23 Feb 2012
Upper slopes 300cm/Lower slopes 210cm - good by any resort standards! (even the most expensive ones in the Alps or North America). Excellent on and off piste conditions!
Bansko is currently 155cm upper depth and 90cm lower depth.
Zell Am See in Austria currently has 220cm cover on the upper slopes but 50cm on the lower slopes.
This is much better than Kranjska Gora (60cm upper/30cm lower) or Bled (which does not have enough snow) in Slovenia!

The chalet is now FOR SALE. Contact the owner via this website. The sale will not affect further rental
bookings. Pamporovo is for the future (as well as today): Recently plans have been put in place to link Pamporovo's
Perelik peak with Smolyan and its lakes. There are also plans to link Pamprovo with Mechi Chai, the nearby ski resort at Chepelare. For those wanting to ski on longer red runs this will be a great bonus. Advanced skiiers and snowboarders can already ski/snowboard to Chepelare (wtih a guide/instructor). It is a short drive away. It is hoped this will transform the Rhodopi mountains into the biggest ski area in Bulgaria. The brand new Perelik Golf Course is being built at the foot of the Rhodopi Mountains.
A new motorway has recently been completed through the mountains linking Pamporovo with the Greek Aegean coast. Winter or summer , Bulgaria is the cheapest holiday destination in Europe.

Flexible arrival/departure dates can be accommodated. For more details see www.chaletsatpamporovovillage.com Refundable £100 security deposit is required . This would be held against breakages/damage and returned after your stay.
This ski chalet is FOR SALE.(Fully equipped and fully furnished as described). If interested please contact the owner via this website. Any sale will not affect further bookings.The chalet/area has investment potential. Most of the available land has been or is already being developed. Vast sums are being spent on tourism in Bulgaria, and in the further improvement of ski resorts and construction of Golf courses. Both apply to Pamporovo with the Perelik project, the intention of linking the resorts of Pamporovo with nearby Mechi Chai at Chepelare, and construction of the new motorway through the mountains linking Pamporovo to the Aegean coast of Greece.
The Pamporovo / Pamporovo Village area
Pamporovo is probably one of the three best places in the world to learn to ski. It is particularly suitable for beginners and children. It is also one of the three cheapest places in the world for skiing. It boasts an excellent ski school - possibly the best for beginners, and instructors speak good English. Ski hire and ski tuition are cheap when compared to anywhere else. A lift pass is about £100 and ski/board tuition is around £100 for 4 hours over 6 days. This compares favourably to anywhere (some European resorts charge £250for a lift pass during peak season).
For tuition and equipment hire we would recommend
The Snowshack - run by British enthusiasts/experts for snowboarding th
Both are based near the Hotel Marcony near ski centre 2, Malinas.
There is a connection between the two schools so families and groups can arrange to ski and boardwithout much separation. Both schools are one of the best reasons to come to Pamporovo.
Lessons (from beginner to advanced) are great value.
The nearest ski slopes are at the middle staion of Studenets, where you can find the Steve school.
There is also the Black Horse restaurant. The Black Horse is also well worth a visit in summer - there is a small children's playground and you can sit and eat outside with fantastic views.
Pamporovo offers excellent value for money and Bulgaria is the cheapest ski destination in Europe.. A three course meal out with wine can be less than £10 per person. Going for a coffee on the slopes will not set you back much. Shuttle buses run from the complex to the slopes/centre of Pamporovo. Ski equipment and snowboard equipment are available for rent. For the more advanced skiers Forest Nook provides a ski wardrobe room for your own ski equipment.There is a choice of intermediate runs, and for the advanced skier the "wall" black mogul run and some
interesting long reds. There is also an international slalom course to time yourself on.
Pamporovo has apres ski with value prices. Of note are:
The underground nightclub and discotheque at Forest Nook 3 nearby
BJs bar in the lobby of Hotel Perelik
Dak's Bar on the ground floor of Hotel Snejanka
Night Flight in Hotel Rojen. A new disco, the largest in Pamporovo. Very good party
Spider Night Club
The White Hart Pub in the centre of Pamporovo. Traditional pub good for party, good for food
from pub grub, bangers and mash to T bone steaks. Vegetarian pizza ande pasta dishes.
Restaurants in Smolyan offer excellent value. Try a traditional Bulgarian evening out at the Bacchus
restaurant with excellent food and staff in traditional dress and music. For good food at value prices
try the restaurant Rhodopsi Kat in Smolyan.
In summer Forest Nook can be an "away from it all" rural retreat . You can have a romantic relaxing holiday in
the beautiful mountains and visit the Smolyan Lakes which are very close. There are seven lakes of Smolyan - the largest and most beautiful being "Muddy Lake". A short 15km drive away towards the pretty town of Shriko Luca you will find the Yagodina Cave which in parts is several storeys high, and is the longest cave in Bulgaria.(total length 10 km).
You could take a tour here and see the spectacular stalactites and stalagmites and learn some history of the
Neolithic settlers who lived in the caves in the 6th millennium BC. There is a remarkable 42m waterfall in the Devil's Throat cave - so called because objects allowed to flow in do not flow out! The Trigradska River flows through the fantastic Dyavolskoto Gurlo (Devil's Throat) cave. Stretching 7,000 meters the water forms eighteen waterfalls and exits onto a canyon. It leads to the Trigad Gorge which is the most impressive natural sight in Bulgaria. Devin Spa is about a 35km Drive and worth a relaxing visit. Look out the the "elephant" natural rock formation nearby.
In Devin you will find the Vacha Dam/reservoir where you could water ski or alternatively Dospat Dam hosts a number of water sports in which you could partake.. Don't forget the water canyons in Smolyan: this is a breath taking walk with magnificent views, you could try abseiling down one of the water canyons.

hikes (with guide) and snowshoeing. In summer Via Ferrata, canoeing,caves, off road ATV, off road safari,excursions, mountain hiking, mountain biking, horse riding, Quad bikingBudget skiing in winter. Activity holiday in summer.

If you want excitement Arda is well worth a visit, there is caving, bungie jumping and a whole host of activities.
Quad bikes and bicycles are available to rent in Pamporovo and Smolyan.
For a little fun try paintballing at Smolyan Lakes or a day's fishing.
You may be able to horse ride to Greece from Arda.

There is a possibility of horse riding holidays/pony trekking trips; which would use the chalets as a base. Just a ten minute drive away (a car can be arranged to take you there and bring you back). There is a riding school which caters for both novice and advanced riders. You can ride into the surrounding forest for anhour or trek into the beautiful scenery of the Rhodopes for up to 3 days. Ask for the riding guide Stefan.
THe World Car Rally came to the Balkans for the first time in July 2010. There is plenty of exciting driving in the
Ancient Plovdiv is contemporary to Troy and there are Roman ruins and Roman roads. There is a Roman amphitheatre still in use today. The lovely old town has been restored to its mid 19th century appearance. Plovdiv is definitely worth a visit. Modern Plovdiv is Bulgaria's second city.
The children would appreciate a visit to the water park, Aqua Land in Plovdiv.
For those wanting to see more of Bulgaria, why not consider a two centre summer holiday with a week at the chalet and a week on the Black Sea coast. Most car rental firms will allow a pick up and drop off at different airports.
We are not far from the Greek Aegean coast.There is a new road through the mountains (via Zlatograd) to
Xanthi which will reduce the journey time to just 90 minutes. You can reach Chalkidiki in 3 hours. You could rent a place there for a few days, but at present you would have to return the hire car to a location in Bulgaria.Check your hire firm will accept use of the car across the border (some will). Kavala and Avdira are
nice beach destinations within a 4 hour drive. If you try www.bulgariacarrent.com they will arrange for you to pick up a car in Thessaloniki, although you will have to drop off the car/finish your holiday in Bulgaria. Most of all we recommend www.psl-bg for both car hire and cross border airport transfers.
