Bansko, is a town in southwestern Bulgaria, located at the foot of the Pirin Mountains. It is a popular ski resort for both European and Bulgarian tourists.
Bansko has become an international centre for winter and summer tourism. The mountain peaks near the town, the numerous lakes and the old pine woods make it a popular site for recreation.
Bulgaria's share in European winter tourism is steadily rising, and Bansko increasingly competes with resorts in France and Switzerland due to the comparative lower costs, while maintaining the same high quality.
Improvements to the infrastructure and organisation of the ski area on Todorka have been made annually to accommodate the rising number of tourists. As of 2010, the ski area has 75 km (47 miles) of ski runs, 27 lifts and drags, serving up to 24,500 persons per hour. The lift-served summit rises to an elevation of 2,600 m (8,500 ft) above sea level. The vertical drop is nearly 1,000 m (3,300 ft) to the base area at Banderishka Poliana, and over 1,600 m (5,200 ft) with the ski runs to town.
The nearby village of Banya, located only 5 km (3 miles) from the town, is known for its 27 thermal mineral springs. The ski area is very tightly controlled by some of the most restrictive development laws in Europe.
