    PETER ANDRE ENJOYS FAMILY TIME ON THE SLOPES IN BULGARIA

    22.02.22 – Singer/songwriter, TV personality and proud dad Peter Andre took to the slopes with wife Emily and all four children on a Crystal Ski Holiday in Borovets, Bulgaria this half term.

     

    The family first skied in Courchevel as part of their reality show, Meet the Andres, and it’s fast become a passion.  Youngest son Theo, aged five, took his first ski run with the rest of the family whilst eight-year-old Millie relished getting back on the slopes.  Big brother and sister Junior, 16 and Princess, 14, looked like budding professionals and the entire family enjoyed spending time together in the invigorating mountains of Borovets.

     

    “I had no idea Bulgaria is a ski destination and it’s been wonderful,” said Peter. “We were originally going to France, but entry requirements meant we couldn’t as Junior wasn’t able to get his second vaccination in time.  We had to find an alternative and I’m so grateful we did.  Bulgaria has been amazing – the people, the food, the place, and of course, the skiing. We are definitely coming back.”

     

    As well as skiing, the family have been taking advantage of everything on offer in the resort from horse riding to tobogganing, and they also enjoyed a Valentine’s Day meal together.

     

    Snow holidays are a far cry from the popular entertainer’s childhood holidays with his parents, sister and four brothers to Cyprus and Australia, where the family moved when Peter was just six years old.  He recalls that his “school holidays as children were always based on sunshine. Basically sunshine, beaches, the smell of tanning oil and ice cream. That’s how I remember our holidays”.

     

    These days he’s a winter snow convert and spent the week sashaying down the mountains runs lined with pine trees.  Dating back to 1896, Borovets is the first mountain resort in the Balkans and the name literally translates as pine forest. It’s now a thriving ski destination welcoming guests from across Europe.

     

    Peter and Emily love spending quality family with the children and recommend a ski holiday as a special bonding experience. Peter’s advice for anyone considering taking to the slopes for the first time is “do it, do it, do it”.

     

    He explains, “go as a family; it’s such a good bonding experience because you’re doing activities together. The kids can learn on the nursery slopes, you can all learn – even the adults. It’s how we learned – on the green runs.  It really is a special holiday. You eat together, you ski together, and you’re laughing because someone is falling but you’re all egging each other on to do better. Then you go off and do something like tobogganing together. There’s just so many things that you can do.”

     

    The Andres were guests of Crystal Ski Holidays and spent a week in the Balkan resort of Borovets staying at the Hotel Rila. For further information about skiing in Bulgaria go to www.crystalski.co.uk .
