site.btaWeather in Mountains: Freezing but Good for Skiing
The temperature in the mountains is up to minus 15 degrees, the Mountain Rescue Service informed BTA. The conditions for tourism are good, all pistes and facilities in the resorts are open, the rescuers added.
In spite of the cold weather and the freezing temperatures, there is a risk of avalanches along the high ridges of the mountains due to the large quantities of snow fallen during the previous days.
The Mountain Rescue Service recommends tourists to set out for the mountain well equipped with warm clothing and shoes and always to have something sweet to eat.

In the regions of Vidin, Vratsa, Montana, Kyustendil, Blagoevgrad, Pernik, and Smolyan the minimum temperatures during the day will be below minus 10 degrees.
