Poiana Brasov

Poiana Brasov
Poiana Brasov is the best known Romanian ski resort, a regular in Britain’s winter holidays brochures for three decades. Once regarded as a cheap, good value destination for beginners, fierce price rises over the past few years have seen Poiana transform into a relatively expensive place to ski, characterised by long lift queues, poor snow conditions and crowded pistes.

In recent years, however, Poiana Brasov has at last seen some serious investment in its skiing infrastructure, and things look set to change for the better. New pistes have been created and existing ones extended, while two new chair lifts have helped shorten some of the peak-time queues and ease congestion on the busy slopes. The resort’s administrators have also invested in snow making equipment and piste-maintenance machines in order to keep the pistes in better shape.
