The Tarcu Mountains in the western part of the southcarpathian mountains is the wintersportsarea with most snowfalls in Romania. The highest peak is Vârful Căleanu, 2.196 m. The Mountain range offers mostly easy terrain, a good selection of runs that have up to 800 m vertical drop. This resort is ideal for heliski beginners and freeriders who like to enjoy and take it easy.
Minimum group size 8 persons, we coordinate your request to get up to the required number of skiers and boarders.
Our base is situated in the skiarea Muntele Mic, which is ca 130 km from International Airport Timisoara at an altitude of 1.520 meters.
Or by car, for example 800 km from Vienna.
We use the mountainhotel Nordica or aequivalent lodging and eat at the lovely rustic restaurant Galeata just beside the hotel. This can be reached by a double chairlift or by car. In case the road is not cleared due to massive snowfalls its possible to reach Muntele Mic via snowmobile pick up.
The rooms are equipped with shower and toilet with modern standard. We have dinner and breakfast in the rustic restaurant next door. Food is from outstanding quality, typical banatian, one can feel the hungarian influence. Its worth, trying the typical Tuica or Palinka, clear fruit firewater from the local distilleries.
On „badweatherdays” one can go freeriding by using the lifts and hike a bit, avalanche training with your mountainguides or if possible by the locals, one can rent at extra costs snowmobiles and a snowmobile guide and go for a ride through the amzingly wild forests .
Because of the geographical position this wintersports wonderland has more snow than any other area in romania. Its aswell the most sunny place in wintertime in romania.
