Winter Activities

Borovets, Skiing Infromation

Beginners

The ski school in Borovets has a long tradition of welcoming British skiers, many of whom have returned year after year. Borovets has two main nursery areas, one just 20m from the Hotel Rila and the second at over 2000m, accessible by gondola, ideal if snow conditions at resort level aren’t perfect. Within a few days most beginners are ready to progress on to the more challenging slopes of the Sitnyakovska chairlift. A fantastic place to learn to ski.

Intermediates

Most runs here are ideally suited to the intermediate skier, with some enjoyable runs sweeping down through the trees in the Yastrebets area. From the top of the gondola in Borovets at 2363m, you will find numerous interesting descents including a new 12km run right to the base of the mountain.

Advanced

The World Cup area reached by the 6-seater gondola offers the most testing skiing in Borovets and there are two challenging runs on the Yastrebets area for the more advanced skier.

Snowboarding

The gentle slopes are ideal for mastering the basics, however first-timers may find the many drag lifts difficult to cope with.
