Bulgaria's ski areas are going through a period of change and have been largely modernised in recent years. Nothing was left to chance during the improvements and the ski areas now shine with new brilliancy. The pistes have been made more diverse and there is something for everyone, from beginners to experts, as well as for both skiers and snowboarders.
The most famous ski areas are located in Bansko, with a total of 65 km of piste, and Borovets, with 52 km of piste. The modernised ski area at Bansko has developed into one of the most important winter sports centres in Eastern Europe. Three ski areas belong to the Borovets ski territory in the Rila mountain chain. They are very snow-sure and offer lovely runs into the valley.
