Arieseni, the best place for winter sports, Romania
At the time we were there a festivity was taking place. This was the Celebration of the Snow, or in romanian 'Sarbatorile Zapezii'. This is a two day festival which is organized in every year. People from the surrounding area come here to see the show, not only who would like to ski but families with children and others who like music, eating and watching the different performances on the stage.
Usually there is some kind of music when we are on the ski trails but it's not loud enough to hear it from the top. Now this wasn't a problem :) In the morning and in the afternoon different contests were taking place on the little stage, then in the evening folk and pop bands were singing.
Like at any other festival many little 'shops' opened only for these days. They were selling many kinds of useless but funny things. One was a cap with strange-colored hair. Strange I mean orange, neon-green, purple, etc. In the afternoon half of the skiers had this kind of caps, of course...
At about 10 o'clock in the evening all the lights were turned down and about 30 skiers came down slowly on the longer ski trail with torches on their hand. When they were down, they lined up and fireworks started at the top of the trail. It was really nice :)

Recommended Arieseni Guide
The resort is situated at an elevation of 950m and it has mostly the basic ingredients for a ski resort, nothing fancy, quite rustic and peaceful. Reservation in advance is required if you want to go for the weekend. Prices are reasonable and range from 20 to 50 Euros a night but they go rocket high for Christmas or New year’s Eve. The slope is 900 m long and it is illuminated by night. It is regularly groomed and of medium difficulty. There is also a smaller slope next to it and beginners and those who want to go sleighing are safe there. Getting up is easy as there is a cable that has a good capacity.... Read more »
