Winter resorts make investments despite crisis

Winter resorts make investments despite crisis

Ski resorts in Bulgaria are busy preparing for the upcoming winter season. Besides the traditional cleaning of ski runs, some resorts have made additional investments, despite the hard economic situation, a Pari daily's survey shows.

The concessionaire of Borovets's ski runs, Borosport, has invested EUR 40 million this year. The concessionaire in Bansko, Yulen, has spent BGN 2 million on ski run improvements. New snowmaking systems have been installed in Pamporovo and Chepelare. Vitosha Ski will prepare the ski runs in Vitosha Mountain within a couple of weeks.

It is still early to say if there will be enough tourists in winter, because most bookings are made at the very last moment, hotel managers and tour operators said. Weathercasters predict a snowy winter. (
