Day 0 - Welcome in Brasov!
Meeting at the airport and transfer to Brasov. We decide together the itineraries for the next days.

Depending of the general condition of the group we can do 2 descents. Highlights: the start is on the plateau from where the scenery changes into a steep valley which goes down all the way to Brasov city.
Day 2 - Ciucaș Mountains
410 m - Downhill / 350 m – Uphill A rather easy mountain where we will make up to 5 or 6 descents. Even if the weather is bad or the snow conditions ar poor, you will always find good places to ride in Ciucas.
Duration 6-7 hours.
Day 3 - Bâlea Freeride Arena I
710 m - Downhill / 690 m – Uphill In our community Bâlea is known as Alaska. You will understand immediately why. With its own climate and peaks over 2300 m we can descent multiple times till the sun comes down.
Duration: all day.
Day 4 - Bâlea Freeride Arena II
1190 m - Downhill / 490m – Uphill Because there are endless riding spots, we will return. This time we go down on the N-E mountain side.
Day 5 - Bâlea Freeride Arena III
If the conditions are good we will ride the south face of the mountains. If we are lucky, we will have clear sky on the wide slopes enjoying the sun. However don't forget to bring a sunscreen lotion.
Day 6 - Last day
Depending on your flight departure and on the snow conditions we will ride down Doamnei Valley or Bâlea Valley. Then airport transfer and ... and thanks for coming and hope to see you again.
Backup stage - Postavaru / Sinaia
As we're not fortune tellers and cannot predict the weather, we cannot promise you clear skies, so we'll have to adapt to the forecast. In case of fog or high avalanche risk, we have enough places to ride safely. Forests or regular slopes, we will find a spot with good snow. No matter what we choose steep valleys or steel cable cars, all we need is snow. According to the weather forecast we'll choose what is best for our team: off-piste or resort.
