Skiresorts

The Romanian Carpathians are a pleasant discovery for skiers and winter sports enthusiasts. They offer in the higher regions up to 120 days of snow, however, the best period for skiing is from January to March.

Well-known (and modernized) winter sports paradises are located on Valea Prahovei and Poiana Brasov, but the proximity to Bucharest also guarantees quite a lot of traffic and congestion on arrival and departure. There is now a ski slope in almost every mountain range, even if the infrastructure cannot be compared to known European ski resorts. But the active athletes get a lot of adventure and untamed nature.

10 Golden Rules for Skiing and Snowboarding

When it comes to staying safe on the slopes, everyone would like to think that they know how to be safe. But do you know the 10 golden rules for skiing and snowboarding?

1. Respect for others: a skier or snowboarder must behave in such a way that he does not endanger or prejudice others.

2. Control of speed and skiing or snowboarding: a skier or snowboarder must move in control. He must adapt his speed and manner of skiing or snowboarding to his personal ability and to the prevailing conditions of terrain, snow and weather as well as to the density of traffic.

3. Choice of route: a skier or snowboarder coming from behind must choose his route in such a way that he does not endanger skiers or snowboarders ahead.

4. Overtaking: a skier or snowboarder may overtake another skier or snowboarder above or below and to the right or to the left provided that he leaves enough space for the overtaken skier or snowboarder to make any voluntary or involuntary movement.

5. Entering, starting and moving upwards: a skier or snowboarder entering a marked run, starting again after stopping or moving upwards on the slopes must look up and down the slopes that he can do so without endangering himself or others.

6. Stopping on the piste: unless absolutely necessary, a skier or snowboarder must avoid stopping on the piste in narrow places or where visibility is restricted. After a fall in such a place, a skier or snowboarder must move clear of the piste as soon as possible.

7. Climbing and descending on foot: a skier or snowboarder either climbing or descending on foot must keep to the side of the piste.

9. Respect the international markings for the difficulty levels of the ski slopes:

  • Very easy - green
  • Easy - blue
  • Medium - red
  • Hard - black

10. Assistance & Identification: announce National Salvamont Dispatch at phone number 0Salvamont (0725826668) in case of accident on the slope, specifying the following: name, what happened, how many people need help, when the accident occurred and where the injured persons are. Try to protect the injured person until the team of mountain rescuers arrives.
