We travelled to Pamporovo from Istanbul by car as 4 people ( me, my wife, 17 years old, and 7 years old daughter ) was a smoot trip. When we arrived I feel like I am in a fairy tail story. The ski resort of Pamporovo was so nice with the forest all around, very quite and no crowd. Also... More

This is the most suitable place in Bulgaria for family ski holiday. There are slopes for advanced but also for beginners and for skiers with intermediate skills. Relatively wide choise of acommodation. Also ski schools and private ski-teachers at very reasonable prices. Lovely and picturesque surroundings, round-shaped mountain peaks and venerable trees.

I have gone from being afraid to ski down green slope to calmly skiing down the red slopes in 9 days. Near Malina one person lift tfood is cheaper I loved everything about Pamporovo and got hoocked on skiing.... More

Don't listen to beyaz2015 Don't know what he's talking about, been to Pamporovo twice and it's been brilliant. Nice people, good food and excellent value for money with good tuition - I paid 168 euros for ski pass, skis and 4 hours with instructor per day for 6 days all in so 60 quid for 3 hours is absolute rubbish...

I never recommend this ski resort to anyone even if I was born in Bulgaria.The service is so poor, the staff who work at the lifts are so rude. Once I had an argument just because I couldn't open the locker of the seat, the guy threw me the seat and it hit my board. He is not aware of... More
