Poiana Brasov
Located in the Romanian Carpathians, Transylvania’s premier ski resort boasts pistes that descend from altitudes of more than 5,577 feet (1,700 meters). Officially a suburb of Brașov, the resort town is home to a range of luxury hotels and restaurants, and serves as a convenient launchpad for exploring the Carpathian mountain range.

The Basics
The easily-accessible resort is the ideal destination for a short getaway; some day trips include convenient round-trip transfers and a 24-hour ski pass. Spend the day exploring the slopes; take advantage of private classes to hone your ski skills; or try your hand at paragliding, horseback riding, mountain biking, or cross-country skiing in the scenic surroundings. Multi-day excursions often include the resort as part of a wider itinerary that offers an overview of Transylvania’s natural highlights.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Poiana Brașov is an affordable alternative to other European skiing destinations.
  • The slopes are best suited to beginner and intermediate skiers and snowboarders, though the three black runs offer some thrilling moments for experts.
  • It’s possible to rent skiing gear in the main town.
  • The range of runs and activities available make Poiana Brașov ideal for a family getaway.

When to Get There

The ski season runs from December to April. Booking accommodation ahead of time is a must as the resort gets busy. Off-season visitors can still enjoy a trip to the resort town; fewer crowds and cheaper prices are a distinct advantage. Lights on the lower slopes allow for skiing well into the evening.

How to Get There
Poiana Brașov is a short bus ride away from Brașov, which is directly connected to Bucharest by train. From the main station, you can catch bus number 100, while bus number 20 connects the resort town and the city center. Transport up the mountain includes two aerial tramways, two chairlfits, five ski lifts, one gondola, and a magic carpet.

Romanian Resorts
Romania is making a name for itself amongst winter sports enthusiasts, offering affordable and equally scenic alternatives to the famous Alpine slopes. Advanced skiers may enjoy Rânca’s more challenging routes over in the Gorj County, while off-pisters can explore vast expanses of untouched snow in the Bâlea Lake region.
