Had an excellent weeks skiing here from 8th - 15th January 2017, the slopes catered well for our party of intermediate skiers although it would suit beginners well too, look forward to when Pamporovo joins Mechi Chal (by ski lift) as there are some very nice runs over in the Chepelare area. Would I recommend it yes and will I... More

Cannot fault this place - 5 times I've been now. Fantastic snow, friendly people and soooo cheap. Less than £1000 for two people including ski hire, tuition and lift passes. New resort at Chepalare means more variety of runs aswell!

Popped up the road to see what Pamporovo had to offer. Our Daughter had private snowboard lessons her a while ago. Utterly beautiful. Typical Bulgarian mayhem with parking etc. Found a table and had inexpensive cappucinos in stunning conditions. It was very busy, good snow, good everything. I will book lessons here.

Beautiful scenery and good equipment. Feels like you're in Austria for a fraction of the cost. Slopes could be steeper though..

Located at ~1600 meters altitude, surrounded by large pine trees forest, Pamporovo is a very popular ski resort. It provides a good number of hotels, and 6 lifts for skiing. If you take lift No 6 you can go up to the TV tower which has a restaurant at it's top level. Prices are average. Location is great. Good food... More

In Pamporovo there is a variety of ski slopes. There are green slopes for beginners - perfect if you are a beginner in ski or snowboard, even better for the skiers, because of the flat parts on the slopes. But there are also blue, red and black slopes perfect for pro skiers and snowboarders. There are also enough lifts so... More

Another brilliant skiing and boarding holiday in Pamps - we love this place. Snow conditions were excellent this year which meant that even Blue 9 run was open, though not every day, so ensure you watch out for signs saying it is closed, as it would be a very long walk back if the old 2 man, wooden,lift wasn't working!!...

We had a lovely time on the slopes, would highly recommend for the skiing and value for money. Do go to both resorts, it worth the short bus ride

This is a very nice ski resort although it is great in the summer too. The nature is really beautiful and it's a nice place to just relax and recharge your batteries.
