Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: Situated in the heart of the Bucegi Mountains and reaching the highest altitude in Romania a cable has reached– 2050 m, Sinaia Gondola can be seen as the transition point between sky and earth, between beautiful and spectacular. The 1000-1400 section of Sinaia Gondola starts from Furnica neighborhood, reaching 1400 elevation. This section was opened in 2007, having 34 gondolas, each being able to carry up to eight people. The length of this section is 1312 meters. The maximum transportation capacity is 1700 people / hour and the gondolas are provided with external pockets for skis and snowboards. The 1400-2000 section of Sinaia Gondola is one of the latest and most performant cable installations from Europe and around the Globe, merging the two ski areas from Sinaia: the low and high altitude ski areas. Being equipped with ultramodern functioning systems and the latest technology in its field, the 1400-2000 section of Sinaia Gondola has two diesel engines and the latest energy saving system, named Direct Drive, which ensures a 20% reduction in electricity consumption as against traditional systems. This new section of Sinaia Gondola establishes three national records: the installation reaches the highest altitude in Romania – 2050 meters; in Valea cu Brazi area it reaches the biggest height from the ground ever recorded by an installation of this kind, 120 meters; this installation crosses the steepest segment of a cable installation – 45 degrees at the first three pylons. Soarelui Chairlift was developed for the slopes on the west side, being a modern cable installation with 85 chairs. The retractable cupola, ecological red leather seather, alongside with the silent engines offer tourists the most confortable chairlift trips from Romania. Partia Noua skilift is a babyski set for people learning how to ski or snowboard. It is situated at the end of Partia Noua slope. Throughout the skilift’s distance there is a nocturne installed which is perfectly suited for extended skiing or snowboarding days.

We are not skier but we took the gondola up the mountain all the way to the top (change at 1400 m).

The view on the top was breath taking.

Highly recommend to add this attraction to your trip.

The gondola is new and offers incredible views both to 1400m and to 2100m. The slopes were also pretty tidy (but I don't have any other experiences to justify a comparison). But services really suck... there are only extremly dirty portable toilets, only a very small fast food and basically no place to get warm a little.

Having been here a few days, having heard all of the excuses I can confirm Sinaia is not a ski resort, rather a troubled area with some snow and ski lifts that don't run when the city hall cant be bothered. Having to buy two ski passes in one advertised ski area is insane and all because the children in the city hall can't agree who's the boss.

Only the tourist suffer in this "resort". I can bet no one returns having been subject to this poorly ran area. The lifts are closed too often especially when the ski numbers are low, due to bad winds, they say. I was at the top of the mountain during these "bad winds" and you couldn't fly a kite. Such a wasted area of natural beauty. Whoever runs city hall needs to leave quickly, whoever runs Teleferic SA, needs to leave quickly and one person (maybe someone who is good a customer service, is interested in Sinaia prospering, rather than their own bank account) should step in and take over.

To summarise, this is not a Ski resort, go somewhere else to ski, but if you want to
Get nice views, make sure you buy all the access cards you need from whichever operator you need to and enjoy.

We are so sorry that your source of information was so subjective. Clearly. Sinaia is not a troubled area with some snow, it is one of the best ski resorts that Romania can offer. Hint: https://www.romania-insider.com/best-ski-resort-romania/

Politics has nothing to do with strong winds and we are happy to tell you that today, after 77 days of ski this season, from nov 29 till today - we had only 8 days without working with the public, due to this strong winds that happen so often on the Bucegi Plateau. We are sure that with a clean eye, maybe next season, you willl find Sinaia more charming just for what it is. Cheers!

The view is great and unexpected, in a Saturday morning, the gondola was clear and we did not wait at all. The employees are given advices and information about the region. If you arrive in Sinaia, definitely you need to visit Cota 2000 by Gondola Sinaia.

Thank you for your review! :) The view is indeed unexpected especially on the Carp Gondola (1400-2000), and truly mesmerizing on clear sky days. We are happy that you enjoyed your time!
