The Arieseni ski experience, Romania
On Saturday morning we arrived to Arieseni with some friends. We had a reservation for a night in the 'Cabana Art' pension. It was a really nice place opened in December the previous year, so it was very new :) Our room was on the third floor, if I remember well, and from our balcony we could see the ski trails.
After leaving our things at the reception (we could get in our room only after 12) we went to ski. There were quite many people on the trails, so we headed to the beginner one to avoid the skiers who came down with an amazing speed :) The weather was fine, maybe a bit too warm, the sun was shining all day.
After spending some hours with skiing we get back to the pension to eat something. The pension's restaurant is nice, bright and friendly. It's not too big, so it seems like it's always crowded. We ate only a soup because we got so big portions that we weren't hungry at all after it.
In the evening we went back to ski. Both of the ski trails have lights which are on till 9 pm. Skiing when it's dark outside is interesting :) I felt that I could see better than in the sunlight.

Recommended Arieseni Guide
Set in the hearth of the Apuseni mountains Arieseni, this tiny ski resort is well known mostly in the northern part of Romania. If you come from Hungary you enter Romania at the North West border in the city of Oradea then head towards Beius. It is located at the border of Bihor and Alba counties. The road is usually clean but with a lot of curves and it is better if you come equipped with chains. You can park near the slope but on Saturdays and Sundays it gets pretty crowded so it is better if you leave your car at the lodge.... Read more »
