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 Mountain
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!

Good Ski Instructors 
Many people learn to ski in Bulgaria and one of the reasons is that the ski instructors are used to teaching beginners and so they are patient. In some countries beginners can be seen as a bit of an inconvenience whereas in Bulgaria this is certainly not the case, you just blend in with all the other beginners and more experienced skiers. 

Our prices for skiing holidays to Bansko and Borovets offer great value for money. This coupled with the low cost of ski packs and extras such as lunch on the slopes makes Borovets and Bansko exceptional value for money. Why pay more than needed for your first trip! All this contributes to our skiing holidays being affordable and this encourages people to try skiing. 

Our deposit is only £70pp making it one of the lowest around, there’s nothing else to pay until 10 weeks before you travel and booking earlier makes sense as you can then spread the cost of your holiday too!

Here at Balkan Holidays we have something for every holiday maker, whether you like to be self-sufficient and book a self-catering holiday, book bed & breakfast so you can enjoy evening meals out in many of the fabulous restaurants in our resorts, or perhaps you prefer half board which is certainly the preferred option for our customers. 

Hotels and Apartments
Whether you prefer a luxury hotel, villas or great value three star hotels, we offer a wide choice of hotels and apartments to suit any requirement and budget. Some of the hotels we offer have swimming pools (ideal after a day on the slopes), some have spas or saunas, others are closer to resort centre, whereas for those who prefer to be further away from it all, we also offer accommodations in a quiet setting. 

So, there you have it, six reasons why Bansko and Borovets are a good choice to learn to ski. If you are thinking of learning to ski and booking a skiing holiday we hope this helps and we look forward to welcoming you to Bulgaria this ski season.
