Borovets is the biggest mountain resort in Bulgaria. The 40km of pistes are spread over three sectors, two of which, Markoudjika and Yastrebets, are loosely linked. The third one is Baraki, accessed by several lifts. Borovets has reliable snow cover but by no means guaranteed. Borovets suffers from weekend lift lines and a lack of adequate piste-grooming. There is 1,323m - 2,540m of altitude at Borovets.

Resorts close to Borovets include: Malyovitsa (18 km), Vitosha (47 km), Bansko (50 km), Chepelare (103 km), Ponikva (103 km),

Visitor Reviews of Borovets

Tony Faulkner from United Kingdom writes:

Just been to Borevet on the 27/3/2014. I did read bad reviews on this resort and was worried a bit. The skiing was excellent; private lessons from Gorge for my 8 year old niece next to the titanic bar were excellent! Stayed at the Rila hotel that was just fine. Food wasn't brilliant but what do you expect from a buffet from a hotel. Pool facilities were excellent. I've skied the Rocky Mountains and the Alps and would definitely go back there. Value for money was second to none. Can't wait to go back.
