So why choose Bansko for a ski stag weekend?

Bansko has pros and cons for a ski stag weekend – check out our official verdict below.

1) Skiing for ALL abilities. For a short ski break Bansko has more than enough pisted terrain to satisfy all levels of skiers and boarders!

2) Night-life. Bansko has a superb night-life available for our ski stag parties. From authentic Bulgarian mountain taverns through to trendy bars and clubs. Of course the best time to party is during the 7 day / 6 nights the Horizon festival is on each year in March; hosting 100’s of International DJ’s 

3) Excellent Value. Bansko is still one of the cheapest ski resorts in Europe; probably only the Olympic ski resort in Borovets can rival it for exceptional value. 

4) More means More. Bansko like Borovets ski resort definitely offers more pound per punch than any other ski stag do resort in Europe. For example: 4 star hotel upgrades, twin rooms with balconies ‘as standard’, half board basis, FREE swimming pool access, walking distance to the Gondola & ski village, access to additional services such as spa; bowling, pool hall, panoram bar etc… 

5) Flights from the UK. You can fly to Sofia with Easyjet from Gatwick or Manchester; from Heathrow with British Airways and from Luton with Wizzair.  We always recommend booking your flights in advance to get the lowest fares!

So what’s the Verdict?

For us Bansko is the no.2 resort for ski stag weekends in Bulgaria. Borovets is still the mac daddy soprano for ski stag dos because the airport transfers are much faster, the night-life is superior and the ski runs are less busy.

The USP for Bansko is the Horizon festival… which is a great time to get the most out of the resort during a ski stag do.

So this section is about giving you the ‘inside track’ so to speak on the best ski stag night-life in Bansko… its a tough job but someone has to do: 

5 bars not to be missed – Our favourites include: The Queens pub; Bar Amigo; Pengiuns; Lovna Sreshta & Harry’s

Top 3 restaurants – A really nice French themed restaurant to try is Le Retro; for traditional Bulgarian cuisine try Baryakova Tavern & for the best mountain bar & restaurant check out restaurant ‘180 Degrees’; great views & vibe.

Best place for burger or steak – Got to be Smokey Mountain Bar & Grill [the name kind of gives it a way!]

TOP nightclub –  Amigos is still a great shout; as is Euphoria but our favourite all be it a pit glitzy is Flash Club. 

Places to avoid – Happy end is actually a nice trendy place to have a beer on the way down from the slopes but staff can be hit and miss…… sadly our experiences have been all too often not been a ‘happy ending’.   

Best looking Barmaids Yes this really is a category & one we do take seriously… & this year it goes to… drum roll please… ‘Bobby’ [female version of course] the stunning & wonderful manager at Pirin bar. For those of you old enough to remember Waynes World… ‘Bobby’ we salute you!

Top tip from a local Remember in Bulgaria when someone nods or shakes their head in Bulgaria it means the opposite to what we mean in the UK. This may save you during your ski stag weekend night-life adventures!
