Skiing in Greece

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

When we go from Greece, for ski vacation in the Alpes the people ask me if we have ski-resorts in Greece.
Here is a video in YouTube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=we9-zDPPiUI with 3 of 14 ski-resorts in Greece.
Other infos you can find here www.snowreport.gr

Dolomites,

 

Thanks for your post.


I realize that this is a very old thread (8years), but it seems an appropriate place to ask instead of starting a new thread. ( I searched using the terms skiing greece and this post was among the top 10 results)

 

Does anyone have any first (or second :D ) hand experience with skiing in Greece?

 

The prices that I have seen at two mountain areas (Kalavryta and Parnassou) seem very reasonable (25 and 30 Euros respectively).

While these mountains are not large compared to other ski areas, they have decent base elevation and vertical.  Their bases are about 1600m (5250ft) and have peaks at about 2200m (7200ft)

 

These two ski areas appear to be among the larger ski areas in Greece.

 

I ask since I think it would be nice to ski there and I have people that I could visit while in Greece.

 

One area of concern would be traveling with my ski boots and skis, but I can check other threads to see how people manage traveling with their gear.


Edit:

Just adding some info about myself (in case it has an effect on your opinions and/or recommendations).

 

Height:  180cm (71")

Weight: 95kg (210lbs)

Skis:  178cm Atomic Smoke

 

I am comfortable skiing intermediate piste (trails) at Belleayre and Blue Mt..  I have not skied any ♦ or ♦♦ piste (trails).

I would consider myself about a level 5/6 in skiing ability.

I know that Thanos, who is the president and chief chemist of Dominator Wax very much enjoys skiing in Greece. He told me of the advantage of skiing in the morning and sitting on the beach at the end of the day. I never got into specifics with him on the particular areas, but he told me it was his second favorite place to ski with Japan number 1.  Dominator Tom posts here and works with him and may be able to get you some information.

Thanks Vsirin,

 

I would like to read their thoughts regarding skiing in Greece.

 

It has been many years since my last visit to Greece, but that was in early fall instead of winter.  I think that Greece is one of the few places (on Earth) that it is feasible for morning skiing followed by ending the day sitting along the beach.  Definitely can not do that in Colorado or Switzerland.
