Showing or raining in Borovets

Is it snow or rain as it's not clear from webcams?

Looks obvious - raining at resort level and snowing above about 1900m - as per the forecasts.
Use this webcam that is outside the Rila -

It showed it snowing yesterday morning, then it turned to rain in the afternoon and looks as if it has rained since.
Another extremely poor ski season in Borovets!

re:Showing or raining in Borovets

It doesn't look obvious to me. Forecasts are normally wrong and the webcams look more like mist eveywhere

Thanks for your help anyway

re:Showing or raining in Borovets

If you look at the webcam outside the Rila and the Popangelov webcam on this site, you can see that there is less snow than yesterday and more dirt patches.
The webcam page on this site shows the weather at each cam station. Up to Sitnyakovo Express it shows rain.
Sune, who is in the resort at present, posted yesterday that it is heavy rain at resort level.

When I left Bobbys Bar yesterday around 6o'clock the heavy rain turns into Snow. So I thought there have to be enough snow to have a great time.

re:Showing or raining in Borovets

Arrived in a very wet Sofia yesterday and arrived in Borovets a couple of hours ago. It is not snowing and although it has been,I certainly do not think it was the metre or so people were hoping for!
I would call it a light covering from what I have seen and the resort seems quiet which might actually be a plus for some people ,although not the poor bar and cafe owners I know.
Tomorrow I will have more idea of how much is open and what quality the runs are but fingers crossed it does ...

Tomorrow I will have more idea of how much is open and what quality the runs are but fingers crossed it does look quite "snow like" with grey skies and quite low temperatures.
