Lively après ski Bulgaria’s oldest resort 3 ski centres

In Borovets, Bulgaria’s oldest ski resort, you’ll find a ski destination with the ability to transform from a historic village steeped in culture by day, to a booming party capital by night. Ski on deep, fresh powder at the top of the Mount Musala before making your way back to the charming village, meandering through pine forests, and you’ll understand why Borovets keeps bringing people back.

In the charming village centre yo...
Young skiers will love Borokids Park, where the magic carpet, carousel can help them get to grips with the snow. The message to beginners from the lovely people at Borovets’ Chili Peppers bar is ‘more beer = less fear!’ however we’d highly advise against skiing under the influence, and instead suggest lessons with one of the local ski schools like Hunters and Yanakiev and the Sitnyakovo Royal Residence Ski Way’s wide, gentle slope for some cruisey confidence building.
