The all-day lift map for Pamporovo Ski Area gives access to Mechi Chal Ski Area. For greater convenience, a special ski shuttle service is provided on a schedule to make it as easy as possible to cross the two ski areas. Ski lifts can be used free of charge by any customer who has purchased a lift card valid for the day of use of the transport link. There are 3 stops along the route and signboards inform the tourists about the current skiing schedule. Stops: 1. Ski center 2 – Malina 2. Ski center 1 – Bus station 3.
