Ski Bulgaria

 

Regardless of its small territory the landscape of Bulgaria is highly varied. Almost 30% of its territory is occupied by mountain areas of different origin. About 40% of it are hilly areas of altitude between 300 and 600m above the sea level. The average annual temperatures vary within the range from -3°C to 14°C.

 

BULGARIAN SKI RESORTS

 

Pamporova

Pamporovo has an exclusive climate featuring a soft winter with around 120 sunny days during the skiing period. This is a result of the influence of The Aegean Sea and the skiing season starts from mid December to mid April. The average air temperature is - 3 ° C. The gentle profile of the mountain with its rounded slopes and summits makes Pamporovo particularly suitable for beginners. But there are also difficult ski runs like the Giant Slalom run which is an excellent run for the experts.

 

All slopes are safe guarded and maintained in a very good condition. More than 100 qualified ski instructors fluent in English are here to teach both beginners and intermediate skiers and snowboarders. Ski rentals are available near the ski runs and the lift stations. The ski runs in Pamporovo come in various levels of difficulty. They are located between 1926m and 1450m above the sea level on the northern, eastern and western slopes of The Snejanka peak. All in all great off-piste skiing and snowboarding is available in this resort, however we recommend using a guide if planning to go off-piste.
