Friendly, well organized resort, offers great choice for all levels of skiers, good mix of green, blue, red and black runs. Super value. Great food.
The newly merged resort of Mechi Chal is only accessible from pamporova with free bus shuttle (about 10mins drive). when new planned lift is installed between both resorts this will be the best resort in Bulgaria.

Full review

I skied pamps for the 1st time Jan 2018 with my family of 5. Skills range from careful intermediates who like blue runs to advanced 10 + years experienced all terrain skiers. I did not expert the terrain to be challenging for me or my sons who are more likely to hit red or black runs. We were all pleasantly surprised by the variety. Pamps markets itself as a begginers area with around 300m of vertical for the resort (from there own website). Whilst this is true for Studenets area, they dont mention that Malina has 500m vertical with most runs red or black and superb. Also similiar vertical is available on stoykite area with a number or runs >3kms. From 2017 the neighbor resort of Mechi Chal is available on your pamp ticket via free bus. This hill offers over 700m (2200ft) vertical and some really nice red/black terrain. Also a bonus is that around 80% of resort has snowmaking so good skiing is available even if natural snow is lacking. The resort is cheaper and less crowded than other bulgarian resorts and the whole family loved it.
