Dates : Programme organized on request for a group of 4 persons minimum - Dates to decid with the group.

I

The highlights : Luxurious accommodation in a 4-star hotel with spa and indoor pool.

                            Excellent snow with almost guaranteed powder in January and February.

                            The biggest attraction compared to other resorts in which we ski is that virtually nobody skis off-piste in Bulgaria.

                            So plenty of untracked powder slopes await you…

Off piste skiing and ski touring in the powder of Carpathian mountains

i

Bulgaria’s continental climate, with very cold winters combined to the humidity of the Black Sea, results in a quantity and quality of powder snow seldom seen now in the western Alps.

i

The resort of Bansko, at the base of the Pirin mountains at 2 hours drive from Sofia, is a quaint little town which has benefited from large investments to modernise its infrastructures, and its many ski-lifts are now on a par with the Alps.

i

Summits around 3000m provide exciting descents with vertical drops of nearly 1000m and beautiful touring opportunities, while large and well spaced out forests offer sheltered off-piste tree-skiing.

i

As only very few adventure out of the slopes, most powder runs remain untouched for days, and the ones who venture further have the mountain all to themselves.
