The last weekend of January was great in Borovets – despite the mild wind, slopes delivered great fun all day long. Early bird riders could choose between crispy fresh slopes and fresh powder snow off-piste – two great options to choose from.

Slopes & Lifts

It’s a great time to be in Borovets right now – slopes are still not busy and remain in great conditions for most of the day. Thanks to this week’s snowfall, all runs continue to be really fast and fun but also forgiving to beginners. The Bulgarian mid-term school vacation will start next week, and with that pistes are expected to gradually get busier. The good news is that the amount of snow in the resort at the moment is fantastic for this part of the year and all lifts and runs are opened and will be able to accommodate the traffic.

Quiet slopes on a beautiful sunny day – doesn’t get better than this.

The entire ski area was opened today after a short break yesterday when the strong winds made the resort close down the Markudjik skia area. The Sitnyakovo and Martinovi baraki runs are also great at the moment and make for a great choice for those of you who’d like to stay away from the colder temperatures in the upper part of the resort.

The overall conditions of all slopes at the moment is as good as It gets – all runs have an excellent snow cover and even the Musala pathway is fully operating and delivers quite some views across its 8km of length.
