There are many small ski resorts in Romania, but I like skiing in Austria. Ski areas are larger, slopes are well mantained etc.

Goodbye bow knots! This is the end of tying shoelaces. Just slip your feet in and you're out the door. Never tie your shoes again!

There are only few small ski resorts in Romania. On the Carphatians is the biggest ski resort Jasná-Chopok in Low Tatras in Slovakia.
But I´ve heard that it is good skiing in Romania.

There are even a lot of Romanians who come skiing in Bulgaria (especially in Bansko resort) even though it's so much to the South and quite a lot of kms far away.

I've been skiing in Jasna in 3 winters. It's a nice and good resort (better than what I can find in Romania), but Austrian ones are better.

The Austrian ski resorts serve a much bigger market than those in Romania. Practically all of the Benelux and Germany (100 million+ people) go skiing there (Austria being closer than France and cheaper than Switzerland).

When you try big ski areas in France (like Val Thorens, Tignes, Alpe d'Huez ...) you don't want to ski anywhere else.

In other news, there is such heavy snowing here that I can barely see nearby buildings (it is snowing with 5 to even 10 cm per hour). Some motorways are completely closed with stuck drivers there - combination of heavy snowfall and 100+ km/h bora gusts. Not "every year" winter.

That is exactly what I always do. It is the most comfy way to put your shoes on and be ready to walk.

It's been snowing here for like 12 hours. Some guy from Beli Manastir can't get out with his car.

Oops, I meant 20 hours! And now I see I can't get out of my garage either. I'll go by bus then.

Last friday it took me 7 hours to go from Brescia to Ancona instead of the usual 3.5. Snowmageddon all the way from Modena to Ancona, average speed of 50 km/h.

Someone cleared snow in front of our garage, which resulted in a 2-metre pile of snow in front of the house.

A bit more and you can build a tunnel to access the sidewalk
