Romania's Skiing Tracks 3 Times Less than Bulgaria's

Date: 30.12.2005

Mountains form about a third of Romania's relief and the country is about three times bigger than Bulgaria, yet it only has a third of the skiing tracks that it's Southern neighbor boasts, a Romanian newspaper has stated.

Bulgarians had been quicker in understanding that the mountain tourism business meant expensive skiing resorts and big competitions, Romanian Cotidianul wrote.

Romania, on the other side, has still kept its equipment since the period between the two world wars, the newspaper says. Although the sport has been practiced in the country for over 80 years, and the relief is favorable, the Romanian winter sports still paid the dues of party decisions taken fifty years ago, Constantin Arghiropol, Secretary General of Romanian Ski Biathlon Federation, has said.

The country has a total of eleven tracks that are compatible with the International Ski Federation requirements, the newspaper states.
