Bulgaria's first ski resort is home to some of the best-priced hotels in the country
Beginners and intermediates will love the wide, tree-lined slopes and English-speaking ski school
Famously inexpensive and entertaining après ski and nightlife scene, with a great range of restaurants
Simply put, Borovets is one of Europe’s top party hotspots on the slopes. And with great value hotels, ski schools and lift passes, it won’t break the bank.
Borovets is Bulgaria’s oldest, most famous and popular ski resort. It's situated on the northern slopes of Rila Mountain, below the Balkans’ highest peak of Musala. With all this beautiful scenery surrounding you, you’re guaranteed some great views while on the slopes. The village has a nice mix of hotels (the majority within easy walking distance of the lifts) as well as shops, bars and nightclubs. If you fancy a change of scenery for dinner, there are lots of great restaurants in town serving excellent local and international cuisine. Just watch out if you're toasting with the Bulgarian national drink, Rakia – it's pretty potent.
Borovets is a great place to learn to ski or snowboard and the ski school is excellent. The 200+ instructors – including many former professional skiers – will help hone and develop your skills until you feel confident to venture out on your own.
The 58km of skiing in Borovets is spread across three distinct ski centres - all linked by lifts from the centre. The pistes carve their way through pine forests, so there's good visibility even on heavy snow days. Sitnyakovo Central ski centre, right above the town, is the largest sector – with a mix of gentle, winding slopes, progressive pistes and a couple of tricky downhills. Markudjik ski centre is your high altitude option, with skiing up to 2,550m, while Yastrebets is where you’ll find what many consider Borovets’ best slopes, including the FIS runs, as well as the Borosport Snow Park. The snow park has 3 lanes of kickers, boxes and rails of different sizes and difficulty. And you don't even have to head home when the sun goes down - night skiing is available every day from 6-9pm.
There’s been heavy investment in snow-making equipment, just in case mother nature isn't feeling generous. Over the past few years, Borovets has doubled the number of cannons available to cover over 60% of the ski area.
You can expect lively evenings around here; Borovets is well known for its nightlife, which is very easy on the wallet - a pint here can cost little more than a pound during happy hour. And the party continues into the early hours every night. If you want a more traditional night out, look for restaurants and taverns offering live folk music and Horo dancing.
