    Hi everyone!

    I'm new to ski touring but with a group of friends we would like to take a shot at it, I read about free riding in Bulgaria (peaks up to 2900m) and I was wondering if anyone has experience doing so?

    We're looking to go mid March this year, I've found a guide who is willing to arrange everything. Prices are cheap compared to the Alps that why I'm asking. Is this too good to be true or is March still a good period in Bulgaria? And is Bulgaria any good for free riding/ski touring?

    I'm really interested in hearing about anyone's experiences of Bulgaria!

    Hi, I've never been to Bulgaria in winter but I know about a skiers from Czech Republic that used to go there every winter for freeriding/tuoring. So based on the fact that they kept comming to Bulgaria I think it is a good destination. Type "smowalterna" in google and look for videos with "balcan rallye". It is in Czech but will give you at least some insight about the terrains. They skied in Rila and Pirin.
