We started this ski touring weekend for friends back in 2012, and since then we are honoring this nice tradition every winter. During these eight years some people have left the group, others joined later, and some are part of the adventure from the very beginning. We’ve had brilliant powder snow, or spring slush, freezing cold in bitter blizzard or nice, warm temperatures while skiing among spring crocuses. In the last couple of years we’ve extended the event with some training days, either in the forests of Postavaru o… (>>>)

This is happening when you son study medicine in Cluj Napoca University: you go to visit him, but you bring your ski touring gear with you, because are some nice mountains and powder to ski! And this Octavian and Bettina did, they came for a ski tour in Fagaras and Bucegi montains, one of the best and most accessible mountains for ski touring in Romania. Even if the weather at Balea lake was a truly winter weather, cold and wind storms, we enjoyed blue sky and powder snow during our trips in Bucegi mountains.
Enjoy the photos, Iulian, Februar… (>>>)
Romanian mountains can be a destinations for short trips, hiking, walking, mountain biking, and why not, for ski touring. With a lot of experience and a good logistic, but off course, with good weather and snow conditions, we enjoyed 4 days of ski touring in Bucegi mountains, on last March. I meet Nicolas many years ago, he’s now based in France, but he still love Carpathian mountains, and with each occasion he share his love with his friends in France.

Was a group of friends and colleagues from university, who usually enjoy skiing in The Alps, but they decide to see how are the Carpathian mountains in winter time. So, last February we enjoy a ski trip in Bucegi and Fagaras mountains, on perfect sunny days and powder snow! As always, we were almost the only skiers in both areas, and this was one of the nicest part! Bucegi mountains were great, our hosts Doina and Mircea, as always, very charming and welcoming people!
At Balea lake sky was blue, snow was as good as we wish, so the trip was jus… (>>>)
If is possible to add a title to a ski tour this has to be: Never stop exploring! Because things like this have to happen: Bill, a 71 years old Australian gentelman, based in England, never stopped enjoying ski touring around the world. We were very impressed by his ski touring trips record around the world and by his determination when came about weather conditions! On first and last day of our trip, traversing Bucegi mountains from Sinaia to Ialomita valley, weather was bad, quite bad as a English may say! But a mountain lover never st… (>>>)
They are from Zaragoza, near the Pirineos and they were first time in Romania on winter of 2012, when the weather was not on our side. Anyway, after 3 years they returned to see if we can discover now the Romanian mountains on better weather. And we did! The first plan was Bucegi and Fagaras mountains, but at the end was Bucegi mountains and a speed climbing tour on Poiana Brasov ski resort, on a heavy snowing day! This time Bucegi mountains were great and we enjoyed everything, snow, sun, weather conditions and not the last the delicious foo… (>>>)
Most of the mountain lovers do not make a connection between ski touring and Greece. For most of them, Greece is mean deep clear water, rock climbing, but not ski touring. In fact from the Greek mountains are coming the ancient Gods, Zeus have his home on Olympus mountains. So if are mountains must to be some snow too! After our experience in Macedonia republic, where we’ve been also for ski touring, we moved more South East, to Olympus mountain area. As in Popova Sapka, we were blessed with beautiful weather, blue sky; well, pretty windy o… (>>>)
I meet the group on spring of 2011, when we enjoy a ski trip in Romania, Bucegi and Fagaras mountains. The few years after we enjoyed another ski tour together in Bulgarian mountains, Rila and Pirin. As some of them confess, was one of the best tour they ever did. Weather was nice, snow was great, over all a great experience.
Now we were skiing for few days in Shar mountains, at Popova Sapka in Macedonia republic. Despite the poor snow all over Europe, we were lucky with enough snow and beautiful blue sky. Also, a walking tour in the capital cit… (>>>)
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… (>>>)
Sheila was having something for what some of us just dream, one month ski holiday in Europe. Well, I can start this story back in 2009, when we start to talk about Romanian mountains, traverse of Fagaras main ridge. in Summer of course.
