Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were only in Borovets for 3 days and put the 3 children aged 9, 10 & 14, who had never been skiing before, in for group lessons. There were only 5 in the group, Veli, their instructor was amazing, so patient, positive, and encouraging. All three took to it with different levels of ease, but he was great with them all. We also hired all their ski equipment from here, which was perfect. Thank you to Matt, Veli and all the staff in the hire shop. Excellent service all round.

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
