Most slopes now have snow cannons installed. In 2013, Poiana Brașov hosted figure skating, alpine skiing and short track in the European Youth Olympic Winter Festival.
The resort is located at about 1,020 metres (3,350 feet)} above sea level near the city of Brașov in Romania and it is easily accessible by road. There are regular buses operated by Brașov Transit (RATBV) which serve the 12 km (7.5 mi) route between Brașov and Poiana Brașov (lines 20 and 100). The resort also runs minibuses to take visitors from hotels to the base of the ski runs from where they can hike or take a cable car to Cristianu Mare or Postăvaru summits.
Poiana Brașov has a temperate-continental climate. The average temperature in summer is 20 °C and in winter -4 °C. There is a snow cover of about 50–60 cm which lasts from mid-November until mid-March, for about 120 days a year. However one can expect snowfalls from the end of September.
Poiana Brașov is host to a number of hotels and restaurants, the majority of which cater for foreign tourists. Two of the better known restaurants are Șura Dacilor (The Dacians' Barn) and Coliba Haiducilor (The Outlaws' Shack). There is also one nightclub, Capra Neagră (The Chamois), adjacent to a pizza place which plays a mixture of Europop and dance music.
