“Let’s not sugar-coat it, skiing and snowboarding are expensive pastimes. From the gear to the lift passes, indulging your beloved winter hobby can seriously take its toll on your wallet. Perhaps that’s why Bulgaria is rising in popularity as one of the hottest European ski destinations. Compare the cost of a ski trip here with one to a well-known ski resort in France or Switzerland and the difference can run into the thousands.

But does choosing an affordable Bulgarian resort mean you pay a price when it comes to the quality of your holiday? Can the skiing possibly match up to the Alps? Will you find the lively après-ski you’re after? Are there family-friendly activities to keep the kids entertained? Happily, the answer is a resounding yes.

We wanted to find out which of Bulgaria’s top two resorts – Bansko and Borovets – has the most to offer? Get ready for the Great Bulgaria Ski Resort-Off (in no way inspired by a certain baking programme…)

Will the winner be Bansko or Borovets?”
