The sun still shines bright, and yet you can’t help to stop dreaming about the snow and the adrenaline on the slopes. It is about the right time to make plans for the winter vacation in advance to make sure the best-valued deals by Balkan Holidays are yet on the table. Even if it seems too early to take a look on the Borovets ski map you need to know that the demand for the oldest Bulgarian mountain resort shows the tendency to increase over the years.
Rila mountain is a year-round favorite for tourists
Thousands of people go for hiking around the highest range on the Balkans. The tallest peak of the region – Musala, stands bold 2925 above the sea level and is situated just out of to the borders of the Borovets ski map. Actually, you can reach the mountaintop from the main resort, but it takes six or seven hours one way – and almost the same for the way back. Using the lift, the hikers can shorten the climbing of Musala to the half of the time. The lift operates year-round (excluding the periods when it stops for a week or two for maintenance), and so does Borovets webcam system. You can view the images from the key zones of the resorts updated in May or September – it’s green and shiny.
But it will show up snow white soon. The Borovets snow report starts to show values of the “powder” on the slopes higher than zero sometimes in November or even late-October. But usually, the season starts officially in the first half of December to make sure that the cover on the pistes is thick enough for the skiers and snowboarders. If you want to ski Borovets slopes earlier, you need to check if the weather conditions are favorable to make it happen. If Borovets snow report shows no cover on the slopes and average temperature above 0 Celsius, you will be able to hike and enjoy the beauty of nature in the area but riding down for a slalom would be out of availability.
January is the busiest time of the resort
That’s why you have to book it weeks or even months up-front to be sure you will get a good deal. The season usually lasts between three and four months, but sometimes Bansko webcam network shows that there is enough snow on the hills till mid-April. The late bookings might happen to be an outstanding hit but if you tend to plan the winter vacation for more traditional periods like January or February, better don’t wait too long.
The resort is suitable for both newbies and experienced skiers. You can see on the Borovets ski map that some of the green type tracks are located on the area of the village. Actually, if you are a first-timer, it is more likely to take your first lessons in the yard of some the biggest hotels in the area. Wishing to ski Borovets pistes of the Red or the Black type means you have the skills and the history behind your back to be confident and safe while you ride down the hill. The night slalom is available too, and it is exciting to make such attempt.
The thing you won’t see on Bansko snow report but can enjoy during the time of your vacation is the apres-ski part of it. Having fun after sunset is undoubtedly an exciting option in the oldest Bulgarian winter resort. If you go there to ski, Borovets will deliver what you need. But if you want more than that – you will have it too.
