Good afternoon,

Somebody knows when the ski station of Vitosha will be open this year?

Thank you

We live right under the mountain and close to the lift

The snow really only started yesterday but I guess it should be soon. I'll reply again as soon as I find out. Unfortunately their web site hasn't been updated for a while but it CLAIMS that the Dragalevtsi lift is already open. However, the Simoeonovo lift isn't yet and the webcams on the site show no-one on the pistes...

BTv said it's due to open this coming week-end, since they have more than enough snow up there already. However, things have been known to change....

And they have changed

Latest update is that there isn't quite enough snow so the pistes will open next week-end (22nd December). I'll post more if I hear anything...

Well, it's looking good for those who want to pay good money to travel up the mountain so they can slide back down to where they started!

If the fog lifts, don't forget to wave - we're the ones sitting in the warm by the lit Xmas tree with a nice glass of wine and watching people trying to avoid broken bones and frostbite

Have fun!
