Our suggestion for a great day in Bansko!

Here is our recipe for a great day on the Bansko ski slopes!

7:30am: A delicious chalet breakfast is waiting for you with freshly cooked eggs and porridge in addition of the continental breakfast! Your hosts will take care of feeding you well before you go skiing, making sure you are ready for a day on the slopes.

8:00am: It’s time to go – we will drive you to the Gondola station to beat the crowds to be the first on the slopes enjoying the fresh snow!

08:30am: Be amongst the first people on the mountain and enjoy the empty slopes and fresh morning sunshine. It’s our favourite time of the day!

10:00am: Stop for your hot chocolate break at the 180° Bar on the slopes, on run no.4!
You will debrief your first runs and vote for your favourite! In our opinion, no. 10 and no. 12 are the best because they are steep enough for keen skiers but not too difficult for beginners! They offer bumps and small detours around the trees, which is always fun as long as you remember to aim for the gaps!

12:30pm: We recommend you to have a lunch at the Bulgarian Tavern located on the run no.1. You’ll find delicious traditional food, a warm atmosphere and the best money for value on the slopes.

4:30pm: The 2nd part of your day begins with a fresh, cold and well deserved beer at Harry’s Bar which is also the meeting point for a lift back to Juniper Chalet if your legs need a break.

5:30pm: Enjoy the freshly baked cake in the chalet with a cup of tea!

7:30pm: Enjoy a yummy 3 course meal in the chalet prepared with care by your hosts and served with free flowing wine and beer.

9:00pm: Do you want more? Let’s do a Bar Crawl to see Bansko night life! You will always remember your holidays at Juniper Chalet… although, maybe not all of the bar crawl??
