This week we take a look at Borovets, Bulgaria’s most popular ski resort, although Bansko, its noisy neighbour, is gaining all the time!
Set in the Rila Mountains, Borovets was originally developed for Bulgarian royalty to use almost exclusively, but thankfully these days everyone can visit and enjoy this wonderful ski resort with its soaring mountain peaks, excellent skiing and a lively apres ski scene.
Located in the Rila Mountains in south west Bulgaria, the resort itself is 1320 metres above sea level (rising to 2560 metres at its highest point), has 58kms of ski runs, 5kms of advanced or black runs and the rest are for

If your partner is really good looking then it’s not really news when someone says to you ‘your partner is really good looking’ it’s not really news to you but hey, it makes you feel nice all the same! And that’s how we feel about the Ski Resorts in Bulgaria being named as one of Europe’s cheapest ski resorts, we know it, most skiers know it, but we like people to recognise it all the same!
We say all this because Eurochange, the holiday money people at most airports, have named Borovets as Europe’s cheapest ski resort. They compared the cost of things like a lift pass, accommodation, ski

Bansko and Borovets are a good choice for beginners, indeed many skiers have learnt to ski in these two resorts, let’s look at why?
The mountains of Bansko and Borovets are smaller than other neighbouring European countries. This makes things like ski packs (lessons, equipment and lift passes) cheaper as there is less mountains to cover and so the lift systems are smaller and less expensive. Being new to ski it’s likely that you won’t need to cover miles of piste so this alone makes Bulgaria the perfect choice for beginners!
