ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Beginners can enjoy a high standard of English speaking instructors and gentle nursery slopes, just beside the Rila Hotel Complex and barely three minutes' walk from the Hotel Samokov and Borosport chalets. Instruction is 4 hours per day, 6 days a week (2 hours a day for cross country). The friendly, fluent in foreign languages instructors make learning quick and efficient. Beginners start the week on the nursery slopes outside the Hotel Rila but by the end of the week everyone is heading for the gondola lift and the more challenging runs at the top of Yastrebets. The Borovets ski school has an excellent international reputation. The best ski run for absolute beginners is Sitnyakovo 1 (5800 m).

Intermediate skiers can enjoy a very good resort for their skills. Most of the total 19 ski runs are ideal for the intermediate skier. The choices are wide and varied, with excellent skiing in the exciting Yastrebets area and from the Sitnyakovski chair lift. The well-planned lift system includes the 5 km, 6-person Yastrebets gondolla lift, which opens up a wealth of enjoyable runs, ranging from wide sunny boulevards in the Moussala basin, to scenic looping trails through the trees. From the gondolla taking you to the top you can try the longest downhill run in Bulgaria, as well as some great skiing on the slopes of the wind-free basin underneath Moussala peak.

Advanced skiers and experts can enjoy the black runs of Markujik 2 and 3. Also the testing World Cup run, one of the more challenging pistes on the Yastrebets area or the excellent skiing through the trees and off-piste. Borovets is one of the highest rideable areas in Europe with some well varied terrain. The best spots to head for are those above 2500m and the runs under the Gondola. For those who want to leave the ground there is plenty of natural hits and rollers.

PISTE MAINTENANCE: Modern machines maintain the excellent condition of the ski tracks. No matter if it is snowing or not the tracks are trampled down every night. The company maintaining the pistes gives a guarantee of 120 days of snowy tracks per year. So skiing on the tracks is possible form the beginning of December till mid April.

NEW  • A 200-meter carpet lift takes the skiers from ski center Markudjik to the upper station of the gondola lift "Yastrebetz".
• The widened Musala Pathway is fully completed. This 10-km ski path is the easiest way down to the center of Borovets.

    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.

    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!!!
