The ski area is located at Obârșia Lotrului – Voineasa, in the north-west of Valcea county. The distance from Voineasa to the ski area is about 34 km. The access road is in good condition, occasional works may take place for maintenance or repairs.

The area of Lake Vidra Obârșia Lotrului, Voineasa – Vâlcea, an important tourist attraction in Romania, has since 2012 a ski slope that completes the tourist offer in the Voineasa area.
