Spring riding in late March – when slopes are empty and still in great shape, sun shines all days long and cold drinks at the end of the day taste better than ever.
Weather conditions & Forecast
Unlike the week before, Spring has now definitely settled in Borovets. However, thanks to the generous snowfalls this season, slopes were absolutely brilliant this week. Last few days were all about sunny days on the slopes topped with great views. Conditions were equally great for both skiing and tanning. Jokes aside, skiing is really enjoyable at the moment and we can only hope for more days like these this week.
The forecast for this week predicts a little bit of rain but so far we’ve got none. It will probably be not as sunny as the week before. The good news is that will preserve the slopes for a little while longer. And speaking of slopes..
Slopes & Lifts
It may be Spring but all slopes and lifts in the resort operate as usual. Overall, it’s really been a great week of spring skiing here in Borovets. Slopes are indeed brilliant at the moment – empty, fast but forgiving with no queues at the lifts in the bottom.
Friendly tip: Spring skiing can be great choice for beginner skiers and snowboarders who often struggle in busy slopes with plenty of surpassing at different speed skiers.
Mornings offer firm conditions but runs get bit slushy in the afternoons and still make for a really nice ride. It’s a great mix of conditions for riders of all levels and interest.
To prove our point, here’s a picture of the Red Flat slope from the other day. It’s not often that we see this slope open and in such incredible shape.
To sum it up, spring riding has been incredible this past week. We do hope there’ll be new snow before the end of the season but chances are not too high. However, spring riding does have its perks and makes a great choice for a late skiing holiday.
