Welcome to Borovets Ski Resort

For beginner and intermediate skiers looking for a great trip on a budget, Borovets is a perfect option. Bulgaria has rightly become popular in recent years with families and students thanks to its great value, great skiing and fun nightlife. Borovets is among the largest of Bulgaria’s resorts and offers cruisy skiing and boarding up to 2,500m. Most of the pistes run through old pine forests which gives the place a unique charm – and also improves visibility when it’s a snow day. For boarders there’s a 250m long terrain park with a variety of rails, boxes and kickers. Unlike the Alps, the après is more varied with a mix of hotel bars and traditional pubs and clubs on offer.

Other things to do in Borovets

How about some floodlit skiing? Borovets has a mix of ten slopes that are open at night for the truly committed. Away from the slopes there’s winter hiking, horse riding, bowling and a 10km cross-country skiing circuit where Bulgaria’s biathletes come here to train for their cross-country skiing and shooting – so don’t be alarmed if you’re overtaken by someone with a rifle on their back. Many hotels have their own pools and spas for relaxing afterwards, as well as their own bars for kicking off the evening. There’s a vibrant nightlife in Borovets and several clubs where you can dance until the early hours. Or for something different, visit a mehana, a traditional Balkan pub serving local food and music.
