Snow, sun and a lot of fun.
This is how I can describe my latest snowboard trip to one of the most popular Bulgarian ski and snowboard resorts – Borovets.
Actually it is one of my favorite places for snowboarding. Borovets a resort, located in the Rila Mountain. It is about 75 km away from Sofia, which makes it a preferred destination for most of the Sofia winter sports fans.
This is why sometimes the resort is quite overcrowded. It happens mainly on the weekends, when most of the people are resting. Also then the ski passes are cheaper. This season a daily pass during the week is 55 levs (1 Euro = 1.96 levs), but on Saturday and Sunday you will pay 35 levs.
Personally, I really like this resort because of the various long slopes which it offers and many ski lifts, that prevent the long stay in queues at the lift stations.
This is my third season enjoying the Borovets’s winter sport facilities.
