There are conditions for rough terrain rides. A half-pipe facility is also available for snowboarders. Early in 2010 Pamporovo hosted Pamporovo Freestyle Open with participants from Bulgaria and other European countries.

This allows an individual approach to the needs of beginners as well as special instruction for skiers and snowboarders who wish to improve their skills. In 2010 travel agency Neilson Active Holidays declared the largest ski school in Pamporovo the best in Europe.
