O che bello! – mountain biking in Romania
One year after spending a ski-touring week in the Bucegi and Făgăraş, Mario kept his promise of returning to the Romanian mountains. Together with five friends from Switzerland and Italy, this time he came for six days of pedaling on the dirt roads and trails of the mountains near the city of Braşov.
Combining my long experience in organizing tours for mountaineers from all over the world with Horia’s comprehensive knowledge of the mountain biking routes around Braşov, we put tog… (>>>)
Most of the time we depend by the weather condition, and even we had big powder snow on beginning of March, the visibility was not the best! We skied on Ialomita valley on good snow but not good visibility, then we moved on west part of Bucegi. The last day was in Poiana Brasov, with some forest skiing.
Below are some images from Bucegi and Postavaru mountains!

Between February 27 and March 5th I was skiing with a group of 6 persons from Lecco, Italy! As usual we were luck with the weather, and we can do the program what we agree, mostly because of the very good quality of the snow. Even if it was just the begin of March the snow was almost firn, that type of spring snow.

Greetings to all!
On the weekend of 20-21 February 2010, I was on a short ski tour in Bucegi mountains, with another 5 persons, from France and Switzerland, all of them working in Bucharest. We were really lucky with the weather, as usual 🙂 Saturday even if it was blue sky, the cable cars from Sinaia was not working because of the strong wind at 2000 meters high, so finally we arrived at Cota 1400, and from there we start to climb on skis and skins. The climb and the rest of the day was really nice, warm and sunny, and the last ski descent on Plaiul … (>>>)

On February 2009 it was a period when was snowing like in fairy tales. All was white and it was a pleasure to be out there taking some nice photos. The tour was in the area of Bran castle, in Simon and Poarta villages. Is a beautiful area for moderate hill walking, and a very nice area for those who love to take photos on the nature.

This week of February 2009 was maybe not the best for snowboarding, but some days were great. Powder snow and visibility at Balea Lake in Fagaras mountains, give us the possibility to have some nice rides on Balea valley or on Lady valley. The tours before Fagaras mountains were in Poiana Brasov and Ciucas mountains. The snow was great but the wind and fog were quite heavy, so the pleasure was not at maximum. After Fagaras mountains we drive to Sinaia ski resort, and unfortunately for 2 days we were on lower clouds, without too many options … (>>>)
The last week of February 2009 was a great ski touring week on the valleys from Bucegi mountains. We start first with quite a long traverse from Sinaia to Omu peak, on skins, with a stop for a warm soup at Babele chalet. The powder on Ialomita valley was very nice (and cold…) and after this we climb to Omu peak. Here we meet Corina and Radu, working at the Omu weather forecast station, welcoming us with a hot cup of tea! On the next day we ski on Gaura
valley and after 3 runs we descent to Padina chalet, where we stay for the next 2 nights. On the … (>>>)
If on last week of February the snow and the weather was perfect for touring in Bucegi mountains, I can’t say the same thing about the week what just end… Was enough snow, and was even snowy in almost each day and night, but was not too much visibility, and skiing was not a real pleasure. The tour was in Fagaras and Bucegi mountains, also visiting Sibiu and Sighisoara cities. The last day of the tour was the nicest one from the entire week, but the tour
was ending on that day …
