Old plans new resort
Romanian Town Revives 70 Year Old Plan for Ski Resort
A plan by the Northern Romanian town of Borsa to build an ‘Olympic ski run,’ an idea that was reported to have been first mooted in the 1940s, has been raised again.

According to Romanian media reports the plan involves building the longest ski slope in Romania, although the length is not specified.

A 10 million Euro plan has been put together which also involves a ski lift with a capacity of 1,800 people per hour, a snow-making system, and floodlights for night skiing.

“The first idea of an Olympic ski slope was brought up in the 1940s when, in Borsa, the members of a sports club began building a tourist resort for winter sports, which would have hosted the Winter Olympics in 1948. The war stopped the project, which was then resumed several times by the communist authorities in the 1960s, as well as after the year 2000, but various problems were encountered,” said Sorin Timis, the mayor of Borsa.
The full project is to be submitted to Romania’s Ministry of Tourism after February 15th with a view to start work later in the year and potentially open the centre for winter 2019/2020 season.

The single run and lift are part of a grander plan to create an area with nine lifts, 25km of runs, biathlon range and cross-country skiing tracks and a trampoline complex.
