Snowkite in Sinaia/Romania – an important gravitational event. Thus between 21st-27th of February the most famous participants in the country as well as guests from abroad are invited to Sinaia Cota 2000 to attend the snow-kite – and speedfly contest WINTER AIR SPORTS – 2011.
Our mission is to promote snowkiting both on national and international level.
WINTER AIR SPORTS is held on the Cota 2000 Sinaia plateau, next to the Cota 2000 cable cabin having the basis at the upper station of the Valea Dorului ski lift. The Cota 2000 area in Sinaia is ideal for the development of this area of leisure activity, representing a real alternative to the more popular winter sports types. We may say its is unique in Eastern Europe for practicing snowkiting: the 2000m altitude grants plenty of snow up to April and the area is enormous with friendly slopes. Wind conditions are also perfect throughout the entire wintertime.
The participation fee is 200 RON, for applications via internet, and 250 RON for application on site, and comprises:
– free access to the cable car and cabin for Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
– accommodation for Thursday Friday and Saturday nights
