Private ski lessons in Poiana Brasov resort Romania

Dan privet!
Truly speaking I’m not fond of writing, so the mere fact of this message being written shows my great respect to the site owner.
We met Daniel in January 2012, when we came to Sinaia with a firm intention to master the alpine skiing. Until then our skiing experience didn’t exceed training slopes in the vicinities of Moscow. We contacted Daniel and agreed our lessons by email.
So he began skiing with us for 2.5 – 3 hours six days on end with a definite intention to make us “start moving”. This is a rather unique trait among coaches which inspires respect to Daniel. Besides that, the learning was constantly upgrading – on mastering an easy skill you move forward to a more complex one. Thus you have strength to cope with each new task or exercise.
This is not the case when an excellent ski instructor is skiing ahead of the knocking themselves out trainees, and no matter how they do it. It is also worth mentioning that there was low snow on Cota 2000 on the first three days and we had to train right on the red route of Dorului, which also characterizes Daniel as an experienced coach who can not only take responsibility for the trainee’s safety on the slope, but teach him as well. And he really did that! Snow fell at our final lessons and then we start enjoying speed, sense of flight andcontrollable skis.
On our return to Russia the slopes in the vicinities of Moscow seemed just hillocks to us…and we decided on going to Dolomites in Vale di Fasse. Those who have been there must know the routes of Sella Ronda – true read, as they say, and even black in places.
It was our exam on the skills learned, and we passed it! This time we were skiing alone, without a coach. To say this was our first season seems enough…nothing to add.
We keep on skiing now, work out the carve technique. In the Season of 2013 we appeared in Sinaia and Dolomites. In January 2014 we explored Poiana Brasov with Daniel, again in the extreme conditions of the lack of snow. Thank you, Daniel! In your absence we would either crash or give up skiing ))) But we made the most of these three days! The Olympic routes of Poiana Brasov passed the test. Dolomites are next in our plans. PHOTOS

"Всем любителям горных лыж привет!
Как говорится, не люблю писать, но сам факт этого послания, говорит о большом уважении к владельцу данного сайта.Познакомились мы с Даниилом в январе 2012 года, когда приехали в Синаю с твердым намерением освоить горные лыжи.
До этого опыт катания был самый минимальный - учебные горки в Подмосковье.
Списались по е-майлу и договорились о занятиях.
Так вот Даниил катался с нами 6 дней подряд по 2.5 - 3 часа. С явным намерением добиться от нас результата, что бы мы "поехали".
Это очень редкое качество среди инструкторов, за что большой респект Даниилу.
Второй момент - занятия были построены таким образом, что обучение шло по нарастающей - освоил простой элемент - переходим к более сложному.
Таким образом каждая вновь поставленная задача или упражнение были тебе по силам.
Не было такого - впереди едет прекрасный инструктор - сзади корячатся ученики - не важно как.
Еще хочу отметить, что первые три занятия снега было маловато на Кота 2000 и пришлось выйти сразу на красную трассу Дорулай,
что тоже характеризует Даниила как опытного инструктора,
который, способен не только взять на себя ответственность за безопасность ученика на склоне, но еще и научить.
И научил! На последних занятиях выпал снежок и мы уже получали удовольствие от скорости, ощущения полета, что лыжи тебя слушаются.
По возвращению в Россию подмосковные склоны показались нам пригорками....и мы решились на поездку в Доломиты в Валь ди Фассу.
Если кто там был знает - трассы Селла Ронда - нормальные такие, как говориться честные красные, а местами и черные.
Это был наш экзамен на полученные навыки. И мы его успешно сдали. Катались самостоятельно, без инструктора.
И это все на первом сезоне - ну что тут еще добавить.
Сейчас продолжаем кататься, шлифуем технику карва. В сезоне 2013 отметились в Синаи и Доломитах.
В январе 2014 с Даниилом освоили Пояну Брашов - опять в экстримальных условиях отсутствия снега. Даниил спасибо!
Без тебя мы бы убились или вообще не смогли бы кататься))) Но три дня были наши! Олимпийским трассам Пояны Брашов - зачет.
Планируем поездку в Доломиты.
С уважением,
Елена и Александр .

Hiking vacation in Carpathian garden

Beginning of September together with my friends and former colleagues Helmut Hochwallner, Franz Oppenauer, on the first day also Kurt Lieskounig was with us and our guide Dan Sorica we went to the Romanian Carpatians. We arrived Otopeni airport on Saturday late afternoon and went straight on to Sinaia where we stayed overnight in the very nice Villa Camelia. On Sunday morning we moved on to Fagaras/Balea Lac and at about lunch time we started our walk to the Molodoveanu peak. After an almost seven hours walk hill up and hill down we arrived the hut Podragu, 2.136m and stayed overnight there.

Next day morning we went on via Vistea Mare Peak (2.535m) and about lunch time we arrived on the Moldoveanu Peak (2.544m). We enjoyed the view from the top and the special lunch. We followed a partially very steep and burdensome path. As it was a very sunny day we run out of water and were very lucky to find a spring. Passing the "Fereastra Mare" we finally arrived Sambatei hut after about 10hrs walk. Even it was a very simple hut we were happy to find a bed and spent the evening on a campfire chatting with other hikers.

Next day morning there was light rain we went through the Sambatei Valley. We visited Brancoveanu-Monastery and took a taxi back on Pass Fagaras/Paltinu Hut to pick up our own car. From there we had a short visit in Sibiu center and Sigishoara and drove to Moeciu in a very nice hotel.

Next day we went to Bran and drove to the Fantana lui Botorog to start the walk on the La Om highest peak in Piatra Craiului (Königstein-Gebirge). It starts with a steep rise of 2,5 hrs to arrive Cabana Curmatura (1.470m). Compared to the prior huts a luxury accommodation although the hut was under renovation. But I have also to mention that no road leads to the hut Sambatei and Pogradu and the supply has to be carried out by donkey caravans.

Next morning start to the peak. Steep way up sometimes almost climbing we pass Ascuit (2.150m), Timbalul Mare (2.177m) and reach after 2hrs. the La Om peak (2.238m). In total we had a nine hours walk on that day. The weather was good for walking but there was heavy wind blowing.

Next day we planned an easy walk and went the Canionul Sapte Scari. We arrived the Cabana Piatra Mare (1.630m) means up 1.000m from our start. It wasn't easy at all. Also there the weather was good for walking with some rain and wind. Then we visited Brasov and went to Sinaia to Villa Camelia again.

Last day on our trip we went up with the tele kabina to Cabana Miorita (1.987m). Very relaxed we went down to the middle station, took lunch and drove back to BUCHAREST airport. 

It was a partially hard but very nice trip. The weather was fine for a walk and the paths very well marked. No injuries and we didn't encounter bears.

I hope that I have soon the chance to take another trip to Romanians mountains. The only sore point was that I couldn't manage to visit you in BUCHAREST office. I'll make up this on my next trip ;-). The PHOTOS

Walking tour in Carpathians mountains 

We spent two enjoyable weeks in June with Dan, hiking and touring in the Bucegi mountains. Dan was a great host and guide for our visit.
He was professional and well-organized throughout the trip, from the dining and sleeping arrangements at each of the chalets to the perfect timing of the comfortable bus meeting us at the trailheads. Each day of hiking led us to incredible views and Dan’s companionship and knowledge of the region added a lot to our enjoyment. PHOTOS

Thanks for a great trip, Dan!

Exploring wild Carpathians 

My boyfriend (Robert Rajeczky) and I visit Romania in August 2006. we stay at a lovely little bed and breakfast in Sinaia that was arranged by a really great tour guide (Danny Sorica). The weather at that time was perfect....60's 80's during the day and 40's - 60's during the night. Danny took us hiking up the Bucegi mountains (part of the Transylvanian Alps). We took a train ride to Predeal (ski resort town). Drove to Brasov (historical city). Went to Transilvania to Dracula's castle. We visited churches, monasteries, toured the royal palace in Sinaia (before the communism took over, the country was rules by kings and queens )

Danny also to us to fabulous restaurants (mainly delicious traditional food). some of my favourites are schnitzel, papansi (desert), and most definitely have teh vegetables, fruits, cheeses, sausages an fresh breads... Over allthe mountains (picturesque), weather, sites, people, food were wonderful.   Click for PHOTOS
