Daily schedule

Day 1 - Welcome to Bucegi National Park Mtns

On the first day, we will start from our Boarder’s Cottage accommodation in Sinaia and we will have an avalanche search workshop on the slope, where we will test our avalanche rescue equipment, and then assess our riding skills in an accommodation tour on the slopes, then ride down a forest run towards our chalet accommodation. Your compulsory individual gear must include the standard avalanche emergency kit: DVA transceiver, probe and shovel. Optional, we can stop for dinner at Taverna Sarbului traditional restaurant. Afterwards we shall decide together the schedule for the next two days.

Day 2 - Bucegi Mtns Epic Ride (full day)

On the second day, after a consistent breakfast we will start from the chalet in Sinaia and we’l take the gondola lift up to Cota 2000 mountain top. Than we will approach the routes based on your experience – for those looking for new lines and secret spots, Sinaia is a heaven with numerous places between Bucegi and Baiului mountains. For those who want to learn and progress we have enough time to convince you that off piste snowboarding is your new hobby! We will have the lunch break on the mountain with the goodies from our backpack and we will end the day with an epic long descent, all the way down to the famous Peles castle, from where we have 10 min. walk back to our Boarder’s Cottage accommodation.

Day 3 - Baiului Mtns backcountry ride

The third day is dedicated to the beautiful Baiului mountains, next door neighbors to the Bucegi National Park. We start the climb with the gondola in Azuga remote resort and hike after up to the ridge where we will be greeted by a breathtaking view of the surrounding valleys and mountain ranges. The descent follows the long mellow ridges covered with snow, before hitting a few epic powdered tree runs in the wild forest, our secret spots, then back to the shuttle driving us to our accommodation in Sinaia. After lunch, there is an optional visit to the Sinaia’s Peles Castle, the residency of the Romanian monarchs (15 EUR).

Accommodation 

Boarder’s Cottage, newly refurbished mountain chalet with spectacular view over Baiului mountains. Very quiet area, 10 mins walk downtown Sinaia, where all restaurants and facilities are.

Strătilă Marius

Certified mountain guide & MIAS Mountain Bike Leader
“Backcountry snowboarding and enduro mountain biking are part of me, they define who I am. For me, they are more than just a way to escape crowded and overused resorts. They are a way to push limits and get out of the comfort zone, a way to explore and to discover. That perfect mix of silence and grandeur that only a mountain can offer, the freedom to climb on your own, to define your route and follow it, the power to use your body strength to move forward and to enjoy downhill rides and fresh turns, no matter what season is out there – this is what defines me and what I want to share. The path is the same, only the texture is different.”

Tiberiu Macaveiu

Certified mountain guide, snow surfer, mtb trails builder & events organizer, since 1994
“Ride the most amazing Carpathian backcountry lines! Feel the wild, untouched nature! Taste the best of the local attractions, culture and history like a local would. That’s the ShredMind way we love to share with our riding partners!"
Does this look like fun?

Location

Discover the Carpathian mountains!

Discover some of the best backcountry runs of Romania. The Carpathian Mountains are among the wildest mountains in Europe. Because backcountry ridingis not so popular yet, our country can offer you the freedom western countries have lost years ago. Hidden paths and virgin woods will be on the menu every day. From the steepest valleys, to the deepest forests, the Carpathians will offer a complete range of landscapes even to the most skeptical rider. In case of bad weather, we have really good backup spots up in the mountains which will allow access to safe areas.

“Marius is excellent rider and guide. He took us to beautiful trails and found great restaurants and services for us ”

“Our guide Marius was excellent both in guiding and giving riding tips. He provided a wonderful excursion up into the Carpathian mountains. We went higher than I thought I could ride, and his instructions improved my mountain biking skills, both climbing and descending. What a lovely trip we had! Thank you and I highly recommend this tour. ”
