A winter vacation in the mountains skiing, having fun in the daylight and warming beside the fireplace in the evening arguably is one of the best ways for a family to spend some time together. Many resorts known for their strong activity during the cold months try to sculpt a profile of a “mummy, daddy and the tribe” friendly type of resort so it’s not an easy task to gain some recognition. This is why the mention of Pamporovo among the top 10 options for a winter family vacation – a selection made by the British newspaper “The Guardian” draws more respect for the Rhodopes located resort. The atmosphere and the combined value of the Pamporovo ski pass, equipment hire, and accommodation play a key role for the Bulgarian winter centre to gain in popularity every year.
Planning your next winter holiday? If you want to be far from the madding crowd of the Alps and stay on a budget, well, you need to look in a more unconventional place. Bulgaria is known for its affordable ski resorts, but the country can offer a lot more to the adventurous visitor who decides to set foot on their picturesque slopes. There are three main resorts with excellent slopes and nice hotel options. But if you prefer plenty of sun and blue skies while brushing off the pistes, then you should definitely head off to Pamporovo. The resort prides itself on being one of the sunniest in Europe. Combined with gentle slopes and acclaimed ski schools and you have the perfect place for beginners.
