number is almost doubled as it was the previous season. The high tourism flow and the perspectives for the development of the resort were commented by the head of the Tourism Council in Bansko Ianka Rahova, the mayor of the municipal Alexander Kravarov and the director of the ski zone Ivan Obreikov. Alexander Kravarov: We welcomed more tourists and we are going to invest 9 more million for the reconstruction of streets and new roads. The past season is completely different from the previous one. Firstly- several new hotels were opened, which increased the number of beds in the resort and this made it possible to host 400 000 tourist compared to the 250 000 from the previous season. The second prerequisite which attracted twice as much tourists are the improvements in the ski zone. New ski pistes were opened from Jelezen most to Banderishka polyana, new lifts as well. The shooting ground on the biathlon tracks was completed. For the incoming season 2005- 2006 Our goal is to renovate the piste on Cerna Mogila with all of the necessary equipment. The concessionaire of the ski center- Ulen Joint stock company, this summer will work on the cultivation of all of the pistes, according the requirements of the ministry of environment and waters. The number of beds in the hotels will become more than 6000. The number of tourist will be even higher, because one should have in mind the so called vacation apartments which were sold. In the town the major works will be for the improvement of the infrastructure. The main streets have to be paved again. The streets with heavy traffic will be repaired- Glazne,Bulgaria, Patriarh Evtimii, Otets Paisii, Drama and Tsar Boris. The street from the starting lift station to the Strajite hotel will be covered with new asphalt and will have three roadways. A 6 kilometer ring road will be also constricted, which has to reduce the traffic in Bansko. The municipal also made agreements with Ulen concessionaire for the supply of mini- buses which will carry the local people and the guests of Bansko for free during the high periods around Christmas, New Year, and Students holiday. This would cause a rise of the price for the lift card with one BGN. A new bridge on Glazne River in the region of the starting lift station is another precaution for the problems with traffic in Bansko. Part of the investments for this project and for the ring road will be taken from all of the businessmen in the town. Each of them will give 2 BGN per square meter of the total built- up area in their construction site. The municipal has 9 million BGN for the recovery of the infrastructure of the town and for quittance for the owners of lands. The municipal also relies on investments through different programs. The ski zone will be enlarged in the region of Cerna mogila and Banderishka polyana. The municipal council of Bansko did not accept the proposal of Ulen for the construction of new pistes in the region of Damianishki Dial. We expect to start a new cabin lift from Bansko to the ski pistes for the next season. Almost 10 kilometers will be the new pistes and the equipment for the new 2005- 2006 season. Ianka Rahova: the fears that we wont be able to fill the hotels are useless. At the beginning of this season we were worried that we wont be able to fill the holes. It turned out that all that fuss was in vane. During the high periods the beds were still not enough and this is an index for a positive growth.

    Just came back from Sevlievo in Bulgaria. Drove up to Hotel Impulse in Uzana where I hired skis, boots and poles for myself and two children for just 17 levs for adult and 10 levs each child and used the hotel ski slope 5 levs each. Perfect for the kids first time as parking right at entrance to hotel and slope is 20m walk! Food in restaurant tasty and cheap. Perfect for beginners!

    WOW, thats all i can say about the previous week of my life. The snow conditions were amazing and the people were so friendly. The night life was always active and the rila hotel was especially fantastic. I loved the accommodation at the rila and i loved the way it is right on the slope. I wouldn't have changed a thing about the holiday and i would recommend this resort to everyone including beginners and experts. Overall, i had an amazing time!!!

    We just had a wonderful trip to Pamporovo. We were a group of 10 adults, and 3 small children (1 to 3 years old), who stayed at the Castle complex, in 4 apartments, for a week (7 days stay, 6 days skiing) Everything at the Castle was great, and the staff was very forthcoming and helpful in every way. The apartments were very practical, and equipped with all necessities. Not luxurious, but really good and adequate in size and layout. You should note though, that towels are not changed every day. Towels are not needed to bring to the spa area and treatments. The food at the Excalibur restaurant was typical for the area, and well prepared. The staff at the restaurant is also great. The Castle complex is situated 2-3 km. from Ski center 2 (Malina). It is of course easiest if you are driving, but there are shuttles from the hotel to the ski center and lift. Ski in-/out is possible at the backside of the complex. We had booked ski- and snowboard packages, and that worked out perfectly as well. The snowboard instructor was a true professional. Patient and very focused on making sure that all of us learned the moves, at our own individual pace. Everyone had a great time, and learned a lot. The area was perfect for us, as we are all beginners on snowboards. Had we been on skies, I suspect the terrain would not be challenging enough for an entire week. We can definitely recommend Pamporovo, and the Castle complex, and will be back next year.
