    Great place to come for a quick snowboard fix ! This time of year the pistes are very quiet the sun is out and there’s plenty of snow on the ground .
    Night ski is great just watch out as it’s only one lift and at the bottom the green piste goes across the red also getting on and off the lift is really Icey!
    I mainly stick to the Yastrbets Gondala
    It’s quieter than the other lifts as it’s mainly blue and red runs so not too many beginners . If you board down from the top you can take the ski paths on the right hand side to the mid station gondola otherwise just carry on down to the express or then take a forest route back to the main base .The Musala pathway is probably one of the best runs I’ve ever done! Really long with loads of turns which is great fun , don’t do it last thing as it turns to ice !
    The only downsides are the lift aren’t close to each other so you have to walk , everything here is cheap so stopping for a coffee and a sandwich doesn’t cost the earth like the alps. I’ll be back next year !

    We had a wonderful experience with this ski school. Matt looked after us extremely well. We’re a huge group of 16 children. We booked through here because after having some private lessons last year and chatting to them we were assured the group size would be no more than 8. This has pleased us in previous years the group sizes in other schools were too big. We had miko and George who were both incredible with the kids. So much so we’ve decided to change our plans for bansko and come back to borovets! Thanks for a fabulous week

    Down-Hill trails with plenty of forest-trails , all goes in a Harry-potter style forest , passing deep berms, loads of roots, steep slopes, wooden bridges and ramps, and even extreme road-gaps that were too much for me :(

    We have visited Black Rock many times in all weathers, this time in the snow was a stunning view but also to remember why it is there and remember those poor souls lost.

    Just finished our first yearly ski vacation in Borovets. After getting recommendations we went with George & George from Rilski. We rented the equipment and took private guide for ourselves.
    The experience was just excellent George the guide stayed with us after lesson to help us improve our skills and the equipment was just amazing and included the Most expensive brands such as salmon, rosignol etc..
    Another important thing is the perfect location of their ski depot which was just 2 steps from the Gondola.. the closest depot to the Gondola. It saved us a lot of efforts carrying the ski.
    If you’re in Borovets don’t miss Rillski

    I had George Kotev as my teacher. With me (I am someone who can ski ok then suddenly head goes and can't ski at all) and the rest of our group he was truly excellent. He had the patience of a saint with the whole group and was a great personality. In my group there were a few of us that could be ok skiing one minute, useless the next. Big confidence issues. The ones that were more confident were either swapped to a better level group or went off by themselves. Plus some were brought into our group due to their lack of confidence. This was great as we could all support each other with the help of George when our heads hit difficulties. Plus we were all of a similar standard so nobody was holding the group back or advancing too fast . Sorry this review is such a long time after but thanks George Kotev.

    In my experience of many years traveling to Borovets for skiing holidays Balkan PMS offer the most professional and reliable service for all aspects of your holiday. Transfers always on time and in very clean and new vehicles, accommodation always as described and lovely people to do business with. Very highly recommended

    Staff all pretty helpful but Vladimir the instructor stood out. Within a couple of hours he had our family group all basically snowboarding. He was lovely with the kids and was very encouraging and funny. Would definitely recommend him.

    My husband and I arrived with our 2 children ( 9 and 10) who have never been skiing before. We used Hunters ski school for beginners for the children and we booked the intermediate class for ourselves for 3 days. Yuri was our ski instructor and he was a Borovets native. He was such a patient, experienced instructor who was a fountain of knowledge, never tiring after the amount of relentless questions I asked him. He taught us so much and our ski technique improved immensely. Unfortunately on our last day my husband was taken out by a snow boarder. Yuri remained calm throughout calling mountain rescue. Taken this into account we hope to be back and would definitely ask if we could have Yuri as our ski instructor!
    My childrens ski instructor was an English lady called Sandra.We were dumbfounded when they were completing red runs on day 3! Unfortunately the family ski run we envisaged didnt happen as planned due to my husband’s injury, which gives us all the more reason to return!
    Thanks so much Hunters and Yuri and Sandra- you were both Fab!!

    Used these guys both times for when visiting. Good quality kit, quick and efficient set up.
    Only downside was the walk from our hotel (Rila) but it wasn’t that far, just the hill on ski boots isn’t great fun with little kids
