Bulgaria 'a bargain for skiers'

Bulgaria 'a bargain for skiers' Snow sports enthusiasts looking for a good value break should consider ski holidays in Borovets, according to the latest research.

The Post Office has released its Ski Resort Report, which highlights ski holidays in Bulgaria as the cheapest due to low-price ski equipment rental and cost of living.

Borovets - the oldest ski resort in the country - was singled out by the Post Office report, which also placed ski holidays in Romania and Slovenia ski holidays in the top three for good value this winter.

The Post Office's head of travel services, Helen Warburton, said it is "important" that ski holidaymakers pick a resort to match their needs and skills.

"Challenging ski runs and resort facilities are more likely to determine choice for experienced skiers, whereas first-timers and families will be more concerned about sticking to a budget than about finding black runs," Ms Warburton said.

Germany and Italy made up the top five cheapest ski destinations for tourists, according to the report.

Ski holidays in Kranjska Gora, ranked third in the Ski Resort Report, also made a recent top ten ski destinations list from TripAdvisor.
