Skiing in Balea Lac, Fagaras Mountains – a thrilling adventure. This is the story of one of the best days in my skiing life. In the middle of March 2007, I was staying with some friends on a mountain hotel in Balea Lac in Transylvania. There were only one option to come to the hotel and that was to use the cabin. During the summer there is normally an open road, but during our stay it was buried in lots of snow. Beside the skiing adventure I must highlight the amazing cultural experience with excellent local food and drinks. Morning The alarm on m… (>>>)

Skiing in Bale Lac, 2007. We are a group of Engineers from Sweden who like to try out new ski places in the world. After skiing in places in Norway, the US (Park City and Vail) we decided to try something new. Out of the blue came a suggestion, Romania. So Romania it was although most of us new very little about this country. To ski in Romania might seem to be far away. As it turned out, it didn’t take longer to get there then going to Norway to ski. Romania is known for its beautiful nature, however to our knowledge not very known for its skiing. The s… (>>>)
Die Reise hat uns sehr gut gefallen, organisatorisch perfekt. Auch die Skitouren – leider keine langen Abfahrten durch den massigen Schnee.

Transylvania : Cold Mountains, Culture and more… Andrew Kydd 25 Feb – 5 Mar 2006 – Eagle club journal. Having bumped into a kitted-up ski tourer on a previous non-skiing visit, Steve Gould had been researching a Romanian trip for some time. Enter Iulian Cozma (RMGA) who put together a complete package for us, and turned out to be a great guide, host and organiser, and a mine of local information (www.mountainguide.ro). The original plan was for day tours in three areas: the Bucegi massif, SW of Brasov, and huts in two different parts of th… (>>>)
My name is Conny Linusson and I am from Sweden. For some years now I have been travelling to Romania in business and have been thinking about skiing in the Carpathians. Finally it come to a reality. Me and my girlfriend Marie decided to go skiing in February 2006. Since we both enjoy the adventure running in less crowded areas using seal skins the choice fell on Balea Lac. However, in such areas it is good to have an educated mountain guide that knows the area. When searching on the internet we got in contact with Iulian Cozma. After some mails … (>>>)
Iulian, A short mail to thank you for arranging and guiding a really enjoyable ski trip to Romania. Sadly the weather prevented us from completing the proposed itinerary but you made the most of the conditions to provide us with a memorable trip. The organisation was excellent and you could not have been more helpful. I would recommend you to anyone interested in visiting the mountains of Romania. All my best regards,

Lieber Julian, Nach den gemeinsamen Tagen im Sommer möchte ich die Bergwelt Rumäniens auch im Winter kennen lernen. Ich habe mich sehr gefreut, dass ich mit deinen Gästen aus England eine Skitourenwoche mit dir verbringen durfte. Leider hat sich das Wetter und die Verhältnisse nicht von der besten Seite gezeigt. Trotzdem hast du uns ein abwechslungsreiches Programm präsentiert, das den aktuellen Bedingungen angepasst war. Dein Organisationstalent und dein unermüdliches Bestreben, uns ein interessantes Alternativprogra… (>>>)

Lieber Julian, Nochmals herzlichen Dank für die Tage, die ich mit dir verbringen durfte. Als Rumänien-Neuling konnte ich mit dir den höchsten Berg deines Landes, den Moldoveanu besteigen. Sehr geschätz habe ich deine fürsorgliche Beutreuung besonders wenn es um Essen und Unterkunft ging. Zudem haben mir dein Rat und deine Tipps für meine weiteren Tage in Rumänien ohne Führer sehr geholfen. Schon jetzt bin ich sicher, dass ich die Bergwelt Rumäniens weiter erkunden möchte.
Vielen Dank, bis bald Monika Schoch, Schweiz… (>>>)
I went ski-touring with Iulian in March 2005. We are a group of five, and after having climbed and skied mount Damavand in Iran we decided to look for some skiing adventure in Romania. One of us located Iulian through the internet, whereupon Iulian pretty much told us he could arrange everything and would show us the best skiing places. Not only did he guide us to the impressive Bucegi range, beautiful Balea Lake and Sambata valley for some terrific powder skiing (and I mean loads of powder!!) but Iulian told us a lot about his country, and s… (>>>)
