Ski & Board Traventuria Doubles in Size for 2017/18


Over the past year and a half we’ve been working on expanding our floor space and finally, everything has come together for 2017/18! Ski & Board Traventuria Bansko has a second floor with its own entrance on Pirin street and we’re still at our great location, 100m away from the bottom gondola station. Other news is that we’ve received, yet again, Trip Advisor’s “Certificate of Excellence” and have updated a big part of our rental equipment.

Aditional Floor Space

Like we mentioned earlier, we’ve doubled in size with the addition of a second story to our rental shop. Downstairs remains mostly the same, but with extra room for equipment racks. We’ve added a second boot drying rack next to the extra ski and board racks that are new editions. To get upstairs you can either take the stairs, the elevator or enter directly through our entrance on Pirin street. On the second floor, you’ll find our storage lockers which are completely self-service. The idea behind this expansion was to separate the personal storage lockers from the equipment fitting area, thus to save time for our clients by minimalizing the need to be served by staff. Until now, if you wanted boot drying, you would need to get your boots from our staff and then leave your boots at the end of the day, every day. Since our new lockers have an integrated boot drying system, you only need to receive your equipment from our staff on your first day. Afterwards, you can skip entering the first floor and head directly to your storage locker to get all of your equipment.

New Personal Storage Lockers

The new lockers we’ve installed are quite an upgrade compared to a normal locker. The first big difference is the locking mechanism. To unlock your storage space, you must swipe your lift pass through the central card reader and your locker will unlock. By removing the traditional key and replacing it with your lift pass, that’s one less thing for you to worry about losing. Once you open your locker, you’ll notice the built-in boot drying system that can hold two pairs of boots and gloves. Each locker has room for two pairs of skis, boots, gloves and helmets, but a pair of children skis can also be fitted into it on top of that. Will still have our old lockers on the second floor, which can also be rented. You can select your type of locker during the booking procedure.

Ever since I started skiing at the age of 6, I knew that the mountains were where I wanted to be as much as possible. I enjoy most mostly big mountain skiing during the winter, but am happy just being out of the city.
