Chepelare Skiing (near to Pamporovo)

Postby Carole » Thu Aug 30, 2007 5:18 pm

I am not a skier but has anybody tried Chepelare. I think the lifts are very old and basic but it is the longest ski run in Bulgaria but never seems to get mentioned

Spent plenty of time there but not Snowboarded yet. Will do though. There is a theory that one day it will be connected to Pamporovo. Looking at their new piste map it looks possible and there is a new cabin marked on there.

Hi Tigriff,
We havnt visited the ski factory in Chepelare,but often wodered if it would be cheaper?
Tonys brother got his from ebay,not sure what he paid but i know it was a bargain.
Also it costs about £20 (each way) for carriage with wizzair so if you dont leave them at your house you will have to pay this each time!!
i have sent you email

you can sometimes blag the skis on for free on the outward journey by telling them you will waiver their insurance as you will have your own. Did this myself after speaking to a guy called Chris in Poland Wizz office. He said it's free if i was ok with it.

ski at Chepelere

Ski slopes to right of main road as you go out of the town. Nice lady who speaks English in the tourist info centre to the left of main road in the centre/ shop/restaurant area. Hope this helps. Don't ask me about skiing though, I have all on staying on my feet at the best of times.
