Travelling to Borovets, we contacted RilSki in advance and had a call with George on the phone which was excellent to me able to actually speak to a person about things!!!

George booked literally everything for us! Transfers from airport, ski & boot hire, ski service and lift passes. All at ridiculously competitive prices. Equipment was all brilliant, new and in great condition unlike so many places. Nothing was too much trouble.

My partner and son having never skied before had 4 x 2 hour lessons and by day three skiing confidently down blue slopes. George gave my daughter another lesson and had her on black slopes parallel turning at 10 years old.

In this world of many choices, it was lovely to have a company with a very personal touch who took care of everything in a very profession way but still at the best prices.

Cannot recommend highly enough.

Emailed RilSki school before we flew out to Borovets to discuss who needed ski and snowboarding lessons. Georgi got in touch the very next day via a phone call to talk about everyone's abilities and what he would need from us before hand e.g everyone's hight and shoe sizes so they could kit us all out as soon as we arrived. 4 people in out group had Georgi himself for 3 days Ski lessons and my son who was on his own in a 1 on 1 snowboarding lesson.... they all came on leaps and bounds and with the 3 days the were all skiing unaided with my 11 year boy snowboarding down black runs within 3 days of lessons. Georgi was really patient,friendly and funny to the whole group. The guys at the shop couldn't be more helpful and friendly, letting us leave our walking boots and ski helmets in there locked cellar after each day for the entire time we were there. They even gave me a free service and wax complimentary on my own skis before I came home! Already booked again for next year and told RilSki that we will be back for more ski hire soon!

Thanks Rilski

Our first trip to Borovets with 3 children ages 8, 5 and 3. We booked a private lesson with Georgi. Georgi split the lesson and spent 1 hour teaching the 2 younger boys to ski then the next 2 hours teaching the 8 year old and my wife. It was the perfect solution and the younger boys learned much more than they would have in the ski kindergarten. They all can't wait to go back next year. Georgi is a brilliant instructor and great with the children.

We also hired skis for 1 adult and 3 children. We dreaded the ski fitting based on our previous experiences in other resorts with big queues and taking an hour or two to get all the gear - We turned up at Rilski and within 10 minutes the professional staff had the whole family fitted with skis, boots and helmets - I have never experienced such great service in any other ski hire shop.

The team at Rilski serviced my snowboard - again, this was the best service the board has ever had. It was like a new board after the service.

Massive thanks to all the team at Rilski for helping us all have an amazing holiday. We have already booked to come back next year. Best ski school/ski hire shop I have experienced and very reasonable prices.

We emailed before we flew out and managed to organise ski equipment hire and lessons for 8 people over 6 days. George was an amazing teacher for us as beginners and managed to teach us a lot skills and techniques over roughly 2-3 hours per day for 2x days. The service here was amazing, warm and welcoming! My friends and I would highly recommend visiting George and Georgi for lessons and equipment! We had such an epic experience and we will most definitely be back to Borovets Ski Resort and will definitely pay George and Georgi another visit! Thanks for making our experience wonderful guys!!!

So we booked a ski holiday to borovets 1st time skiing in 35 years so booked some lessons with rilski in the Uk via the internet and had a couple of phone conversations.
When we arrived to rilaski we were greeted by a guy called George with a friendly smile.
Quick introduction to every in our group and off we go to the rila learner slope.
George got stuck in to getting us on our feet and snowploughing within 10 mins we went through our group 1 by 1 in in what seemed like no time at all had us on the first ski lift to the top of the green slope and ski down to the bottom of the ski lift ready to go again my god is this man good he is patient, funny and totally chilled out
I had lessons for 2 days then he took me up to a higher piste and skied down with me he pushed me to ski to the best of my ability and totally made mine and my family’s holiday.
George if you read this your top guy and thank you again for making the holiday one to remember and hopefully see we we come back .
If you need lessons he’s ya man cheers again Dean

Peter was my snowboard instructor and kept the lessons fun, but challenging. Mixed the slopes during all the five days and even went for the powder, as it was available. So it is little chance to get bored or even too accustomed with a single slope.

Most important it improved my riding not only in regard to the position, giving precise feedback, but rethinking it entirely, as he gave great pointers to assess the weather conditions, slope inclination and snow type.

Last but not least, had a great laugh and when something was not going according to the plan, reminded me to always relax:).

It was a great experience and definitely recommend Peter.

We recently went to Borovets for the first time, and skiing also for the first time, and George and George at RilSki helped us out in many ways: airport transfers, ski equipment rental, and of course the amazing private tuition for me and my family.
we were two beginner adults and two beginner under 7s, and we had 4 x 2 hour sessions with George, and by the end of the those, both children and both adults were getting down the slopes nicely. the whole experience was a pleasure. the lessons were fun, and George was so so helpful with us adults and especially the children.
even the booking process before we arrived was made easy by George always being available and calling back to confirm everything.
a team i would definitely recommend and use again!

Our second year in borovets and second year using the georgis at rilski. I have had lessons now from both George’s and they have both been great. I’m far from a relaxed and natural skier and I have no doubt that if I had been in a big group that I would have given up skiing by now.
I would definitely recommend 1-1 or small group teaching with rilski- they make sure that you are on the slopes before 10 so your time isn’t taken up waiting around in queues (watch this with the big ski schools).... they store your ski gear for free and its right opposite the gondola so can’t get any closer!!
We will be back again next year and will 100% be using rilski for ski hire and lessons again-wouldn’t go anywhere else now!

What a fantastic experience. George and George and their wonderful team gave us a first class service.
From when I first emailed George he telephoned me straight away to discuss our requirements and was absolutely brilliant.
We were 3 families of 14 all together and George organised everything for us from transfers, equipment and private small group lessons.
They are very thorough with the fitting and make sure you are 100% happy and comfortable in your boots. The equipment was all very new and very good quality.
They looked after us so well and are also really conveniently located right next to the gondola station.
My husband, daughter and myself had 6 x 2 hour lessons every day with the lovely Niko and our two youngest daughters had a private 2 hour lesson every day with the very kind and sweet Christina. We all thoroughly enjoyed our lessons and felt we all progressed really well.
We are hoping to come back to Borovets next year and we will most certainly be returning to this company.
Thank you again.

I had my first ever Ski Lesson with George. He is an amazing instructor, very professional and a really cool guy. I really couldn’t believe how quickly I progressed. I strongly recommend you take private lessons with this guy. The level of instruction is extremely high and with this school you get real value for money.
