The male staff is friendly, the main female person is unpleasant.They are not professional. We rented almost new ski boots, but the next day the old ones were waiting for us.They gave our boots to someone else and offered us the old ones.

Knowledgeable, helpful and Friendly - just what you need when renting ski equipment and booking lessons. We had a new skier who was 80 years old and Totem provided an instructor for a private session who was, patient, understanding and a good teacher. Cannot recommend Totem highly enough, book with them and you will be in good hands.

I and my brother in law both purchased ski boots from this very professional ski shop and hire centre. We had previously visited a couple of other establishments in Bansko but it was obvious staff in those shops were not ski enthusiasts, and trained in boot fitting. We are so glad we went to the TOTEM ski centre. Thankyou to Vesi and Shishman for looking after us and giving us a great deal on the right boots for us. To all you ski enthusiasts, we could not recommend you go anywhere else but to TOTEM Ski Centre.

All I can say about Totem Ski Center in Bansko is that in my opinion it is the best place in town for taking ski lessons /they do snowboard lessons too and also have a very wide range of great equipment for rent/. It was recommended to us by friends and me and my husband trusted them with our 5 kids for 2 years now /not in a row/ and we are really happy with the results and the progress we witnessed as regards to the improvement of the ski skills of our girls.Two of the girls /4 and 5 years old/ did their first steps in skiing with Rami and the others /7, 9 and 11 years old/ took lessons with Matey. Both instructors were fun, patient and very dedicated, we will look for them again in the future for sure. I can also personally recommend Dani and Kamen with whom three of the girls met two years ago.Last but not least is that at Totem Ski Center in Bansko we met a great attitude and  perfect organisation according to our specific needs. Strongly recommend! And big time thanks, Chongi!

This small shop is not as fancy as others in Bansko, but if you are looking to buy from someone who knows what they are doing, thats the place for you. Bought ski boots for my 19 year old son. The whole process was very professional from start to end.We came back after a day skiing for adjustments. The owner identified the problem in a flash. The next day we came back for a final touch and the boots fit perfectly.Very much recommended.

I have been using the services of Totem Ski Center and have been amazed at the ever smiling and friendly team! Everyone is taking care of the students and customers, and they make you feel like you're part of the family.The quality of the ski and snowboard teaching is really high quality. Within one session I was able to convert to parallel skiing entirely and the lesson techniques have stuck with me so far. The teachers are your friends on the slopes - always saying hi even if we're not skiing together at the time :)Finally, I also bought some ski boots at their shop, and the help and guidance on choosing and fitting my new Head Raptors have been more than I could ask for. Thank you to the whole team!

Thank you so much to totem ski centre. Our boys had Danny kadeava as their teacher and what can I say, she was brilliant. The boys loved her and progressed so quickly under her guidance. First lesson they managed a blue run….amazing! I would thoroughly recommend her on to anyone. My youngest also had a lesson with another Danny ( a guy this time) who was also great and Oscar came on so quickly. He was really encouraging and fun after my son was a little nervous being only 5. The company is great, communication was quick and the lessons out weigh any others I saw in bansko. Much better than large group lessons. We will be back.

Look no further! I can highly recommend Totem private ski lessons — you’re placed with incredible instructors who are passionate about their craft, and it’s all backed by a great customer service team. Unlike with other schools, with Totem I was able to reserve/pay online, and they quickly texted me details of where to meet and a photo of my instructor. I had two hour and four hour lessons, all with great timings… though frankly the time just flew by! I felt like my technique seriously improved, and I was able to have loads more fun on the days I wasn’t in a lesson.Also, I was on a large ski trip with friends who all tried to take lessons with another ski school (Ski Mania) and, between Ski Mania’s bizarre class times (a four hour break halfway through a four-hour private lesson?!), confusing payment system, and checked-out teachers, my friends’ experiences ranged from underwhelmed to bitterly disappointed. Thank goodness Totem managed to squeeze in four of those friends — both skiers and snowboarders — at the last minute, saving the trip after all!

Best location possible! Shop is right by the side of the slope so there's absolutely ZERO walking in ski boots! Ski-in ski-out! The staff is really friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. After trying multiple locations in the area, this is the only shop I'll ever go to for my ski rentals from now on.

Great place, excellent service! Purchased skis from the shop. The staff was friendly and patient, providing valuable advice in selecting the right equipment for us. They also let us test a number of models, before we settled on the one we liked. We also took a few hours with Chongi, one of their ski instructors, who showed us some cool tricks and helped us feel even better on the slopes. Overall, great experience. Recommend both the shop and the ski school, they know their stuff.

Great experience with TOTEM Ski Center Bansko, february 2021 !My first time skiing in Bansko, also for my all family! We had 3 great TOTEM instructors for 8 days! One instructor, Kamen, for me, one instructor, Victoria, for our girls 8 and 6 yr old, and one instructor for my wife an for Rebeca, our girl 10 yr old .
