“Martin, Andy and Santiago” have filmed themselves making the first turns of 21-22 at Păltiniș ski area in Transylvania, Romania, on snowboards.

The area, along with many ski areas across Eastern Europe, reported a moderate snowfall at the end of last week, the first of the autumn.

Although eight ski resorts have opened in Austria, Italy and Switzerland for the 21-22 season already this is possible the first ride on fresh snow this autumn in the northern hemisphere at a ski area  below 2000m altitude and without a glacier.

The Arena Platoș ski area at Păltiniș is located 1440m up in the Cindrel Mountains.
