NY 2003

Rila mountain is 2700m high, with a well developed network of chair lifts, tow bars and one gondola that takes you to the top. Difficult to medium pists, well maintained, some with snow machines. I was there for NY 2003, only 25cm of snow but still got 7 days of good skiing up top. The village is small and full of pubs, clubs, bars, erstaurants and shops so there's nightlife to be found. Bulgarian version of funky -good fun....met lots of people... Can get everything there, lots of hotels, lodges, ski schools and rentals. wherever you go everyone is trying to sell you something - especially if you speak English (the place was full of Brits). Haggle for everything. Try Bulgarian food. Learn a few words of Bulgarian, may get you a long way. Stay away from Bulgarian brandy.
