This up and coming resort, as far as popularity in Western Europe goes at least, is better later on in the season and perfect for intermediate skiers and families looking for a less expensive European ski trip. It’s the biggest resort in Bulgaria and has the best infrastructure so visitors can expect the same kind of facilities, when it comes to tuition, crèches, restaurants and rental as in other large resorts.

Skiing is varied on runs suited to all levels, it is a large resort as well as established, and the quality is better than many visitors, or at least those in my family, expected.

Stayed at new Borovets Gardens Aparthotel. Excellent accommodation and no distance from ski area - just a short walk to chair lift and all village. Food excellent and cheap. Weather great, sunshine and snow. No huge lines for chair lift.
