Borovets is the oldest ski resort in Bulgaria. It is also the most popular and the reasons for this are plain to see. Lying at an altitude of thirteen hundred metres amid forested hills; framed by magnificent vistas of the Rila Mountains; located at the foot of the highest mountain, Mount Musala; Borovets is lies indeed in an enviable position. The resort has a good snow record with snow cannons covering its six most popular runs. It your budget is tight, a cheap Borovets ski & snowboard holiday may be just the ticket as Bulgaria's ski resorts are much cheaper than an equivalent resort in the more fashionable areas of Europe.
Low cost Borovets ski & board holidays have wide appeal as the fifty-eight kilometres of runs cater for all levels of proficiency. The resort is particularly popular with families as there are creche facilities from six months and ski kindergarten from the age of four. The ski schools here have a great reputation and novices will soon graduate from the nursery slopes to face more challenging terrain. Intermediate skiers have a good number of broad runs which are also great for boarders. The Yastrebets and the Markoudjit areas are particularly good as is the Musala basin. The longest run is twelve kilometres. Advanced skiers can enjoy the more difficult reds and the World Cup competition run. There are also great opportunities for off-piste skiing. Just remember to take a mountain guide. Four runs are illuminated for night skiing. A separate pass is necessary for this option.
The standard of accommodation, whether it be hotel, apartment or chalet, is very good and service is excellent. Restaurants serve a wide variety of local and international cuisine at very affordable prices. The apres ski scene is a lively affair with bars, discos and clubs providing a party atmosphere. Recreational activities include night skiing, sleigh riding and snow-mobiling.
