I enjoyed skiing in Borovets! Unfortunately half of the slopes were closed as I visited it at the end of the season and the snow quality was poor.

I'd never been to a ski resort or been skiing before I visited borovets and I'm pleased to say I wasn't disappointed. It was absolutely stunning. A good place for beginners and experts alike. Lots of places to stop for a drink and a good meal. The locals were all very friendly.
