With a total length of 406m, a width of at least 62m, a level difference of 35m and an average degree of difficulty, Durău Park ski slope is an ideal place for skiing and sledding, both for amateurs and professionals. The slope was reopened in 2012 and has a ski lift system that was upgraded in December 2018, consisting of a double cross chairlift system, with a total transport capacity of 1200 people/hour. Also, a teleski for beginners serves the slope. A 200-meter-long cross was specially designed for children, beginners and for sledding.

The accommodation offer is diverse, so tourists can choose between guesthouses, hostels, motels and hotels from 2 to 4 stars, where the comfort, the attitude of the staff and the atmosphere are faultless.

Durău Resort is a both a special and favorite place for tourists throughout the year. From here, two trails leading to the plateau on Ceahlău Massif start. Ceahlău Massif is also called the Mount of Prayer and Shepherding, and is the only holy mountain in Romania having its dedication day on the 6th of August, and the second holy mountain for Christians everywhere, after Mount Athos. Not few are those who, once on top of Ceahlău Massif, hardly wait to come back, as the mountain fascinates through the beauty of landscapes, the unusual places and numerous rocks carrying stories and legends of their own. At the same time, Ceahlău Massif is widely known for the mysterious phenomena appearing here: “The Shadow of the Pyramid” and “The Stairway to Heaven”, visible especially on the 6th of August every year, when people celebrate “Ceahlău Mountain Festival”. Dating back in time more than 5 millennia, the strange phenomena are still being observed by scientists nowadays.

During winter, Durău Resort proposes tourists a fairy tale like scenery whose splendor words cannot tell.
