The little known Romanian resort of Sinaia has been investing in its ski area and will shortly host its first FIS World Cup ski and snowboard competitions.

The men and women’s slalom and giant slalom ski races are heading to Sinaia in March (5-6th), while snowboard cross events take place there the following week.

The international events take place for the first time in the resort’s Dorului Valley. To improve facilities in the ski area, which is Romania’s main resort after Poiana Brasov, the resort has installed a new lift for the 2010/11 season.

The fast quad goes top to bottom of the Dorului area (a length of 1610m) and serves two new red runs. It opened in December 2010. This is the first new lift for Sinaia in two years – a new eight-seat gondola was installed in 2008 as an alternative to the existing cable car up to the ski area at Cota 1400.

Sinaia has slopes to 2000m, with the most reliable snow record in Romania. Much of the lift system has been modernized in recent years. The slopes amount to just over 40km, spanning two sides of the mountain – at least half of those are black and red runs.
