Hotels in Pamporovo

Pamporovo Weather in Pamporovo


With Borovets and Bansko, Pamporovo forms part of the trio of major Bulgarian ski resorts. Second-largest of the three, it is also the southernmost and the sunniest. It was purpose-built under Communism, with large hotels set at the base of pine-forested pistes. While the resort covers a larger area than Borovets, it lacks the village atmosphere of Bansko, and has fewer après-ski facilities.

As it is geared to catering for large groups, the resort has long attracted Western European tourists on cheap package holidays. With gentle slopes, Pamporovo is suitable for beginners and intermediate skiers, but offers little to challenge the more advanced.

With snow from December to mid-April, the resort is crowded during the winter season. In summer, by contrast, it is virtually deserted, despite the beauty of the landscape at that time of year and the efforts of tour operators to promote mountain biking and hiking here.
For spectacular views at any time of year, visitors can take the chairlift to Mount Snezhanka. The Television Tower on the summit, at a height of 1,926 m (6,320 ft), has an observation gallery.

Pamporovo is the largest resort of the Rhodopes. It is located 260 km from Sofia and 85 km from Plovdiv, it has an altitude of 1,650 m. Most trails start from the highest point of the mountain.  It is well suited both for beginners and experienced skiers. The ski trails of the resort can be used by snowboarders. There are conditions for rough terrain rides. A half-pipe facility is also available for snowboarders. Early in 2010 Pamporovo hosted Pamporovo Freestyle Open with participants from Bulgaria and other European countries.
