Pamporovo is gearing up for its strongest winter season yet, when it will host the International Ski and Snowboard Federation's Snowboard World Cup for the first time. This was announced by the resort authorities on September 27, when World Tourism Day is celebrated. 

A modern six-seat gondola lift will be put into operation in Pamporovo in the new season, the South ski slope will be reopened and a children's Snow Park will be established. "Select" ski passes for subscription use of the slopes, lifts and platter lifts are already on sale. Their prices are the same as in the last two seasons and can be purchased until December 10, 2023. The artificial snow installations have been reinforced to ensure snow cover for the whole season.
