Just a two-hour drive from Bucharest, Poiana Braşov is the most popular ski resort in the country. With lifts reaching 1,799m (5,902ft) in altitude, it offers 24.5km (15mi) of slopes, mostly greens and blues, making this resort perfect for beginners or those finding their ski feet again. The slopes are open from 9am to 9pm during the winter, with floodlights for night skiing.
