Dobrinishte ski slope is located at the foot of Bezbog peak, in Pirin Mountain. The starting station of the lift, which is located near Gotse Delchev hut, is built at an altitude of 1485m. It is about 12 km from the town of  Dobrinishte. The upper station is located at an altitude of about 2225 m, near Bezbog hut. The length of the runway is about 5 km. At the beginning of the piste is located a beginners and children slope with two surface lifts.

Bezbog hut is located at an altitude of 2236 m. In the summer the hut is the starting point of several hiking trails, and in winter gives the beginning of the Bezbog ski track. During the winter season the only way to reach the hut is by using a chair lift.

A two-seater open lift connects the lower end of the runway to Bezbog hut. The ascent from Gotse Delchev hut to Bezbog hut is about 27 minutes, with one intermediate station. The lift moves relatively slowly, allowing you to enjoy the incredible view.

In front of Bezbog hut is located Bezbog Lake, which usually freezes in winter. There is a route for climbing the nearby Bezbog peak (2645 meters). One side of the summit is an attractive place for lovers of off-piste skiing and snowboarding, where, unfortunately, avalanches sometimes fall.

Intermediate Station

In some places the track is about 25-30 m wide and has different levels of difficulty. The slope before the intermediate station is of moderate/middle difficulty (red track).

During the weekends, the track can be quite busy, but on weekdays you may experience moments when the track is nearly empty.

Shortly after the intermediate station is located the steepest part of the track, called the Wall. The track is suitable for advanced skiers. Sometimes, when there is not enough snow or the weather conditions are unpleasant, the track migth be not well prepared. There is also an alternative ski path that branches off to the right before the Wall, passes through the forest and joins the main runway at the end of the wall.
