The Sofia/Rila Mountains region
Borovets is the oldest international and most conveniently located mountain resort to the capital city, Sofia. It is located at 1350m above sea level with the highest pistes at 2600 m on the northern-facing slopes of the Rila mountains. It is set among pine forests, at the foot of Mussala peak (2925 m), the highest on the Balkan Peninsula.
There are 45 km of pistes varying in difficulty and length for skiing and snowboarding. There are ski runs for beginners, intermediates and advanced skiers, designed with international markings and multilingual signs. Several floodlit pistes also allow late night fun on the snow. The resort is best suited to beginner or intermediate level skiers, and there is a range of trails above the tree line and through the pine forests.
Snow conditions are among the best in Eastern Europe and the season usually lasts from mid December to April. There are also snow-making machines. The Borovets ski school has more than 200 ski instructors fluent in foreign languages and some of them are former professional skiers. Instructors are friendly and teach to a good standard.
Renting equipment is cheap and there are many ski hire depots offering competitive prices. The Albena ski depot in the Flora complex may be able to assist you with ski hire and has the advantage of being located in the building itself. Another option is to rent through our agent in Borovets, Stefan Dokouzov, who organises ski packages (ski rental, lift pass and instruction) at a discount rate. Details of group and individual charges may be found at http://www.balkan-pms.com/ski-packs-borovets. These can be booked prior to your arrival in Borovets. Buying quality ski equipment is often good value, particularly towards the end of the ski season.
Borovets also offers a vibrant apres ski and night-life scene with its many bars, cafes, night clubs and discos that stay open into the early morning. A night out is extremely good value for money especially with special 'happy hour' discounts or out of season deals and a 3 course meal that can be enjoyed for under £15.
Slightly further afield is the Rila Monastery (about 90 minutes), Bulgaria’s largest and most famous monastery, founded in 927 AD and hidden high in the Rila mountains.
