EVENTS: In search of snow for the ski competitions in the mountain centers of Cluj county – 2020

Authors: Laura Ionescu, Cristian Potoră


 In the 2019-2020 winter season that has now ended, snow was not abundant, so that the last competition scheduled to take place in Sâncraiu, was no longer held.

The other competitions took place under normal conditions, between 18 January and 16 February 2020, in the following order: Rogojel, Beliș, Râșca, Mărișel, Măguri Bogdănești, Băișoara. Tradition develops slowly but surely. Băișoara has the longest tradition in organizing these mountain cross-country skiing competitions, with the Little Mountain Hunters Cup as a competition in its own right. The competition was initiated in 1973, and this year its 41st edition was held.

Key words: winter season, tradition, rural areas
