Ski touring in Bucegi Mts. – Southern Carpathians

Bucegi. ski touring

Our mountains are full covered with snow and the winter season started already.

Last days with had a 2 days ski tour in Bucegi Mountains, in the backyard of our office from Zarnesti – Brasov.

The weather was far from perfect, but the snow was great!

First day we did the first section of Bucegi Haute Route (3 days tour), which means +1.200m up to almost 2.000m alt.

According to the weather conditions (wind and snowfall) following day we stayed low, skiing at the forest level (around 1.500m alt.) on the north side of Bucegi Mts. But the fun was great!

 

Brasov Big Six in Winter

 

The Big Six in winter season is our special prize for peak baggers.

It is a unique circuit program created by us, meaning to reach the surrounding BIG SIX highest and most important peaks nearby Brasov.

In winter season, almost all peaks can be reached by skis or snowshoes in one long day, starting early morning from Brasov, if you are fit enough and know the safest/ shortest/fastest route.

The BIG SIX are:

  1. Tampa Peak (960m alt. D+ 420m), Postavaru Mts.;
  2. Magura Codlei (1.292m, D+ 665m), Persani Mts.;
  3. Postăvaru Peak (1.799m alt., D+ 780m ), Postavaru Mts. 
  4. Piatra Mare Peak (1.844m alt. D+ 1.200m), Piatra Mare Mts.
  5. Piscul Baciului/La Om Peak (2.239m alt., D+ 1.039m), Piatra Craiului Mts.
  6. Omu Peak (2.505m alt., D+ 1.800m), Bucegi Mts.

All peaks can be collected in six different days, some of them easier (including cable car), others harder, according to the chosen route.

The last two peaks from Bucegi and Piatra Craiului are the hardest and avalanche prone and must be reached only in good weather conditions.

Family walking in Brasov Mountains

Trekking. Bucegi

We are in full summer season and all mountain paths from Brasov mountains are full with mountain lovers.

These days we have been in Piatra Mare and Bucegi Mountain, with a lovely Spanish – Romanian family, willing to to do as much as possible.

The ”Șapte Scări” Canyon very close to Brasov is a popular objective, a place not to be missed. You just need a waterproof jacket for the canyon itself and do not go there in weekends!

Another day we went above 2.000m altitudine, on the high alpine plateau of Bucegi Mountains Natural Park. Here you can find many geological figures, including the most popular ”Babele” and ”Sfinx”, surrounded by legends and strange stories.

Regarding Bucegi plateau, must be said that despite the flat and easy terrain in full sunny days, the plateau is a huge trap for those who forget where they are: on a high and open plateau above 2.000m altitude!
