Skiing and Snowboarding in Bulgaria & Beyond

skiing in Carinthia, AustriaTheSkiBug is now in its third reincarnation, focusing on Bulgaria’s ski resorts, mainly Borovets, where we now have a winter home and spend much of the ski season.

We started out in the French Alps (the Three Valleys, specifically Courchevel) offering airport transfers and chalet and apartment management and cleaning. We operated a successful business for 3 years in France and had a fabulous time. The ski-ing is amazing and we will definitely return one day to visit friends and ski the Three Valleys again.

However, after a few years operating in the ski resorts around the Three Valleys and Tarantaise area, we decided a change was in order and after a bit of online research and travelling, settled on the far south of Austria and the region of Carinthia, close to the ski resort of Nassfeld. We spent an enjoyable couple of seasons exploring the different ski areas and renovating our house there, but our circumstances changed and it was time to move on again.

This time (and hopefully the last move) was back to Bulgaria permanently, where we have had a summer home for several years and run a charity to help stray and abandoned dogs in Bulgaria and we also have a neutering charity. We are very pleased to announce that for every ski lesson booked with JohnSki through TheSkiBug, our charity TwitchyNoses will receive 10 levs for each hour lesson and 20 levs for a 2 hour lesson. Please mention TheSkiBug or TwitchyNoses when booking your lessons.

We are now settling into winter life in the Bulgarian mountains near Borovets. This website is evolving as our life and adventure in Bulgaria continue and as we explore new ski areas. We can personally recommend the ski accommodation and services mentioned on this site and hope to expand the site to be a good source of information on various ski resorts, focusing particularly on Borovets. This website is not run for profit or as a business, but purely to provide information.
