Bereits zum zweiten mal ging es in die Karparten zum Splitboarden.
Letztes Jahr waren wir schon begeistert von der Natur den Touren und dem tollen Essen.
Waren wir bis jetzt „nur“ im Bucegi Gebirge unterwegs, so sollten es diesmal auch ein paar Tage im Fagaras sein.
Die Bedingungen waren im Durchschnitt ziemlich gut und so hatten wir einige tolle Touren mit teilweise großartigen Abfahrten.
Iulian passte die Trips immer perfekt auf das Wetter und unseren Bedürfnissen an.
So ging es auch mal durch die tief verschneite Landschaft zu ei… (>>>)
Michael and his wife Bianca were here, in Bucegi mountains last year at begin of January, and we did a ski touring, splitboard and snowshoeing trip in Bucegi mountains. We start at Sinaia resort, on beautiful spring time, even if was 5th of January, enjoying some some sunny days in Bucegi central part, and ending in big powder snow in Simon and Moeciu de Sus mountain villages!
And this winter Michael together with another two friends, return to our mountains again. West Fagaras and Bucegi mountains. As always, at Barcaciu hutte, we were … (>>>)
At the beginning of our tour, Bucegi mountains were just a big desert, without sand, sorry, snow! But at least was blue sky!
Second day, the same blue sky, but we manage to find some nice powder for some long lines!
Well, then we had a situation, meaning a snow storm came over Bucegi, and true winter finally arrived in Carpathian mountains.
After we traverse Dudele mountains, from Bucegi to upper parts of Moeciu de Sus mountain village, in true snow storm, we had a really big surprise: at least 50-70 cm of fresh powder snow, untouched, was th… (>>>)
Wir waren jetzt das zweite Mal mit Iulian unterwegs, und das sagt eigentlich schon alles.
Die Organisation war auch dieses Mal komplett reibungslos, auch wenn wir wetterbedingt das Programm ein wenig umgestellt haben. Durch eine ungewöhnliche Wärmeperiode gab es diesmal recht wenig Schnee, aber durch seine Ortskenntnis hat Iulian immer wieder schönen Schnee für uns gefunden.
Super ist auch, dass er als Guide seine Touren jeden Tag perfekt am Können und der Kondition seiner Gäste ausrichtet. So ist man immer gefordert, jedoch n… (>>>)
They were splitboarding in Romania last January. And they return because they enjoyed! This year weather was much better than last year, but the poor winter conditions across all Europe, was presented here too.
Anyway, we take the best out of this snow conditions, and we enjoy nice weather tours in Bucegi mountains.
Then we moved in the forest around Brasov city, for a walk in spring weather conditions around the forest of Brasov.
As Sander and Ela said, we are so fortunate to live in Brasov, because you can start hiking or biking directl… (>>>)
During a winter tour, weather can bring you to heaven or not! Something like this was happening during our splitboard trip in Bucegi mountains, at the end of February, when weather was not as good as we expected!
We did our best, we climbed Tataru peak in one of the days when was worth to go out, but the most beautiful day was the last one, when we get 30 cm of fresh snow, and we enjoyed our way back to Sinaia!
Enjoy the photos,
Iulian, March 2015
On September 2014 I was kindly asked by Sander to organize a splitboard trip for him and his girlfriend, Elzbieta. Both were beginners in touring and splitboading, and were very clear on the tours they request: more touring then climbing peaks. And this we did. We enjoyed four days in Bucegi mountains and two days in Piatra Craiului national park.
As is in January here, we didn’t have too many sunny moments, but we were happy with the snow quality, the views and the most important ever, we have all the mountains just for us and those b… (>>>)
You can still find unspoilt mountain territory in Europe, where ski touring, split-boarding, free-ride skiing and snowshoeing can be done on pure wild slopes, without ski lifts, high alpine roads or parking lots in sight.
Grab your gear and come for a winter outdoor adventure up in the Carpathian Mountains, South Transylvania, Romania.
The mountains around Brasov historical city offer great opportunities both for the relaxed ski tourers, and the more adventurous free-ride skiers. There are easy to moderate slopes in Bucegi Mou… (>>>)
