Ski season instructors in Romania gather at the main square in Brasov for the Christmas lights to be switched on

“We are all having a great time and happy now that we are all qualified instructors. We are all settling in well out here. Razvan is also the best rep we could’ve asked for and is very helpful with all situations!”

Cameron Cottell, 2017


“Enjoying it very much so far! Getting along very well with Grace and G, a good team here in the flat! Yeah it’s very cold but I prepared myself ready for the weather with about 5 under layers while I ski. The training is fab so far, have being skiing every day this week.”

Ski instructors in Poiana Brasov“Everything is great, we’ve been really busy with training and studying for the exam. This is a great opportunity for all of us!”

Razvan was amazing and a great friend while we were out there. I am hugely missing the project; life at home doesn’t compare! Work is much less exciting than being on the slopes all day!”

Henry Townsend, 2015


“I had the most amazing time in Brasov; I could not put into words the many different adventures and friends I made. Every aspect of our time in Romania was amazing and Razvan made such an effort to help us really feel part of the city. The other instructors at the ski school were also very fun and we got on really well with them, and they made a large effort to really introduce us to their country, language and culture. The accommodation was amazing and situated less than a minute from the centre of the city. The flat really felt like home and was much much better than I was expecting and really made it a lot easier to help us settle in. By the end of the trip it honestly felt like home, and having Razvan in the same building was great as we got to see him every day and it made keeping in contact with him much easier. The city was beautiful too and all the locals were so welcoming! I had the best time of my life in Romania!”

“The first few weeks in Romania went by in a flash and all my apprehensions were lifted. Brasov is similar to any European town with all your needs satisfied. I was welcomed very warmly by Razvan who settled me in and showed me around; he is always on hand or a quick phone call away. My first introductions at the ski school were very friendly and got me ready to qualify as a ski instructor.”
