A new complex with three ski slopes and two lifts is now officially opened, just 3 km away from the town of Kotel.
The owner of the winter facility- Dimitar Karanashev, defines the complex as a ski center for beginners. He says that all those who are making first steps in these sports, can use a small track with minimal slope where professionals from the complex are going to teach them. The place is suitable for young children with sleds. On the second level, there is a ski slope of 200 meters where the skiers can exercise the technique of riding in various disciplines. The third level is a slope with 30 degrees inclination and length of 300 meters where the extreme skiers can show their skills.
Dimitar Karanashev explains that the ski runs have been prepared by a professional machine “RA Track” and embarking on the high slopes is secured by reliable ski lifts. This week the ski complex begins working from 10 to 17 hours. Prices for using the ski lifts are – for children up to 7 years – free; for children 7 to 10 years – 5 lev per day; for all others – 10 lev per day. It will be offered ski rental at reasonable prices. Sledding and skiing is for free if you don’t use the lifts. There are no snowmobiles, ATVs and other machines allowed.
The ski complex near Kotel is one and a half hours driving from the coast which also gives the opportunity to all the people who are living on the seaside, to enjoy skiing instead of driving all day to reach one of the other ski resorts which are hundreds and hundreds kilometers away.
