Borovec, Bulgaria

Borovec has got the lot and is probably  the number one ski resort in Bulgaria. It was Bulgaria’s first ski resort, dating from the 19th century when it was only known to an exclusive few - but now everyone has the opportunity to experience this fun-packed, snow filled spectacular destination! Set amidst the majestic forest-clad Rila Mountains, once a hunting ground for Bulgarian Kings, Borovets is now internationally renowned. There are lots of bars and cafes, and these along with the many clubs make aprés-ski a real attraction. Quite rightly, skiing is its prime concern and Borovets is justly popular with all grades of skiers, with a setting that’s near perfect. If you haven’t discovered this premier ski resort yet, you’re in for a treat! One of the most popular Bulgarian ski destinations has turned into an even better place to spend a winter holiday.

Over 2 km of slopes in the heart of the resort has been transformed by six new snow cannons, flood lights and music, so the skiing can go on even after the sun goes down. All this is open between 5.00 - 10.00 pm, so if you want a lie in, after the pub crawl the night before, you can still get a decent fun of skiing.*
If you don't want to participate in the evening entertainment on the slopes, there are special evening events, ski shows and carnivals organised for your enjoyment.
Another new 12 kilometres ski run “Mousalenska pateka” has been added to the existing 40 kilometres of total ski runs, connecting the “Markoudjik” and the “Borovets” ski areas. “Mousalenska pateka” is appropriate for the beginner and intermediate level skiers and snowboarders. More snow cannons have been added for season 2004/05 and visitors to the resort should expect further upgrades and improvements to the lift network for the next season, as the management
of the resort promises.
