Cross-country skiing is a popular alternative to alpine skiing, even though many resorts don’t have the proper facilities. Luckily enough, Borovets is well equipped with 35km of groomed tracks specifically designed for the task. Both biathlon and cross-country athletes come to train here, but many guests of the resort use the track freely.


The easiest way to get to these tracks is from the bottom gondola station. If you look at the piste map, you’ll see that the end of the Yastrebets 1 ski run and a small part of the cross-country ski run share the same track. From there you enter Sport Center Bistritsa, which has a total length of 10.5km. There you will also find the biathlon shooting range. It’s not open for guests, but during a race it’s a good spot for onlookers. The total cross-country ski area consists of 2 other areas as well – Shiroka Poliana and Varnika. There are roughly 35km of groomed tracks, which were designed in accordance to FIS regulations. The cross-country course is about 6 meters wide and groomed regularly during the season, as long as the conditions permit. The Bistritsa Sport Center is equipped with artificial snow cannons, which means that it is skiable for the better part of the season.
