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.

Do you dream of skiing down the same mountains where Bulgarian Kings of old once hunted? Oh, right. Just us then. Well how about a ski holiday at a snip of the price you’d pay in France or Switzerland, with exhilarating views, booming après ski and large doses of sunshine? That’s more like it. Here in Borovets you’ll experience a resort steeped in tradition and culture, and of course the fantastic skiing opportunities you’d expect to find at Bulgaria’s 1st ski region. 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. Each of the 3 ski areas offer int...
In spite of Bansko’s up and coming popularity, Borovets remains the party capital of Bulgarian ski resorts, with vibrant nightlife guaranteed as soon as you’re off the slopes. The ever friendly bar hosts at places like Bobby’s and Samokov offer unbelievably cheap local beer, and once the Bulgarian Rakia shots start flowing, you’ll understand why people are back in Borovets year after year. However, in spite of the après ski festivities, Borovets is far from just another ‘lads holiday’ ski destination. I...

4/ out of 5
The hotel is absolutely fine – what they call a 4 star in Bulgaria you wouldn’t call a 4 star here but at the end of the day you’re out there to go skiing! In terms of what’s available in Borovets, there are only 3 big hotels and this one is certainly in the top 3. There’s a decent bar downstairs, the main gondola for the top of the mountain is a 3 minute walk downhill and there’s another lift the same distance up the hill.
