The resort, considered a cradle of winter sports in Romania (from the royal skiing on Poiana Peleşului, at the beginning of the 20th century) boasts a complex skiing area, but provocative for skiers with a certain experience. (2103 m alt., Peak Peak) and this comes with a number of advantages and disadvantages, which we will try to explain point by point.
If we were to share the Sinaia ski area for a better understanding of it, we would do it from the top down, like this:
1 - The Alpine area is situated on the top of the mountain, at 2000 meters, on two valleys in Bucegi plateau: Valea Dorului and Valea Soarelui. This is the highest area.
2 - The abrupt area is between 2000 and 1400 and is the "cherry" on the Sinai skiing cake. And when we say that, we remember why it became popular in the last decade. Carpul, Tîrlele, Papagalul and other skiing trails, unspoiled and steep (Carpul is the steepest homologated slope in our country) have become, over time, the reason for which powder and freeride enthusiasts chose Sinaia as a playground.
3 - The sub-alpine forest area refers to the area below 1400. It is represented by the New Pole (which is old, but so is the name) with a length of 3 km and a difference of 400 meters. It is a low altitude, intermediate slope, easily accessible by Gondola 1 (1000-1400 km) and served by an artificial snow installation. Starts at 1400 and runs through the woods to the Gondola 1 departure station. There's also a beginner's track, served by a baby-ski facility.
