When you think of a traditional skiing break, you may not automatically focus your attention on Bulgaria, but you’d be a fool not to. While the more popular, better known resorts in Western Europe (such as France, Switzerland and Austria, for example) will be flooded with winter enthusiasts over the coming months, Bulgaria will still be relatively uncrowded.
The country’s popularity as a ski resort for the British masses will only increase, so make the most of its uncrowded slopes while you still can! With it being an alternative to the bigwig resorts, you can also expect excellent value for money, too.
As far as choosing a resort in Bulgaria, it all depends on what you wish to achieve from your skiing break. Beginners, intermediates and families will all feel right at home here, with some advanced skiing and off-piste opportunities available, too. Here’s a quick guide to its resorts.
Fun-filled and great value, what more can you ask for from a resort? With Borovets skiing with Neilson, you’d be in a perfect place to learn to ski – this part of the Rila Mountains provides some simply incredible groomed pistes, while the picturesque, pine forests and panoramic views will leave you in awe.
English speaking ski schools, great après ski facilities and superb value for money are the name of the game here – perfect for beginners and intermediates wanting to brush up on their skills.
As the biggest ski area in Bulgaria, with the use of hi-tech lifts that are arguably the best in Eastern Europe, Bansko is an all-round resort that has something for everyone.
With access to black and red runs, as well as the easier blue and nursery slopes, the Bansko resort is full of fun both on and off the piste. The après ski scene is great, too!
Consider Bulgaria for your skiing break for this 2013/14 season – you won’t be disappointed.
