The Borovets ski resort in Bulgaria

Spanning three centuries of history, the wooded area of Borovets is a winter resort notable for its mountainous beauty.  73 kilometers from Sofia, Borovets has been the playground for Bulgaria's aristocracy and even features the ex King of Bulgaria's hunting lodge which is a tourist attraction accessible to visitors.  The resort is located at Mount Rila at an altitude of 1300 meters above sea level and the highest skiable peak is at 2550 meters at the Markudjik ski center. Musala, the highest point in the Balkans towers over Borovets at 2925 meters. The ski resort has a good track record of snow with operations usually starting in early December and winding up in April.  You can see the weather forecast for Borovets here.

The ski resort has three main areas catering to all levels of skiers and snowboarders.  Of note is the half kilometer fun park at the Yastrebetz-3 slope which is a great place to try out your trick skills.  Borovets claims bragging rights to some of the most interesting red slopes in Bulgaria while at the same time giving beginners excellent and extensive learning grounds.  Off piste is available but please do it when conditions are good and with the use a local guide.

Borosport, which runs the ski resort, does an outstanding job with conditioning the slopes and uses snow cannons in selected areas for better snow cover. 2016 marked a significant increase in the ski resort's artificial snow making capabilities with the number of snow guns more than doubling to 150 units.  Night skiing is now also possible in an increased number of slopes.

What you will appreciate greatly in Borovets are the snack and dining options available to skiers all over the resort.  The ski resort owners, to their credit, do not monopolize the food and beverage outlets and there is plenty of variety of restaurants and snack bars.  Prices are reasonable but as quality can vary do check the various options that you have.

Borovets is one of the most affordable ski centers in Europe, within an easy drive from Sofia's airport and with ski runs that are sure to please you.  We feel our ski and snowboard holiday packages to this resort are an excellent value for money to our customer base here in Cyprus.
