Borovets is the oldest ski resort in Bulgaria and was originally used exclusively by the King of Bulgaria. It used to be called Chamkoria (yes the Hotel Festa Chamkoria was named after this!), Chamkoria translates to Pine forest therefore those who enjoy tree lined skiing you are in for a treat.  Picturesque and photogenic this resort is set on the Northern slopes of the Rila Mountains and offers 58km of piste! (now you’ll know where the Hotel Rila gets their name too!) Borovets reminds me of a small French Alpes resort, which makes complete sense as the resort was styled on Les Arcs in the Savoie region of France! I was

Having previously been a French Alpes exclusive snowboarder, I had the opportunity to visit Bansko in March 2020 just before lockdown started, and boy was I impressed! I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the slopes in Bansko, well groomed, corduroy slopes met me and without a mogul in sight! There was a mixed standard of slopes too, not just blue runs but some good reds which were a good width too and to top it off I was also lucky enough to have sunshine too! For the Instagramable photos head to the ‘Bansko loves you ball’ on the piste! A few times throughout our stay we visited the Mountain restaurants as you do for
