Description

Ski touring and split-boarding hut-to-hut tours in the Rila mountains in Bulgaria is an amazing experience. Join me on this 2-day hut-to-hut program. If you have a good backcountry skiing technique, you can enter the mysterious kingdom of these fantastic mountains!

On this program, we will face the Rila mountains equipped with touring skis, splitboard or snowshoes. During this 2-day tour we will go on incredible descents, away from the crowds of ski resorts. Plus, as a local guide and expert, I will make sure that you get the safest experience in the mountains.

The Rila mountain range is where the highest peaks in Bulgaria are located. It has over 130 summits above the 2000 m, being Mount Mussala (2925m) the highest.

The Rila mountains offer great freeride skiing and ski touring conditions. They also offer several options to choose from, to be decided based on the  skill level of the participants, and the weather conditions.

On our first day we will transfer to the Borovetz ski resort, where our ascent will begin. Once at the top, and after passing the Ledeno Ezero Hut, we will enjoy a 1550 m descent. On the second day, we will get to the Maliovitza hut, and ascend the Maliovitza Peak (2729 m). Then, we will pursue a great 1,000 m descent.

Have a look at the detailed itinerary below.
