Most popular ski resorts in Bulgaria

It’s easy to see why Bansko is the most popular resort – it has the prettiest, biggest town, best ski area and liveliest après ski. This picturesque old town sits on the valley floor at the foot of the Pirin Mountain in a UNESCO World Heritage site. The conditions are the most reliable in the country – Bansko is known for having the most snow and longest season of all the Bulgarian resorts.

Although knee deep in history, it’s one of the fasting developing resorts of the moment and is constantly improving. Modern lifts serve the ski area which can be completely covered by snowmaking and caters excellently for all levels of skier and rider - the FIS Alpine World Cup has been held here which demonstrates the high level of terrain you can ski. With 100’s of bars and restaurants, this is also Bulgaria’s liveliest resort when it comes to après ski which makes it the most popular destination for groups.

Surrounded by pine forests on the Rila mountain is the famous town of Borovets; the oldest of Bulgaria’s ski resorts with superb beginner slopes and great opportunity for other abilities too. The Biathlon track here is world-class and the nightlife is somewhat legendary thanks to the amazingly cheap price of drink. Borovets is particularly popular with families and beginners and has a strong clientele of return visitors year in, year out.

Nestled in the Rhodopi Mountain you’ll find Pamporovo, the sunniest resort in Bulgaria with excellent slopes for beginners and intermediates and famously friendly locals. This is one of the cheapest places to learn to ski and many opt for holidays here so they can test out the mountains without forking out a fortune – the English speaking instructors, sun-drenched area and gentle, tree-lined pistes are almost certain to give you the skiing bug.
