Ski resort Zanoaga in Bran mountain is ready for winter sports lovers

Located in the Bran mountain 3.5 km away from the Bran Castle, the Zanoaga ski area resort was inaugurated at the end of the week of December 10- 16, 2012. In addition, a slope for sledges was set up next to the ski slopes.

The ski area includes 2 ski slopes for expert skiers and one with a length of 1 km for the beginners. It is equipped with night lighting installation, a snow making machine and cable transport installation.

The public-private investment was made in several stages. The city hall provided the land and the utilities, and the investor spent some hundreds of thousands of euros on its construction.

'Prices are lower by half compared to Poiana Brasov or other mountain resorts on the Prahova Valley, and the skiing conditions are as good as the others,' Bran Mayor Gheorghe Hermeneau told Agerpres.

At the foot of the slopes there is a mountain rescue center, a ski and sledge rental center, a parking lot, souvenir stores, restaurants and kiosks selling traditional products of the region.
