In order to participate in this adventure you need to be:
~ Day 1: Sofia – Malyovitsa area ~
A 1,5 hours drive will take us from the capital Sofia to Malyovitsa, a valley in the northwestern parts of Rila Mountains and one of the best ski touring areas. We’ll skin up at 1760 up to 1940 to reach Malyovitsa Hut, where we will stay for the night. We have a couple of options for the rest of the day: to climb The Camel Peaк or Popova Kapa Peak or warm with a half day of off piste skiing using Malyovitsa ski zone lifts along with some training with the avalanche equipment.
~ Day 2: Malyovitsa Peak ~
We start from the hut and climb the beautiful Malyovitsa Peak (+800), then go down the valley. Our second climb for the day might be the Nameless Peak which also has good slopes to ski down. Drive to the village of Govedartsi (20 min) and stay overnight in a family hotel.
~ Day 3: Musala Peak – Sofia ~
20 min drive will take us to the ski resort of Borovets, located in the foot of Mount Musala (2925 m). We take the gondola lift up to 2400 and then climb for 3 hours in order to reach the peak. We’ll ski all the way down to 1300 and than drive back to Sofia (1,5 hours).
