Skiing in Romania
Where are the best ski areas in Romania and how can one get to them? Can someone give me some details about this please?

The closest ski area to your location is Arieseni. In my opinion it isn't worth to go there for one day, because of the mess traffic, but it very nice when you sleep there. There are some nice hotels and motels too. For this check http://www.turismvirtual.ro/cazare/Arieseni/
The problem is, that the lifts are nearly useless, because of the tons of skier. You have to wait 30 mins to get to the lift.
It's ideal with kids or when you are beginner.
The classic places like Poiana Brasov, Sinaia, Predeal are such expensive, that it's better to go to Austria, where you have much much better conditions.
There are some other areas in Harguita for example which aren't so well knowned and crowded, but they are far from Oradea.

Carpathian Mountains offer many places for ski, but for touring ski and extreme ski as well. There are beautiful, wild landscapes in Prahova Valley and Rodnei Mountains for skiers, in Apuseni and Retezat for those who like touring ski and in Fagaras Mountains for extreme ski and Helski lovers:). I wrote a longer article about this especially for you and others who are interested, so that you can get more details here: http://www.travelgrove.com/community/users/marius_f/articles/80437/Ski%20resorts%20in%20Romania/ .
Of course there are many other resorts in Romania, I visited most of them myself:D If you have any other questions about the topic, do not hesitate to ask them, I - as an expert traveler:P - will surely answer.

You can go alse at Straja, it's a nice place for skiing. I was there last year. You have to arrive first to Lupeni wich is a is a mining city in the Jiu Valley in Hunedoara County and from there you at 15 or 18 km aproximately is Straja. Other places for skiing in Romania you can find in Maramures County at Cavnic or Borsa http://www.turismromanesc.ro/cazare-in-Borsa
but I don't know if you'll find some snow at this time.
