Description

The Fagaras Mountains aontain some spectacular peaks in Romania, home to some of the loftiest, iciest and highest alpine mountains.

Generous coatings of snow layer the slopes and valleys of the Romanian mountains.

We begin by catching the cable car from Balea Cascada, one of the most spectacular and biggest waterfalls in Romania. We’ll get off at Balea Lake, where we base ourselves for the coming action-packed days.

The Fagaras Mountains offers wide variety of slopes capable for beginners as much as advanced skiers. And so depending on the group’s level of ability, as well as weather and slope conditions, we’ll choose the safest and most fun slopes available.

If conditions allow it, we can send the luggage down by cable car before we ski all the way to the bottom. Or if conditions do not allow us, then we will take the cable car down to the bottom.

Get in touch now to reserve your place on an action-packed 5-day ski tour of Romania’s Fagaras Mountains and enjoy the stunning alpine scenery.

Itinerary

Day 1: Meeting and gear check

We meet at the Balea Cascada cable car station where we do an “essential gear” check. Even if complicated this is the last place from where we could have a chance to source forgotten or misplaced items. After the gear check we will take the cable car to Balea Lake where we will check in at the hotel. This day is dedicated to reviewing basic winter risk awareness and avalanche search and rescue. We will close the day with some easy runs.

Day 2: Ski touring

After breakfast we will go out for a first tour. Depending on snow, weather and slope conditions we will choose one of the popular day trip options. We can tailor the tour to the group level and strengths. We can cater for both longer or shorter days as well. Overnight at hotel.

Day 3: Ski touring

Similar to the day before but different run. Overnight at hotel.

Day 4: Ski touring

Similar to the days before but different run. Overnight at hotel.

Day 5: Final day

After breakfast we will go out for our final tour. If snow conditions will allow it we can arrange so the luggage is sent down by cable car and we can ski all the way down to the parking lot. If the snow conditions will not allow then we need to be ready to catch the cable car at 16:00. We can have dinner in Sibiu or we can part ways at Balea cascada.

Mountain Guide

I'm an IFMGA mountain guide from Romania and a member of the Austrian Mountain Guides Association (VOBS) and the East European Mountain Guides Association(EEMGA).

My passions are alpinism, rock and ice climbing and ski touring. Over the last decade and a half I have climbed and skied all corners of the World, spent numerous seasons guiding in the Himalayas, New Zealand, Alps and the Carpathians Mountains.

My primary concern as your guide is your safety. With that comes a great deal of fun, learning and engaging in experiences that will be memorable for a lifetime. I hope to have the opportunity to climb with you and help you achieve climbs, summits and experiences not yet imagined!

I have a very strict policy on guide-to-guest ratios for all types of terrain and these are clearly explained prior to engagement. For multi pitch climbs it is usually 1:1 and it never exceeds 1:2. For single pitch venues (especially on instructional outings) it never exceeds 1:4. Higher ratios are possible with the hiring of additional guides and only following prior arrangements. For treks and ski tours the ratios are more generous but depending on the terrain and/or the group’s experience.

I am comfortable in using for guiding and teaching purposes the following languages: English and Romanian.
Contact me for availability, rates or to customize a program to help you achieve your climbing goals.

It was an amazing experience. Daniel Pobega was excellent. Calm, friendly and very professional. Will definitely book another trip with him if not Vallee Blanche but other future activities.

We had a great time , unfortunately Cosmin broke his arm two weeks before the trip but the replacement guide Nicu Durnac was superb.

The plan was to leave early to ascent Mont Blanc via Trois Monts. As a beginner, Cosmin accessed my performance by timing my ascent to the shoulder of Tacul, else he has to change the plan. I met the timing and proceeded to Maudit. Unfortunately, he made a tough decision to head back as the condition at the foot of Maudit was not great. (We heard serac fell at mid day). Being professional, Cosmin changed the plan to ascent Tacul and we did Cosmique Arete. I would highly recommend this trip!
