9 May 2003: SKI SEASON 2002-2003 IS FINISHED
Another great ski season in the mountains of Bulgaria is finished!
We had great time with plenty of snow on the slopes this winter. The season started on 14 December 2002 and finished on 5 May 2003. We had wonderful snow conditions in all resorts during the whole season, without no- or bad-snow days.
We, at BulgariaSki.com did our best to keep you informed about the current conditions on the pistes, published hundred of photos, wrote plenty of reports on the skiing/snowboarding, visited the best bars and discos in the resorts and ... drunk loads of beer with all BulgariaSki friends.
Now a hot summer is coming in Bulgaria. We will not update the info on the site as often as the winter, but will inform you about everything important that happens in the mountain resorts.
Please visit our discussion board regularly, the discussion is on and the latest information will be published there.
If you are interested on how the season was going, please visit our archive pages and the historic snow reports
Mr. BulgariaSki will stay on-line for all your questions by email nic@bulgariaski.com or in the discussion board.
Thanks, and have a nice summer!

The resort of Bansko still enjoys great skiing in the morning hours, the snow cover is 110 cm and most pistes are open!
However the snow is melting very fast in the rest of the Bulgarian ski resorts, and the pistes there are closing. The hot weather in Bulgaria is already here.
So, the ski lovers are advised to go to Bansko for some last days of skiing this season!

19 April 2003
It is snowing again in the mountains of Bulgaria. There are very few skiers in the resorts now, therefore the pistes of Borovets were not groomed past few days. The company operating the lifts in Borovets announced that they will bash them for the weekend (Fri, Sat, Sun) when more skiers are expected to come. In Pamporovo there are about 65 cm of snow, but all pistes and lifts are open. In Bansko there are about 130 cm, most pistes and slopes are open and working. The skiing is good in the morning, when it is colder, but after lunch it gets too warm and the snow becomes very soft.

7 April 2003
It has been snowing in Bulgaria last 3 days, today it is snowing heavily. 
There is fresh snow cover in all mountain resorts, in Borovets the total snow cover is 90 cm in Bansko 140 cm.
This late April snow will provide another 2 or 3 weeks of good skiing.
Read the detailed snow report here.

Great ski conditions in Borovets after the recent snowfall.

At the moment the main Bulgarian mountain resorts offer excellent snow and piste conditions. Skiing and boarding is possible since the official opening of the resorts (14-20 Dec 2002) for the new season 2002/2003. It is even better since the fresh snow that we had in the night of 31 Dec and the day of 1 Jan 2003!
Another week of great skiing is on it's way!

    I went with my daughter January 2018. I was a cheap half board flights included and we wasn’t expecting much.... but what a fantastic week we had!! Stayed at the Lion hotel which is about a 10-15 minute walk to the slopes/town. A free shuttle is provide by the hotel. The hotel and staff are lovely. The food was always varied and hot. My daughter and I are vegetarians and in only two nights were we disappointed with the choice - but we heaped up on pudding so didn’t go hungry. Am lucky enough to be going back in 2018.

    I wonder if the poor review is really about the Winslow Elegance. We have been going for years. It does not serve food and never has done. However, the spacious accommodation is for self-catering. We have always found it to be clean and we have always found that the reception staff can not do enough for you. We are looking forward to our next visit in February, 2017, Bring it on!!

    Had a great week over xmas there - Hotel Lion was great, didn't see any lift queues but I did get there early. Easy blues for the most part, not loads for the advanced skier but great for beginners and families. I had more fun here than Chamonix last year at the same time. Bottom line ...manage your expectations... it is more than value for money but don't expect Whistler.

Friendly staff, not ovr crowded relaxed athmosphere. our friends (group with total of 7 rooms) all very happy! It is away from city center but close to bowling and 2 nice reaturans.

    Just came back from Sevlievo in Bulgaria. Drove up to Hotel Impulse in Uzana where I hired skis, boots and poles for myself and two children for just 17 levs for adult and 10 levs each child and used the hotel ski slope 5 levs each. Perfect for the kids first time as parking right at entrance to hotel and slope is 20m walk! Food in restaurant tasty and cheap. Perfect for beginners!

    WOW, thats all i can say about the previous week of my life. The snow conditions were amazing and the people were so friendly. The night life was always active and the rila hotel was especially fantastic. I loved the accommodation at the rila and i loved the way it is right on the slope. I wouldn't have changed a thing about the holiday and i would recommend this resort to everyone including beginners and experts. Overall, i had an amazing time!!!
