SKI RUNS IN BOROVETS
Borovets is divided in to two main areas. The slopes and runs are normally maintained in good condition and are designed with international markings and multilingual signs. Firstly, directly above the resort are the lift-linked slopes of Sitnyakovo and Martinovi Baraki. Served by two top-to-bottom chairs, with four drags and another shorter chair (servicing a ski jump) making up the rest of the uplift here, the terrain is largely easy to intermediate level stuff, cut down through the trees. Do not be too off-put by the fact that virtually all the terrain is graded 'red'. These are not the same steep reds of Austria and Switzerland - more like a French blue. The lower section of the mountain forms the nursery area, conveniently close to the village centre and much of the accommodation. The second ski area is at Yastrebets, reached by a wonderful 5km/3 mile long gondola ride by a six seater. This accesses the resort's most testing terrain, which includes three runs which are used for international competitions. There are long reds, and a World Cup black beneath the upper section of the gondola, which will take you back to the gondola base station, mid station or to the resort's only T bar, and a very long one it is. Alternatively you can continue over to the Markudjika area. This is served by six short and parallel button tows and accesses the highest skiing in the resort and the only above-tree-line area, also known as the Moussala basin. Naturally it holds snow the longest. One of the runs here, Markudjik 3, has been approved by the International Skiing Federation (FIS) for giant slalom competitions.
