We had a wonderful experience with this ski school. Matt looked after us extremely well. We’re a huge group of 16 children. We booked through here because after having some private lessons last year and chatting to them we were assured the group size would be no more than 8. This has pleased us in previous years the group sizes in other schools were too big. We had miko and George who were both incredible with the kids. So much so we’ve decided to change our plans for bansko and come back to borovets! Thanks for a fabulous week

Came across Matt and the ski school after some not so positive experiences with another ski school in Borovets for my 6 year old son. After one hour with Veli he has found his love of skiing and had another lesson the next day with Nadia. Small classes (I spied 7 in a group at half term, perfect) which is what parents want. Give them that they will return. We will be back!

Husband and son had lessons from Yanakiev (both with instructors called Peter)
Son really enjoyed his lessons and skiing with his instructor and he said was helpful and friendly. He tidied up his technique and had him going down Black runs.

Husband was a first time boarder. His instructor was amazing, friendly, patient and genuinely enjoyed teaching people - he is apparently a pro boarder and yet spent days patiently teaching someone who’d never set foot on a board. All with good humour and patience.

Neither instructor would take a tip - which is basically unheard of. We literally had to force the money into their hands.

Absolutely recommend this school and happily give it 5*.

These guys are by far the best in resort! Super friendly with instructors to help you whatever your ability at very reasonable prices.

Their hire equipment is also the best I’ve sern in Borovets. When you hire a first season board that’s actually what you get! I hired one of their higher end Lib Tech boards and it’s possibly the best board I’ve ridden!

Amazing set up and wonderful instructors. As a beginner, I have to hire board, boots, and helmet for 4 and a half days this cost 90 levs around £40-£45, which I think is very reasonable. I had one lesson this week and it made so much sense that I can now turn correctly. Probably the best ski school I have visited in the three season I have visited

we are a family with young-ish children and had Miko as out instructor twice a day for 6 days. really enjoyed learning to ski and Miko got the balance of being patient, but also pushing us, exactly right.
the only issue id mention is that as new skiers it would of been nice to get to help explaining how to put on our boots, take them off, store them, be told that we need to knock the snow off skies before coming into the centre etc, we were unaware of etiquette and the guys that hand the kit out (not Miko) might of explained it all to us.

Subject: Lessons at your Ski school
We would just like to record our thanks for the excellent teaching that we have received through your ski school and especially mention our teacher (Bobby) Borislav Koshtrov
I am 69 years old and my wife is over 60 we have been skiing since the 1980s but have been stuck on a plateau of learning since then
Bobby has given us a lot of confidence and improved our skills so that we can now tackle more difficult slopes and conditions
Today is the last day of our holiday and we are looking forward to coming back here again and maybe next time bringing our little granddaughter so she can learn skiing in your excellent school

We are a family of 5 (13, 21, 23 & x2 40+) first time skiing Ever, we booked with the ski school as we were staying at the hotel over Christmas it was so convenient you can ski in & out straight onto the slopes (also apres ski bar next door 🍻) arranged lessons equipment hire via email with Matt the owner month before we arrived, the progress we made in 6 days we felt was amazing we went from learning to put skis on to parallel skiing from the top of the mountain to coming down slopes that in a million years you would have never thought at the beginning of the week this was all down to the encouragement & patience of our instructor Stoyan (AKA Stan). Our group consisted of only the 5 of us as the ski school has a maximum of 7/8 in a group we did notice a lot of other ski schools on the slopes consisted of 12/15 in a group, don’t think we would have progressed as much as there seemed to be a lot of standing around waiting for everyone to try the different elements. We made some changes mid way through the week to enhance the experience nothing seemed to be to much trouble, all the staff were helpful, location was great, equipment was good, based on our experience we would definitely recommend & we will be using again when we return next year...got the skiing bug now
