Pamporovo is one of the top ski resorts in Bulgaria and a great option for families and beginners who are looking to enjoy some winter fun on the slopes.
The rounded slopes around the resort are well suited to less experienced skiers, with long green and blue runs as well as an award-winning ski school.
However, despite the fact that the resort is more beginner focused, there are also plenty of options for those who are capable of skiing at a higher level, which include a high quality World Cup run.
Whilst Pamporovo is a resort that benefits from plenty of sunshine every year, you don’t need to worry about the snow because there are snow machines to ensure that the pistes are always in ideal shape
When it comes to places to stay, you can chose from a range of cost-effective accommodation options whilst there is plenty of après-ski to ensure that when the sun goes down, the action never stops.
With Bulgaria becoming an increasingly popular choice for a ski holiday, Pamporovo is somewhere you should bear in mind for your winter adventure.
Off Piste Skiing in Pamporovo
Experienced skiers can take on the challenge of a tough Black run called the Wall but if you want to go off piste and explore, you can do that too with areas that provide the chance to go skiing off through the trees.
Family Skiing in Pamporovo
The ski schools in Pamporovo are some of the best around and are run by English-speaking guides. That makes them a great place for the kids to learn to ski, whilst the costs ensure you won’t break the bank in the process. There are also plenty of facilities for families off the slopes, including a kindergarten where they can be entertained whilst you continue skiing.
Apres-Ski in Pamporovo
Lively après-ski is available at a range of bars and restaurants across the resort, meaning there is no shortage of entertainment on an evening. You can head for a traditional old pub if you simply want to grab a beer or can dance the night away in a busy club; the choice is yours. As with other Bulgarian resorts, the costs involved will also be lower than you might expect.
Non-Skiing Activities in Pamporovo
