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...

Great family holiday here! Perfect for beginners/intermediate skiers and instructors are excellent! Slopes can get a bit crowded if any of the other more advanced slopes are closed due to lack of snow.
