Poiana Brasov

This premier winter resort, high in the Carpathian Mountains of Transylvania really is Romania’s showpiece, with a superb pine forest location and the fascinating medieval town of Brasov far below. The whole resort has been attractively laid out to make the very best of the range of skiing available – it’s ideal for beginners and intermediates, and there’s some lively après ski to, with distinctive Romanian flavour at prices that won’t break the bank. Romania’s graceful capital Bucharest is only 3 hours’ drive away. Poiana Brasov has always had an excellent snow record throughout the winter season.

Beginners

Poiana Brasov is perfect for beginners. The nursery slopes are wide and gentle and there is a plateau at the top of the mountain. All ski instructors are English speaking with classes normally consisting of 10-12 people. By the end of the 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.

Intermediates

This is a good resort for intermediate skiers to improve their skills and progress from the blue runs that are not too testing and not too crowded, to the red runs that take you over varied terrain.

Advanced

There are only a few black runs at this resort.

Night Skiing

Floodlights have been installed on the lower slopes so that you can enjoy your skiing until 9 o’clock in the evenings.

Apres-ski

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.
