The climate of the winter sports regions in Bulgaria (Bulgaria)
The southwestern part of Bulgaria consists of mountains. It is much
colder in the Rila, Rhodope and Pirin mountain ranges than it is in
the rest of Bulgaria. During the winter these regions form a popular
winter sports destination. However, the amount of snow and
temperatures depend on the location you are in. In general, there is
enough snowfall to go on winter sports here during a longer period
of time. The most popular winter sports destinations are: Pamporovo,
Borovets, Bansko and Vitosha.
During the winter it may get really cold here, especially in the
regions located above an altitude of 2,000 meters. On several peaks
the snow doesnít melt till late spring. During the summer
temperatures rise to pleasant values. During this period the
mountains are very popular among walkers and hikers.
