SKI TOURING IN BANSKO
Bulgaria’s biggest winter resort – Bansko offers excellent conditions for ski touring. This exciting snow activity has become widely known during the past few years as it allows you to ski both on and off-piste and makes you more independent from using ski lifts. Touring skis are unique, because with them you can ski both downhill and uphill! While skiing downhill is similar to alpine skiing, uphill skiing requires special ‘skins’ which prevent you from sliding backwards. Skins are attached to the bottom of the skis, thus making climbing easier.

Skiing downhill with touring skis is similar to alpine skiing, so previous experience is not mandatory if you do ski. Climbing is more difficult to master and requires good physical condition. Our friendly staff will give you a short instruction on how to attach the skins during the equipment fitting.
