Mark and Amy met in Tignes, France in 2004 whilst working together. They both shared their passion for the mountains and moved to Bansko, Bulgaria to follow their dream of setting up a chalet company. Now in their 13th year of business, their company, White Chalets, has now operated successfully in both Bulgaria and France. They married in 2011, had their first beautiful daughter Beatrix in 2013 and were blessed with their second daughter Daisy in 2015.


Bansko has the best snow record and the longest ski season in Bulgaria (1st Dec - mid April).


It has 75k of pistes and a fun park for both skiers and boarders sporting jumps and rails (not for the faint hearted!)


The ski slopes are groomed every night and snow cannons keep a fresh guaranteed layer of snow on the pistes throughout the season.


Brand new fast Doppelmayr lifts installed throughout the resort (imported from Austria).


New runs and new chair lifts are being added all the time.


The highest peak is 2900m with 'a ton of off piste' to explore amongst many tall Pine trees reminiscent of the Rockies.


There are also a great number of ski runs to suit both beginners and experts with a final run into town providing a gentle ski home at the end of the day.


There are a number of beginner slopes with 'magic carpet' style lifts and basic drags to get the beginners started.


We work with a certified Salomon ski school/hire shop with all English speaking staff and instructors where we can help organise group lessons or one on one tuition.
