Of the 4 days trip that we have planned, we want to spend a day at Borovets. I will be travelling with my wife and 2 kids. We want to experience Skiing there. My questions are - travelling in the last week of March - is that right season to go there? We will be renting car and do we need snow chains for tyres. Is few hours training sessions common or is it normally long hours? Do we get all equipments for rent rather than we buying - what is available and what not?
Please let me know.

I have just booked a weeks skiing in Borovets and have since discovered that the lifts are closed for half a day per week and for a whole day each month for maintanence/service.
