Extreme skiing in Lebanon

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I found this link on the skiclub.co.uk forum. With thanks to David Goldsmith who posted it.


For all adrenaline junkies out there, read this quote from the article:

"We gather our remaining energy to make the final summit push. There, we faced a choice between a shorter route, crossing a landmine field, and a longer one going around it. Confident of the three meters thick snow cover, we crossed the field, adding some thrill to our ascent of the Great Hermon."

I'd consider any skiing in Lebanon to be "extreme".

"Those Americans and Europeans don't know 'extreme skiing.' It ain't extreme unless you are taking incoming arty or are in a firefight." Overheard comment from one Near Easterner to another.

Skiing over a landmine field? Hey, no need to go oversees, go XC skiing on the upper peninsula!
