Skiing in Greece

Skiing in Greece
Winter in Greece

Not only sandy beaches and beautiful promenades attract tourists to Greece. There are also ski resorts, popular with skiers of different ages. About 15 ski centers offer the opportunity to feel like a real skier.
The main skiing center in Greece is Parnassus Mountain, which height is 2.500m above sea level. Parnassus attracts thousands of tourists every year. Since the slopes of the mountain are not very steep, there are many amateurs among holidaymakers. Slopes on Parnassus are pretty short and not very difficult, so it does not require professional skills. The resort has many ski schools that offer a variety of courses. And right on the slope is located the restaurant, which can delight tourist with gourmet delicacies of different national cuisines. Another well-known ski area is located near the town of Arachova, which is the oldest resort in Greece. There are three tracks that offer excellent conditions for skiing.

The second highest mountain in Greece is Mount Olympus. It is also a very popular destination for winter recreation. This place is preferred by snowboarders. They like to perfect technique here and enjoy skating on the deep snow-covered desert slopes. The Olympus also has tracks suitable for skiing. Another advantage is the lack of queues at the lifts and gondolas, which also makes the rest at the resort very pleasant. Again, there are ski schools that offer training courses for skiers of all ages. Besides, there are often held small tournaments, participation in which is open to all comers.

The Greeks themselves are very fond of skiing and during the holidays often go to the Mount Parnassus and the Olympus. Breathtaking views of the sea turn the usual downhill into an unforgettable event. And if you try to ski on these peaks in August or September, you can even get a tan in the sun. For many tourists it makes such a holiday very pleasant.
