TOUR DESCRIPTION

Ascent:
This ski touring trip takes you to the highest peak of the Balkan peninsula, Musala at 2925 meters of altitude. The skin up can be shortened by taking a gondola ride to the upper parts of Borovets ski centre, from where the peak shows up. The gentle ski tour transforms into a sligthly more technical ascent in the last part, where boot crampons are much appreciated. There is a fixed cable to make this ascent safe, and soon you will be up on the roof of the Balkans.

The skiing:
From there on a good day the view expands toward mount Olympos in Greece, Pelister, Korab and Shar Mountain in Macedonia and the nearby massive Pirin Mountain. The descent is a choice of several gullies, and then you continue on a easier terrain that will conect to the ski centre pistes to take you all the way down, around 2000 vertical meters to you base.
