Hi Richard

I'm not sure on the answer to this, however we have a Facebook Group set up to help with just such questions. I know for sure that some of the members have bought in the resort, so should be able to help you. Just click to join and I'm sure someone will know. It's called 'Borovets 2017-Snow, skiing, boarding and everything else - information group'.

Regards

Far cheaper in resort, lots of good ski shops, around 30% cheaper sometimes more.

There are lots of good places to buy from in Borovets.
Our choice would be from Stefan who has his shop in the Samokov hotel or from Rosignol, their shop is in Iglika 2 building behind the Rila hotel.
They will normally give you discount if you say we recommended you.

Hi Gerry / Sandra
Would you have any contact details for Stefan? Name of shop, email, website? I would like to try and establish if he has what I require before I travel next week

Thank You

Richard

Hi Richard, Stefan's shop is easy to find when you are here in the Samokov Hotel.
I do not know if he has a website but will ask him when I see him.
