As one of the up and coming European countries offering skiing to the masses, Bulgaria is still considered to be a slightly alternative choice compared with the Western European resorts that continue to be high flyers with British skiers.
The Borovets ski resort can be found on the northern slopes of Rila and, with access to 58km of pisted runs, it provides ample opportunity for skiers to enjoy the slopes to the max.
Compared with many of the European ski resorts, you will find Borovets to offer excellent value for money and, as a perfect spot for beginners to hone their skills, would make an ideal resort for families who are new to the whole skiing shebang.
Considered by Neilson to be one of the top ten places to learn to ski, Borovets has plenty to offer to her visitors – both on and off the slopes. The great value ski packages and English-speaking ski schools are superb for beginners of all ages, while the bustling town provides plenty of opportunity for you to kick back and enjoy yourselves once your stint on the slopes is done.
International cuisine is available at the myriad of local bars and restaurants, without detracting from the authentic and rustic Bulgarian charm, including traditional horse and cart rides around the resort and beautifully picturesque pine forests that are an ideal backdrop for snapshots.
The popularity of this Bulgarian resort is continuing to grow, particularly with British holidaymakers who are learning about its existence and spreading the word. With incredible potential to compete with the bigwigs as time continues, families of all ages will feel very welcome here whilst being able to grasp the opportunity to develop their skiing aptitude with both poles.
Take a look at the quality accommodation and ski packages available in Borovets for the 2013/14 season and take the plunge into a resort that you may not have visited before – it’ll be worth it.
