I was in the new uber metrolpolis of Bansko this weekend and after a year barely recognised the place. The level of construction is truly frightening, but they have resurfaced the road leading to the lift and are busy adding to the number 2 ski road. I don't think they are cutting any new runs yet.
This year will be the last good year for a while - if all these apartments fill up next year they will need both more runs and a new gondola. The road to the town (from Simitli) is being renovated and there is a new waste water plant for Razlog.
Its both terribly exciting and terribly worrying at the same time - the old Bansko (the one they always quote as being quaint and 'time forgotten') is dead and gone, replaced by gaudy shops and the tat of Borovets. But the future, ahh the future could be wonderful.....
I'd wait and see what and where the additional infrastructure investments go and follow them. Bansko is full to bursting.
next week I go to Pamporovo.
BTW, the rate at even my 'comfortable and functional' accommodation is 10 euro per person per night for the season.
