Chalet Chico Bansko Ski Package


There is no more comfortable way to discover the delights of Bansko ski resort in Bulgaria, than by staying at the catered Chalet Chico. A unique lodge, Chalet Chico is perfect for large groups wanting free roam of their very own chalet, or smaller groups wanting to mingle and meet new people. It’s a short stroll from Bansko’s lively bars, taverns, and shops on Pirin street. Run by one of Bansko’s oldest families, you’ll be made to feel right at home with all manner of homemade treats. For skiing, a complimentary shuttle service running morning and evening will whisk you to the gondola in just minutes.

Regarded as Bulgaria’s premier resort, Bansko has all the attributes of an attractive, affordable, world class ski holiday destination. The 2,746m summit of Todorka mountain looms precipitously over the town. Below it, streams the resort's 14 modern lifts, huge 1,540 metre skiable vertical, 75km of top-quality piste trails, extensive off-piste, vibrant après scene, and one of the longest ski runs in the world.

A Chalet Chico Bansko Ski Package includes all transfers, accommodation, breakfast, all-day hot drinks, 5 x two-course dinners with a beer or wine, daily shuttle to the ski lifts, logistics support & more, so you can relax and enjoy the trip from the moment you arrive at Sofia airport.

Getting to Sofia Airport, Transfers & Transport in Bansko


Ski packages start & finish with a transfer from/to Bulgaria's major airport in the capital Sofia. Sofia (SOF) international airport receives direct flights from most major (& numerous minor) European airports, plus a number of UK & Middle Eastern origins. The airport is a base for several budget airlines, making flight connections to Bulgaria incredibly affordable. A flight from London to Sofia takes about 3hr. Search & book flights to Sofia (SOF).

The airport is only 6 km from Sofia's compact city centre. If intending to spend a night or two exploring the city pre or post ski trip, search, and book Sofia accommodation.


The package includes airport transfers at any time, so you are not waiting at the airport on arrival or departure. On arrival, once you grab your luggage, you will be met and driven directly to Chalet Chico in Bansko. Other pick-up and drop-off points can include Sofia city hotels or even Borovets ski resort.

Transport in Bansko

Chalet Chico is only a few minutes’ walk from the centre of Bansko, so is close to all the shops restaurants & bars. The ski lifts are a little further, so there is a regular complimentary shuttle to & from the gondola in the morning and afternoon. There is option for ‘Queue Jump’ shuttle in the morning, whereby one pays a small amount to be dropped at the mid-mountain lifts, avoiding any potential lines at the gondola.

Refreshing juices, fresh coffee and a range of highlander teas are also provided.

All-day Drinks
Enjoy a fresh coffee or a choice of teas including our locally handpicked chai.

Evening Meals

For 2 nights, you will head into Bansko where you can get a delicious, home cooked evening meal and a beer from around €5. After years of tasty research the chalet staff have compiled a list of local restaurants, taverns and take outs that you will really love. The staff will always be happy to help organise a restaurant or arrange a simple food delivery for you to enjoy in the comfort of the chalet.

Your two-course evening meal kicks off with your chalet team preparing fresh daily dishes such as:
• Slow cooked and pressed pork belly, creamy mashed potatoes, rubin red wine jus with braised cabbage.
• Cauliflower cheese burgers, flatbreads, tomato salsa and a basil pesto. (V)
• Fire cooked mountain trout, with lemon baked crushed potatoes and creamy leeks.
• Red lentil and smoked aubergine moussaka with flatbreads. (V)

Dessert. If you still need some sweetness in your life, you can then indulge in one of our deserts such as sticky toffee pudding with a rich toffee sauce; beetroot and dark chocolate brownie served with homemade gelato; seasonal fruits crumble with lashings of homemade custard.

Note that the dishes listed are examples of what you can expect, it is not a confirmed menu and seasonal options may differ. If you arrive after 9pm on your first night, a lighter evening meal will be provided.


The Snomads feel good wine, beer and spirits are something that accompany tasty food perfectly. After years of research and some hard work in gathering local knowledge, they have created a network of generational winemakers, spirit distillers and craft beer artisans. A superb selection to savour and appreciate in the chalet includes:

Organic Wines
• Red - Mavrud Grape - Mavrud is deep, complex and the torch bearer of Bulgarian wine artisans.
• Red - Rubin Grape - Our personal favourite from the heart of the winemaking region known as the Thracian valley.
• Red - Cabernet Sauvignon Grape - From the foothills of the Rodopi mountains, a magnificent fruity Cabernet.
• White - Dimyat Grape - Dimyat is another Bulgarian grape which has been cultivated for many years. The wine is dry and develops flavour long after the last sip.
• Rose - Pamid Grape - The grape of the ancient Thracians. Recently discovered to be among the oldest ever cultivated vines worldwide. A truly unique Rose.

Craft Beers
The resort is fortunate to have a few locals who share a love of beer. The brewers in question are the Beer Brothers. Each season they hand pick a varied selection of Bulgarian craft beers. You can’t find these in any other chalets!

Snomads homemade Rakia. Double distilled over fire, the Snomads Rakia spirit is made from super sweet Muscat grapes. Pure and strong, one to enjoy after evening meals. You’ll sample a variety of these with evening meals at Chalet Chico.

Honesty Bar
All chalets contain an honesty bar with a selection of beer wine & spirits, but to experience a true taste of what’s available it is highly recommend you get involved with a now famous Snomads beer and wine tasting evening.
