On Sunday we woke up in the morning, ate something, and then we went to ski a bit. But after a couple of hours we felt that we are too tired, my feet ached because I wasn't used with my new ski boots, so we returned to the pension.

After packing our bags we decided to go on a trip with some friends. One of the guys knew a place called 'Groapa Ruginita' in Romanian which means the rusty pit - this is the deepest ground slide in Romania. First we had to walk about ten minutes on the normal road for cars, and then in a corner we reached the starting point to the pit. We had to climb and walk in the 10-20 centimeters high snow. All the trees, plants and everything around us was covered by snow - it was beautiful. I think I haven't seen so much snow in my life :)

After about an hour walk we reached our destination. The pit has an orange-reddish color this is why it's called rusty. But we didn't see much of it - there was fog all over the pit, or maybe those were clouds. After making some pictures we met another group of hikers who came from another direction. They said that that track leads back to the town as well. It wasn't too late so we decided to take that path back.

At first we followed the footprints of the group which came on this path but after some time we saw that their footprints aren't following the path we thought is leading down to Arieseni... so we decided to take another way down :) This path wasn't used so the snow was about 50 centimeters high. Someone of us fell down once in every two minutes... it was fun :) Okay, it was fun till it started to get a bit darker outside and we haven't yet seen a house or a man. But when we started to get a bit frightened we heard voices, people shouting so we knew we are on the good path. At the end we came down the hill exactly behind our pension :) We couldn't believe it!

After changing clothes (we were all wet from the snow) and relaxing a bit we headed to our cars to go home.

This was a very nice weekend, I enjoyed it very much! I hope next winter we can go back to this pension, and we will be able to see the Rusty Pit when it’s not so foggy.

Arieseni Travel guide

There are plenty of accommodation possibilities. The majority are lodges and range from 10 to 50 places. There are hotels too and some of them have restaurants, but that’s about it there are no shops around and few locals live here there are only lodges that are rented throughout the season. So the place is pretty unspoiled. Right next to the slope there are possibilities for ski, snowboard and sleigh rentals as well as small bars where you can warm up and have a cup of tea or hot wine. The place is rarely short of snow and most of the time it reaches a meter. It might not have the classy feel of the top skiing resorts, but it is... Read more »
