Home is where your soul is
“No matter what you write, you actually can’t help retelling a fairy tale somewhere along the way.” Catherynne M. Valente
Every year begins with a story. My story is the same, although it is different every time I tell it. Can you imagine where I am now? I think you’ve already figured it out. I’m at the Transalpina Ski Resort, but this time only with the thought, although I can feel the fresh snow and the snowboard is waiting for me to take it to its favourite place. My soul flies in a dream where a new adventure season awaits me. I think everyone has become accustomed to the fact that most of my posts in winter refer to slopes and the place that has become for us the second home, Ski Resort Transalpina.
Ski Resort Transalpina continues to become a benchmark for practising winter sports every year, and the fact that here we are talking first of all of quality and not quantity I think it is a very good starting point and I think everybody should appreciate the fact that the most beautiful skiing field in Romania makes absolutely all possible human efforts to ensure the best conditions for those who want to spend wonderful days here. Under improvements for this year much has happened. The parking has been completed and the slopes have been modified in such a way as to offer a more dynamic experience to those who choose to come here. I prefer to let everyone discover this, without revealing too many details, you will experience it directly here. If last season the equipment rental centre was right at the base of the ski slope next to the cash desk, this year Alpina Ski has moved to the main road access area and awaits you with top-quality equipment. Although the opening of the slope started with some technical problems that are not related to the slope administration, I think it is very important to mention and clarify some aspects even with the risk of being sarcastic. It is important to listen, to understand and not to make hasty conclusions. The most important aspect is related to the road and the accommodations in the area. This is not about the administration. There are some accommodation options if you call early and here I want to mention a few places that I visited and where I had the opportunity to stay, it is Chalet Vânatorul, Hanul Haiducilor, Transalpina Lac and the chalet in Obârsia Lotrului. These are only four of the existing locations, and their contact details are easily found on the internet. The road is up to the authority in question and you can address them directly with questions about its condition. I think we should take a step back and look at all the positive aspects and leave the mischievous assertions aside, the team here is working day and night to ensure impeccable conditions of the slope.
Is it too hard to enjoy the fact that we have an absolutely sensational slope? Every single line I have here has something unique, neither is the same as the other, and every turn has a specific emotion. For me, this place has something absolutely unique, as if my soul remained captive here and can not be freed from any spell.
