In order to participate in this adventure you need to be:
This program is suitable for people that don’t need so much of technical skiing and rather enjoy being in the mountains in winter, without doing any challenging slopes.
~ Day 1 ~
1,5 hours drive from Sofia to Pionerska Hut in Rila Mountains. We get the lift up to 2140 m at Rila Lakes Hut and skin up. We ascent up to 2700 at Otovitsa Ridge for about 3-3,5 hours and ski down to the hut. Some nice slopes around the hut will give us additional opportunity to skin up and go down in the afternoon. The night we spend in Ivan Vazov Hut – 2300m.
~ Day 2 ~
There are a few options (depending on conditions) to ski back down to the starting point at Pionerska Hut. We will ensure you have more than a 1000 m of descent on nice slopes. We’ll visit the thermal pools at Sapareva Banya village at the end of the adventure. Transfer back to Sofia – 1,5 hours.
How do we source our prices:
Please note negotiating prices is not always possible.
Essentially we are a price, availability and itinerary comparison site that helps people meet their adventure needs and save time along with providing extra customer service and consultation on top of the services you receive. All of this is free of charge as commission is taken from the suppliers.
Please keep in mind that the conditions in the hut are quite basic – dormitories, no hot water, no shower, only a limited choice of food and drinks are offered.
