Romania is the “Wild East” of skiing and Iluian is a great guide to explore it with. During my week there it snowed constantly- light, smoky dry powder that rivals anything I’ve skied in the Rockies or Alps. We had fresh tracks almost every day, whether skiing the trees at the resort of Poiana Brasov or exploring the back country of the Simbata Valley. The terrain is wild, the snow is fantastic and at the end of a hard day’s skiing you can relax over a meal of bear steak and wash it down with some of Iulian’s grandmother’s plum brandy (beware of this stuff!). I highly recommend hiring Iulian to show you some of last, real wilderness skiing in Europe.
