Bansko or Borovets?

Hi, My friend and I are looking at a ski break mid to late March for approx 5/6 nights. Bulgaria seems to be good value with decent accommodation. We are looking for intermediate skiing, close proximity accommodation to the slopes (i.e. walking and not bus) and a variation of nightlife, with casual lively bars and restaurants. Any recommendations will be appreciated. Thanks

Hi there! I think Bansko would suit you slightly better. It's bigger, so - more pubs, restaurants etc., but also more crowded and the slopes are better. Enjoy!

Bansko is better as it is higher with lots of good value bars restaurants etc also there are more slopes. Only thing is late March seems a bit late to me to go to Bulgaria, although I've never been then so someone might know better than me. At that time of year I tend to go for Tinges, Val thorens, St Anton or Cervinia. I know these places can be pricey but if you hunt around they are not too bad and snow is virtually guaranteed. Hope this helps, cheers

Late March is very late for bulgaria but you may be lucky. If you can travel sooner it would be better.

If you look at the snow depth history its usually gone or nearly gone by april.
