Just like every year, ski and winter sports enthusiasts in Lebanon attentively wait for snowstorms. This year, the ‘Norma‘ and ‘Tracy’ storms have generously blessed our Lebanese mountains with the beautiful white and magical snow.
Lebanon’s ski resorts are accessible on a day trip with the nearest ski resorts less than an hour’s drive from the capital, Beirut. The sociable Lebanese ensure that the après-ski scene is as memorable as the skiing.
Weekends on the snow is a great plan to make whether you’re a group of friends, family or even as a couple. Ski resorts in different areas such as Faraya, The Cedars, Zaarour, or Laklouk are the place to stay while you rest from all the fun in the sun.
Get informed about the state of the roads to your destination. Some roads could be closed due to ice formation.
Get sunscreen and sunglasses.
Don’t risk skiing if you find yourself not able to, it’s a dangerous sport after all!
Wear thick clothes to stay warm.
