The well-known winter sport centre Poiana Brasov is situated 170 km away from Bucharest and is one of the most frequented resorts in Romania, mostly because of its modern sports infrastructure, including artificial skating rink, sport fields, riding centres and a Gondola lift with a capacity of 2000 skiers per hour. There is an Olympic ski-track, two 80 metres high ski-jumps, and 12 downhill and slalom runs. One of the advantages of the resort is the artificial snow providing insulation which enables the most passionate skiers to practice their favourite sport from autumn until spring. Another attraction you will find here is the opportunity to ride in a horse-drawn sleigh.
Poiana Brasov is perfect for beginners. The nursery slopes are wide and gentle and there is a plateau at the top of the mountain. The excellent English speaking ski instructors make learning great fun, and normally there are about 10-12 people appointed to each class. At the end of the learning week most beginners are able to ski at the blue run from the top of the Christianu Mare all the way down to the village.
This is a good resort for intermediate skiers to improve their skills as the blue runs are not too testing and not too crowded, great for perfecting your parallel turn. Try the red runs that take you over varied terrain. Please make the most of the excellent ski school.
Advanced skiers will find skiing limited as there are only a few black runs at this resort.
Floodlights have been installed on the lower slopes so that you can enjoy your skiing until 9 o’clock in the evenings. This gives you the chance to enjoy the après-ski until late at night, have a lie in and still get a full day’s skiing!
There is a well maintained system of ski lifts, open daily from 09:00 am - 09:00 pm. Each cable car is closed for one day per week for maintenance.
Poiana Brasov is fun, lively and great value for money. There is a wide range of bars, restaurants and discos to choose from, open until late in the evening. For an authentic Romanian evening we recommend an evening at either "Dacian’s Lounge" or "The Outlaws Hut". Both restaurants have a lively atmosphere with Romanian folk music and serve delicious and plentiful cuisine.
