As it is one of the highest ski centers in Greece, you get an astonishing view of the area and the lake and you will probably find enough snow for skiing. It is equipped with snow cannons, so as to keep the ski runs open....More

The highest ski resort in Greece. If you are lucky and it's no cloudy or windy you will enjoy it! You can also visit Agios Athanasios old village. That's a small, traditional old village will stone houses and beautiful restaurants!

We stayed there with a view to going skiing, but the resort was shut. The hotel is situated in a good spot, but you will obviously need a car. The food was great and the rooms were awesome. Front and rear rooms are both fine,...More

Greece is popular mainly for the beautiful Islands! So, don't expect much in our mountains regarding winter snow sports. However, it is nice especially during high season visiting this mountain and enjoy low budget skiing.
