Pirin River Ski, Snowboard & Fun School

As with all other services, also with SKI & SNOWBOARD LESSONS, we are keeping to our principles:

  • high-quality service
  • excellent customer care & personalized service
  • great value for money

And as with all other services, in order to be able to keep to our standards of high-level of service, we have come to the conclusion that the only way is to do it - that is how the PIRIN RIVER SKI, SNOWBOARD & FUN SKI SCHOOL was born more than two years ago. 


  • highly professional
  • with long-time experience in this field
  • really nice and customer-oriented
  • having excellent results teaching both children and adults
  • English-speaking (some instructors speak also basic German, Russian, Romanian, Portuguese, Turkish and Hebrew).

IT IS REALLY THAT SIMPLE - you book your ski lesson(s) and we arrange everything perfectly for you, from the very beginning all the way to the last detail - we give you competent recommendations and advice as to what type of lessons to book, how many hours to book and when to start. We book the most appropriate instructor(s) for your needs and adjust the hours to your requirements. If you want group lessons, we arrange the best group appropriate to your level and your other requirements. We always try to make separate groups for children. When possible, our instructors pick you and/or your children up from the hotel to save you the hassle of where to meet them at the mountain (without any extra charge). During your stay we keep intensively in touch with the instructors, so that we can assist you with anything you might need and to make any adjustments you need to do.

You can benefit from our Amazing SKI PACKAGES with 30% discount for ski & snowboard lessons and rent or from our Let's ski and party like it's 2019! promotional 15% discount for ski & snowboard lessons, if you book them together with your reservation.

Based on our previous experience working with ski schools as well as on the feedback of our guests, we have developed a NEW IMPROVED SYSTEM OF SKI LESSONS which bring higher-quality service and better value for money for you than any other ski school in Bansko. Mainly because:

  • our ski lessons are better organised time-wise, making sure that you spend as much time as possible learning instead of queuing at the lifts
  • you will be in contact with your instructor, so that you do not lose time waiting for trying to locate your instructor
  • we have designed a highly effective system of small groups (up to 6 persons), composed of people with same level of skiing and age group, for those of you who want to combine skiing and socialising. Especially the children's group are a big success
  • we have kept the highly successful private groups for families and groups of friends who want to be together while learning
  • we offer individual lessons for one person or two persons, for those who want to learn on their own terms and with their own tempo
  • we have added four different types of VIP lessons, both individual and groups, for those of you who want to learn more intensively and spend the whole day learning. And of course for the parents who want to enjoy a carefree day on the slopes or in the spa while their children are learning with their instructors, being picked up from and brought back to the hotel.


However, at the moment, the lift company has not published prices for the ski instructors’ cards yet. As there is an expected change in this matter, at the moment it is difficult to predict either how many ski instructors we will take or to set the prices. We also understand that in the current situation a lot of clients prefer to book and pay for these services closer to the arrival. That is why we have decided to offer the ski lesson so far only in the form of request until we all have more information. We will then get back to you on first-come, first-served basis with an offer for lessons.
