When you think of last minute skiing holidays, you may think of the French Alps or Switzerland or perhaps even Canada. Unless you’re in the know, you may not even consider Bulgaria as a potential ski destination. Over recent years, this Eastern European country has become increasingly popular with Brits, opting to head here for their annual ski holiday rather than the more notorious ski resorts. Why? Because the slopes are less crowded, the resorts are quieter, and there are fewer tourists to contend with.
Bulgaria Ski holidays also provide fantastic value in comparison to some of the more popular resorts that can sometimes charge through the nose because they know people will pay it. Resorts in the area are perfect for beginners and intermediates, with plenty of green, blue and red slopes to choose from. Ski schools are available, no matter how competent you are – if you want to spruce up your skills, tuition is waiting for you.
Take a look at these two fantastic resorts for inspiration:
This is the largest ski resort in Bulgaria, complete with modern amenities including a top of the range lift system. Tree-lined slopes on its high mountains provide a rustic and scenic terrain to begin your adventure, while off the slopes, picturesque walks and traditional entertainment as part of a great après ski scene, are in abundance.
This fun resort is a perfect place to learn to ski. Set amidst the thick pine forests of the Rila Mountains, Borovets offers great value ski packages and excellent English-speaking ski schools to help you improve your moves.
Whatever your proficiency on the slopes, Bulgaria is fast becoming the new go-to place for skiers. Start planning and book one of the last minute skiing holidays available, today.
