which meant we could eat and drink as
much as we wanted without worrying.
ON THE PISTE
The next morning it was time to
squeeze into our boots, pick up
our skis and poles, and take the lift
up through the spruce forests to the
slopes. Pamporovo's ski school has
been voted as the best in Europe by
customers of tour operator Crystal,
and it was easy to see why.
Our eldest, Isla, really caught the
skiing bug, and couldn't wait to get on
the slopes each morning. Rachel and
I would pass her and the other novices
snowploughing down the blue runs,
each with a massive smile on their face.
Meanwhile, because Evelyn was an
absolute beginner, we booked her a
private lesson with a friendly Bulgarian
instructor called Chris (or Crisp, as she
called him). She eventually found her
feet on the nursery runs and had fun
in the kindergarten playing in the snow
with the other little ones.
APRES SKI
Back in Pamporovo itself, most of the
après-ski is provided by traditional
taverns called mehanas. Competition
is keen and touts stand outside the
pubs beckoning tourists to enter
and part with their Levs.
We headed for tea at The White
House - and with a pint of lager
costing around £1 and a large fresh
pizza under a fiver, it was easy to see
why Bulgaria has acquired its valuefor-money reputation.
After a week on the slopes, it was time
for Isla and Evelyn to say farewell to
their new friends. Although we were
sad to be leaving Pamporovo, we were
in celebratory mood on our final night
- and not just because we'd handed

78

our heavy ski boots in for the last
time - but because we'd had a brilliant
holiday in Bulgaria.
H O L I DAY H I G H L I G H T
Seeing Isla's confidence and skiing skills
progress over the seven days was
amazing. She began the week as a
nervous novice and ended it whizzing
down the slopes with mum and dad
struggling to keep up.
Special
beginner packages

for a spectacular 360º view
of Pamporovo. We spent an
afternoon on the terrace and enjoyed
soup and hot wine in the restaurant.
Crystal Ski Holidays (crystalski.co.uk)
offers a week's all-inclusive at the Hotel
Perelik in Pamporovo, with lunch on the
mountain and alcoholic drinks included
from £1,387 for a family of four. Flights
are available from all major UK airports.
