In 2016, for the first time in Bulgaria, two neighbouring ski areas Pamporovo and Mechi Chal united and started operating jointly with a common ticketing and transport system.
The union aims to create the largest winter sports center in the Balkans, actively using the available natural resources and enabling the country to host prestigious international sporting events.
Both resorts offer a common lift pass, which gives access to all ski and snowboard slopes and facilities.in Pamporovo and Mechi Chal.
Regular specialized ski buses serve both ski areas and provide transfer for all tourists. Separate stops and signposts provide information about the current schedule and movement of ski buses in real time.
The ski areas in both resorts provide extremely good conditions for practising winter sports. The slopes are of varying difficulty (green, blue, red and black) suitable for all ages and skill levels, for both beginners and experts.
Pamporovo is one of the best ski centers for beginners with the longest green ski slope in Bulgaria.
Mechi Chal ski area is a challenge for intermediate and professional skiers, as the main slope in the resort is red.
