Ski touring: Come with us to climb Postăvaru by starlight!
Fourteen years ago we started going up in the evenings on touring skis at the Postăvaru hut. It happened to be on a Wednesday and then, arriving by chance on the seals at a hut in the Gastein valley, Austria we discovered that Wednesday ascents were a tradition :)
That's how Postănaiț was born, the tradition of night climbs up to the hut!
Today the movement is very popular and night after night the hut fills up with enthusiasts of seals or mountain running.
We invite you to join us in enjoying the magic of starry nights and the lights of the cities that lie at our feet.
We go up every Wednesday and Saturday evening with friendly weather from 8 February to 29 March, from 6pm.
We descend by torchlight at 9.30 pm.
You'll get fellow tour mates sharing a bit of climbing technique with you on tour gear and making sure you're safer than alone at night on the mountain.
All our guides are AGMR accredited mountain guides or ski/snowboard instructors with years of experience.
Ski touring! A unique adventure that takes you away from the crowds on the slopes!
