Good beginners and intermediate resort with a very long run down through the mountain. Snow conditions were OK a little slushy however the guys worked wonders overnight. Food was very good and very well priced. Bars here are quieter from other resorts. Would visit again with beginners

We've just been to Pamporovo for a family ski holiday. We are first time skiers and had the best experience through this ski school. The staff were amazing, gave us a quote first then let us adjust the lessons day by day according to abilities. Each day you walk in, the staff physically put your skis on, store your shoes... More

On the top of the Snejanka peak you have several options for taking the downhill and each one of them is equipped with a lift. This place look like lots of fun for the lovers of winter sports.

Ski school was excellent for both skiers and snowboarders, plenty of cafes/eateries scattered around the site and the ski lifts are not too scary

Relatively nice prices for ski pass and ski equipment. The pistes are wide and well prepared - groomed. Artificial snow machines covers the most of the pistes. English speaking Personnel but Only!!! the Basics. Ski chalets are nice. Most of Lifts are quite old but fast enough to take to the top at a logical time, 4-6 minutes. Only one... More

We went here as pretty much beginners, having only skied for one day before. We knew in theory the basics but the ski school was excellent in showing us how it's done properly. We headed off pretty early having gotten the grasp and spent 2 days on the green slope. The green slope is 5km long & is excellent. We... More

If you want to spend a little time in the nature, this is the right decision! Go skiing or just take a walk. I'm sure you won't regret. If the prices are too high, bring a sandwich with you. And of course tea. You can't miss it. Don't worry if you can't ski, there are teachers, who are really polite... More
