“Pamporovo ski resort.”
Reviewed 22 January 2014

This was my first time skiing and after being very apprehensive, I can honestly say that we chose the best resort for this experience. Our instructor was top class and teaches all levels of skiers. He was very patient, positive and never pushed beyond the means.
The hotel musquavets was very basic and loud, however, food good and service okay.
The ski school itself is well run and they assist with your hire kit at all times.
If you intend to go, and going to to do the ski school, ask for the instructor NASCO. You will not be disappointed.

“Simply the best for beginners and all others”
Reviewed 6 January 2014

The friendly staff . Food at Alex's pub on the mountain. The mountain. The instructors teach you so quickly, but do not push the slower to learn to go beyond their means. The night life. Just the whole package here!!!

“the 2 gentle butchers of Pamporovo”
Reviewed 24 December 2013

hi there, just beware of so called doctors in Pamporovo ski resort-Bulgaria, because after getting an accident and a radio later, the 2 businessmen(200€for the joke) will tell you :Go you can go". Nothing on their radio but an anterior cruciate ligament broken! So I came back on 1 leg in the snow, then by car, by plane and car again with no strap around the knee.
My advice : bring you doctor with you or take a good insurance.

“Always enjoyable, and the ski schools are superb.”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

I have been coming back to Pamporovo and it's pistes since 2011. To date, I am pleased to say my experience has always been a fun and happy holiday.

No matter the weather, the staff a re very safety conscious of your safety, and having as much fun as is possible!

There are pistes for every level of ability, with a nice blend of different grades interspersed with harder and easier runs.

It is all the better if you get down as early as you can in the morning, to avoid a large school group, if you are travelling solo or as a couple. It is a very popular resort.

In the afternoon, the snow is sweeter, with a lovely flow on the skis, depending on how mild it is.

Whenever you go, you will have a great time.

“Value for money”
Reviewed 10 June 2013

We chose this resort by chance, but were pleasantly surprised. The dry snow covered every where, which made it magical, the people are very welcoming and accommodating, the food is basic, but fresh and very tasty. The ski rates are very low, but equipment - first class. Our coach spoke perfect English and was encouraging us to learn and get down the challenging slopes. Its less than 2 hours from the Airport with plenty of restaurants, exchange bureau and even sauna and indoor swimming pool in some hotels that you can pay and enjoy. Plenty to do at this resort such as riding snow mobil in the jungle.
