Ski Touring in Poiana Brașov, Postăvaru Massif
The activity starts with learning or reviewing the technical basics of ski touring. This will be done on an easy slope (most likely on the Bradul slope) after which we will start climbing up the edge of the slope, then through the forest to the Postavaru Chalet. Along the way, we will take short breaks to rest (to catch our breath) as well as to check and improve our climbing technique, especially where the slope changes. Postavaru Chalet is the highest point of our route today, where we will relax in the company of hot tea.
The trail is ~4km long and the estimated climbing time is between 1h and 1h30min depending on the ability and level of physical training of the participants. After the well-deserved break at the chalet and hot tea, we dress thicker and start the descent back to the starting point, which can be done in approx. 15-30min.
In order not to overlap with other skiers, we recommend that this tour starts after 16:00. During the tour we will use headlamp to light our way.
Note: This experience does not represent a ski lesson, the participants must have sufficient alpine skiing knowledge, and be able to ski without difficulty and in all conditions on minimum blue level slopes. For the safety of the participants, the guide - experienced instructor, will be the only one who will make the best decision about the route to follow, the way to descend, but also if the participants have enough technical skills to ski safely.
