Bâlea Lake is „the spot” for snowboarding and freeskiing in Romania. Situated in the middle of Transylvanian Alps, with an elevation of 2400 m, is a wild resort with only one cable-car, no slopes and an immense rideable terrain. It is also the cradle of freeriding in Romania, it is where it all begun back in the days, and also where evolution is takeing place. The resort was made by the will of the communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu, because he wanted to have a house near his biggest project, The Transfagarasan, one of the craziest mountain roads in the world. Time has gone, Ceausescu died, and the mountain got back to the nature lovers.
