Whilst this is welcome news for many tourists seeking a great value last minute holiday in one of Bulgaria's premier ski resorts, a thought must be spared for the thousands of Bulgarians whose towns and cities are not as thankful for the snow and are currently having to deal with a number of emergency situations. Our thoughts are with those who have been affected by the snow conditions and we would like to voice our appreciation to the many teams of emergency workers aiding and assisting the locals as they deal with the situation.
If you're heading off to Bulgaria skiing this week, please take care on the slopes and enjoy your time in the snow but please do not go off piste as there is a significant risk of avalanches due to the snowfall.
