A new skiing area was opened on Monday, December 26th, 2011, in Romania's most famous skiing resort, Poiana Brasov, which is located just 12 km (~7.5 miles) away from the city of Brasov. Following an investment of 25 million Euro (plus VAT), the Poiana Brasov ski area increased by 50 hectares to 85 hectares (~210 acres), extending the total length of the ski slopes from 16 km (~10 miles) to 24 km (~15 miles). Thanks to the modernization of the slopes and the installation of artificial snow machines, the ski season can now be extended to four months a year.
