Three meters of snow in a mountain resort in Vâlcea – Video

You can’t even see the roof of the house.


Three meters (about 10 feet) of snow in the mountain resort Vârful lui Roman, in Vâlcea County, Romania. The images were captured by the owner of a holiday home in the area, who was amazed by the thick layer of snow.

In fact, on Vârful Roman, at 1700 meters altitude, it snowed daily for a week, so that the snow came to measure three meters. The person who filmed the images estimates that the snow could only melt in 5-6 months.

“You can’t see the roof, the fence … we jump over it. How can we open another gate ?! We jump over it … The door is no longer visible, to enter … I’ll have work to do!”, is heard on the recording.

  1. Just like in the movie ‘Day after tomorrow’ where they walk on the malls glass roof!!!

    • That’s why they have to color them, because your white eggs are a tough find in all that snow.

  2. Do I detect an uncanny likeness of the current occurrence of severe winter weather and those ice age maps on your site? Are there any maps that also show climate conditions beyond the ice sheets, such as extremely wet or drought stricken areas during glacial times?

    • I’d be interested to see those as well. We’ve gotten almost 3x the normal rain here in NC over the last year.
