Welcome to our weekly snow report from Bansko. The resort is gradually getting busier, especially with all the preparations for the Audi FIS Ski World Cup Bansko 2024, happening this weekend – 10.02-11.02.2024.
Snow and Slopes
As some of you may know, Bansko ski resort is a regular host of FIS World Cup events.
This year the dates are 10th (GS) and 11th (SL) of February.
Due to the event, slopes Ulen, Stara Pista, Todorka and of course – Tomba slope, will be closed up until the 11th of February. Ski road 2 and Tsyrna Mogila remain closed as well.
All other slopes are open and working in pretty good conditions, despite the spring-like weather we had over the past few days.
Lifts and Queues
All lifts are running except for Detska Kotva, Stara Kotva, Tsyrna Mogila.
There were no queues on the lifts, in fact there were almost no people on the slopes, not only in the morning, but for the whole day.
The morning wait at the Gondola Start station was about 30 to 40 min.
But all this is about to change over the weekend and for the next week, as the half term break starts Monday (12.02). So, be prepared and get to the Gondola start station (down in Bansko city) as early as you can. We recommend you to be at the line no later than 07:50 am.
We have written many blog articles over the years on how to survive the Gondola queue in Bansko, so here’s a link to one of them – “How to survive the Gondola Queue in Bansko” for those of you who are coming for the first time in the resort.
New snow of around 2.8cm (1.1 in) in Bansko is expected on Sunday 11th after 2 PM. As snowfall will be moderate on Sunday, it is expected to be heavier on Monday (12.02) morning and Tuesday.
Temperatures will be below freezing (max -2°C on Monday afternoon, min -4°C on Tuesday night). Wind will be generally light.
