As the year comes to an end, it’s time for our final Snow Report of 2018! This week our focus will be on the night skiing conditions and the brand new lift in the Sitnyakovo Ski Center. If you want more information about the night skiing in Borovets in general, click HERE check out this article we wrote.
New for the 2018/19 winter season, Borovets have removed the old 4-seat lift that serviced the Sitnaykovo Ski Center and night skiing and replaced it with a brand new 6-seat Leitner lift. The upgrade was needed to cope with the increasing interest for night skiing and is a great addition to the resort, as now all of the old chairlifts left over from communist times have been replaced with new ones. This greatly adds to the comfort and value visitors in Borovets receive, now all that’s left is for a new gondola.
All slopes that work during the night skiing are open and groomed, including the beginners’ Rotata, Iglika and Rila. The snow conditions are also good, but not perfect with no rocks or icy patches on the slopes. The best-groomed slope tonight was the black Martinovi Baraki 4 piste, while the worst was the N.3 Martinovi Baraki. Snow conditions haven’t changed much in the rest of the resort since our last Snow Report, with the Markudjik Ski Center still closed. However, the Haramia ski run has opened, connecting the top gondola station with the Yastrebets Ski Center, where the best skiing in Borovets currently is. This means you won’t need to take a shuttle to get there and you can use the gondola.
The forecast is for cold temperatures and some snowfall over the New Years, so we’re hoping more ski runs will open very soon. Check back next year for our next Snow Report to find out if the forecast was right this time.
