quite ok

Mon 16 February 2004 by mikelangelo

I've tried couple of times the slopes, and in general they are ok. The promised 3 meters of snow is probably available after Jan till March. In general it makes a good value for money as you could stay in Sofia for just a few bucks with descent accomodation and lots of activities for the evenings and take public transport to rach the slopes. Pros: +Excellent conditions if there is enough snow +Great all round activities in the near by city of Sofia +More than descent prices Cons: -Tricky weather conditions. You'd better check the forecast and snow before going there -Too many people during the weekends. -No whatsoever snow parks. -You'd better bring your own gear as the rental one sucks.
