November - March - (Winter)

Wintertime in Bulgaria can be strikingly cold beginning at the end of November with plenty of snow falling from December onwards. The average temperatures during this season range from 37-48 degrees and it rains on average 4-5 times per month. The mountains and ski villages are booming during this time are popular with snowshoeing, skiing, snowboarding, and gorgeous ski resorts with warm, cozy taverns. The coastal resorts shut down during the winter months as the weather is far too cold to spend on the beach or in the water.
