Borovets is on the northern slopes of the Rila Mountain, 72 km away from Sofia and just 126 km away from Plovdiv. It’s a fantastic Alpine resort providing amazing opportunities for the whole range of winter sports, including: ski-jumps, snow mobiling, cross-country, skiing, and snowboarding.
Borovets has hosted the World Cup skiing championships twice and its biathlon track is recognised to be of the best in the world. There are ski runs for all abilities, whether a beginner, intermediate or expert. The slopes and runs are maintained in perfect condition and are designated with international markings and multilingual signs. PERFECT for pushing the groom down the slopes in a Batman cape & mask.
For beginners this resort is a godsend. There are over 200 ski instructors working in Borovets and most of them speak English. This and some very good nursery slopes make Borovets an inexpensive and excellent place to learn how to ski. For the absolute beginner or the unsteady second-timer, the special ‘Learn to Ski’ pack is available all season for skiers and snowboarders.
Borovets is also perfect for intermediates & expert stag ski parties. The well-planned lift system includes the 3-mile, six-person Yastrebets gondola, which opens up a wealth of enjoyable runs, ranging from wide sunny boulevards in the Moussala basin, to scenic looping trails through the trees. Borovets is the ideal winter ski resort to improve your skiing and snowboarding ability. With fewer people on the slopes and fast-modern lifts, you’ll appreciate more time on the well groomed slopes.
We dedicate ourselves to stag skiing holidays in Bulgaria, but that doesn’t mean its not right for snowboarding. There is 23 miles of piste split into three areas with open pistes and some fun lines through the trees. For those who want to leave the ground there are plenty of natural hits & rollers and of course the man made Rotata half-pipe. Bulgaria is the hottest, or should we say the ‘coolest’ snowboard destination for ski stag weekends.
Like most snowboarders & skiers, you’ll love Borovets Après Ski. A plethora of bars, funky nightclubs and cheap beer.
