Come and have fun in the snow at Durău Resort!

If you want to have fun and enjoy the snow, then you should definitely go to Durău Resort. Winter sports lovers can spend two weekends at the foothill of Ceahlău Massif. Durău Park has an ideal slope for sledding and skiing, both for amateurs and advanced skiers.

Having a length of 406 meters and a width of at least 62 meters, a level difference of 35 meters and an average degree of difficulty, the slope was reopened to the public in 2012. The ski lift system was upgraded in December 2018 consisting of a double cross chairlift system, with a total transport capacity of 1200 people/hour. There is also a slope (less than 200 meters) and platter lift for beginners, intended for use of children, beginners and for sledging.

Snow Festival includes ski and sledding competitions, spectacular slalom or speed skiing, laser light games, fireworks, music and disco party with well-known artists, and many other surprises.

In the proximity of the main slope there is a ski and sledging equipment rental center. Snow cannons and night lighting are also available. For those willing to learn to practice winter sports, skiing and snowboarding monitors are willing to offer their assistance.

Durău Resort is a special and favorite place for tourists all year round. Here is the starting point for the two routes that lead on the plateau on Ceahlău Massif, also called “the mountain of prayer and shepherding”, “the only holy mountain in Romania” and the second one in the Christian world, after Mount Athos, having its Dedication Day on the 6th of August. Not few are the tourists who, once on top of Ceahlău Massif, hardly wait to come back again, as the mountain fascinates through the amazing panoramic views, the charming trails, and numerous rocks carrying stories and legends of their own.

During winter, Durău Resort offers visitors a fairytale like scenery which cannot be put into words.
