About Ski touring in Ciucas
Ski touring in Ciucaș you may have done before - on the Tigăilor valley, on the northern or southern ridges and valleys that drop down from the Bratocea ridge.
We invite you to something slightly different.
On Friday we meet in Brasov at 2pm and drive our cars to the Berie Valley (your cars stay in Brasov, yes).
We go up on skis in the starlight for the last 2-3 km to the Ciucaș hut, a good opportunity to get to know each other and to tell stories about the moon and the stars :)
After a restful night in the hut on Saturday we climb the Ciucaș peak, sometimes on skis, sometimes on the corners and, after a break to contemplate the 360 degree view, we take out the seals and make the first turns up the Strâmb valley towards the Ciucaș saddle. The rest of the day is an alternation of ups and downs and if the forecast holds it can be a wonderful string of turns in fresh snow!
We end the day with a good dinner and a car transfer back to Brasov after many kilometres of skiing up and down the hill!
Depending on the quality of the snow and the mood of the group, the Sunday can be completed with tours to Bucegi, Piatra Mare or Postăvaru.
