Resort Information

Best for:

Will your school ski group be made up of a number of beginners and/or younger students? Are you looking for a resort that offers great value for money? Then a school ski trip to Bulgaria's Pamporovo could be exactly what you’re looking for!

A modern ski resort in the Rhodopi Mountains, Pamporovo is just two hours from Bulgaria’s second city, Plovdiv. With a winter wonderland backdrop of snow-covered pine forests, Pamporovo really does look like something out of a fairy tale. Benefiting from a mild climate and over 120 days of sunshine during a typical ski season (December to late April), this resort is ideal for skiing in comfort and is a pleasure to learn in.

Skiing Information

There are plenty of easy slopes at Pamporovo, which will allow your beginners to develop their skills and grow in confidence as the week progresses. But don’t worry, there’s plenty for intermediate skiers too, with lots of challenging slopes for them to get their teeth into. Although this resort is ideal for the less experienced skiers, any advanced skiers in the group will also find a few challenges waiting for them, including ‘The Wall’ (a steep mogul field) and the giant slalom run. Boasting the only half-pipe in the Balkans, Pamporovo is also a good option for snowboarders.

I love being able to put together exciting packages to offer school groups the opportunity to do what they love while soaking up another culture. – Ben McCafferty Head of Sales & Product

Don't take our word for it …

The skiing available in Arinsal at Easter was excellent and the opportunity for pupils to travel over to Pal was a great addition to their skiing experience. All instructors spoke excellent English and progressed even the very beginners group to skiing from the top of the mountain. — St. Brigid's School
