Pamporovo is situated high up in the Rhodopi mountains at the foot of Snejanka Peak (1926m). With its rounded slopes and summits this Bulgarian resort is ideal for beginners and intermediates. For advanced skiers there are difficult ski runs like "Stenata" (‘The Wall’).
The hub of Pamporovo comprises a number of excellent hotels and bars. It is also one of the southernmost skiing resorts in Europe. Pamporovo is the sunniest Bulgarian mountain resort. The winter here is soft with 120 sunny days. The ski pistes are covered with snow throughout the whole skiing season that lasts from December to April.
Confident intermediates and advanced skiers will find a World Cup run and some interesting through-the-trees off piste but this is really a resort for beginner skiers and snowboarders who want to learn and progress.The long greens and blues, as well as the nursery slopes down in the village are ideal for learning and progressing on. Ski instruction is of an extremely high standard and, because Bulgaria is so easy on the wallet, individual tuition can be very affordable. Many of the instructors also speak English fluently.
