Spotlight On: Borovets

Guest Post by Catherine M.

The town of Borovets, situated in the Sofia Province in Bulgaria, is a popular resort on the northern slopes of Rila that has huge potential to become one of the go-to skiing destinations for beginner and intermediate skiers. Not only is it slightly quieter, with less crowded slopes than its overly popular neighbours, but if you book one of the all inclusive ski holidays online, you can benefit from some fabulously affordable stays that won’t break the bank too.

Borovets is the oldest of Bulgaria’s winter resorts, gradually developing into the site it is today. With its fair share of upmarket chalets and budget hotels, anyone can enjoy a stint on the slopes here without wondering where the funds are coming from. There are talks to expand the resort, with plans on hold at the moment, but in the meantime, there are 58km of marked pistes with many runs ending near the village centre for total convenience.

The resort is particularly recommended for people learning to ski. Ideal for intermediates and beginners alike, families would also benefit from the reputable English-speaking ski schools to help hone your skills.

Après ski facilities are good, with great value restaurants and bars scattered around the village centre. International cuisine ensures that whatever your palette, you will find something delicious, while the local beers are aplenty. Check out some of the traditional entertainment that is held regularly, for an authentic Bulgarian treat.

Step away from the slopes and you can enjoy a whole manner of off-piste activities, including bumboarding and snow mobiling. Once a week, you can also watch the impressive ski show, performed by the instructors who will show off their synchronised moves and jumps that will inspire wow moments.

If you’re looking for something a little different for a mountain vacation, choose one of the Bulgarian all inclusive ski holidays online. The resort of Borovets is a perfect base for beginners and an ideal choice for your 2013/4 holiday.
