  1. As far as I remember Papmporovo is close to Plovdiv. I went to both Pamporovo and Plovdiv and liked them a lot. I am a beginner skier and for me it’s not very important to spend my time in the ski resort. I like exploring nature. Nature in this place is lovely, great scenery and landscapes. It is relaxing, worth going again.

    • Hi Glenn, yes you are right. Plovdiv is close to Pamporovo, around 85 km but it takes 1 hour 30 min to drive there. The road is mountainous with great view.

  2. This looks beautiful! We don’t get the same scenic ski resorts over here in New Zealand, and hardly any tree skiing at all. Pamporovo looks very scenic. That’s great it offers night skiing too – something more resorts around the world need to get into!
