Visited Bansko in February 2018. Gavin at Method was really helpful and friendly on arrival. It was our first time skiing in Bansko and with kids. Great service re equipment hire and our kids ( 4 and 6) had private lessons with Ivo and could ski blue runs by the end of the week. Booked to go back in February 2019 and will be back in touch re lessons and hire!

Really rate the school and ski hire. Equipment perfect for our needs and we were measured up well.

We had three days of lessons about three years ago however we had forgotten everything.

We had three days of private lessons for the three of us ( two adults and one 10 year old) with Method and we went from zero ability to a blue run in that time. Everything was done to our pace and our instructor Borris was very patient but also pushed us all. Thank you and see you in 2019!

Can’t praise this school highly enough! They supported and nurtured us from the start. They cheered us through with smiles on their faces even when we mixed up the meeting point and wanted to give up. They exude a love for skiing that is infectious and make everything feel like a piece of cake. They got our 7 year old and even our 2 year old geared up a skiing! If they were a song it would be Bob Marley’s ‘Don’t worry bout a thing’!! Will be using them every year now.

Method snow school was recommended by a friend of mine and we’ll definitely be using them again. I had booked our lessons ( 5x2hr lessons for 3 children, 13, 12 and 10) and ski equipment hire through them a couple of months before our trip and was not disappointed by the service of the company. It’s also really close to gondola, so not much of a trek in ski gear.
Boris our instructor was great with the children, good English and focused on technique. The children, who hadn’t actually seen real snow before this holiday, let alone tried skiing, were confidently completing the blue runs by the end of the week.
9-11am lessons meant we had plenty of time on the snow after the lesson. Although an early start, on the one non lesson day of skiing we arrived at 1ish not realising that everything started closing down at 4pm.

Our party of 4 people booked 3 x 2 hour sessions directly with Method on arrival in Bansko and by doing it this way it worked out cheaper for ourselves. Our first session was taken by Maria who set us on the right track before Boris took over for the following two days - he was excellent, as was his English, his style was relaxed and we enjoyed his coaching immensely!

Booked our skis/poles/boots with them. English speaking. Really easy to book on line and very helpful. They took plenty of time to fit my husband with the right boots rather than just give him the first pair off the shelf.

My daughter had morning lessons in Bansko with Method. We booked last minute and they managed to squeeze her into a group. I was a bit nervous about this as she has only had private lessons before however she loved the lessons and really kept up with the other skiers. We were amazed to ski past the group on the second day and by the end of the week they skied from the top of the mountain. The first day was a bit hectic trying to get all the kids into the correct group but thats always the way at the beginning of ski school. The instructor was very lovely and Method are sending my daughter a certificate showing what she did so she can apply for her Scouts Skiing Badge as we forgot to ask when we were there,

We hired equipment and booked lessons with Method. Great location by the gondala and good quality instruction. Thanks all, we'll be back next year.

After looking at reviews we chose Method for private lessons for two beginners. Chris was incredibly helpful during the booking phase and when there. We had different instructors due to illness but highly rate our experience. Alex was great to get us going & teaching us the basics with kindness, patience and humour. Once we got the basics we both lost confidence and had Ivor (sorry if spelling is wrong) who was amazing. Trust is so important with an instructor & he quickly developed a rapport with us both to develop our confidence and competence. I felt I improved so much I booked an extra lesson with him just to get more comfortable on skis. This man is my new hero. So much compassion, humility, kindness, empathy and laughs got me through some very anxious days. I will Defo be back & hope to do more lessons with Ivor to continue my development.

Fabulously helpful, my son and I cause trouble where ever we go, we ski poleless, which caused a few problems in the shop as the use the poles to show the ski’s are in use.

Boots were dried every night, which makes the putting on of boots in the morning a much better experience.

You can leave your boots there over night which means no lugging heavy boots around.

Good on price. Good equipment
