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

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.

I'm an IFMGA guide from Romania and a member of the Eastern European Mountain Guide Association.
With two decades and a half spent doing mountain sports and nearly a decade guiding or teaching climbing my work and passion has taken me from the mountains and crags near home to the greater ranges.
Please feel free to get in touch for trips involving trekking, climbing, skiing or expeditions. I also run climbing courses (rock, ice, mixed and alpine), ski touring and winter safety workshops as well as self rescue in vertical terrain clinics.
Regular climbs from sport to multi-pitch and alpine terrain are charged on per-day rates plus expenses while expeditions are charged on a flat rate based on the size of the group and the destination.
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 purposes the following languages: English, Romanian, French and Italian and for teaching purposes English and Romanian.
