showed up early in some regions of Lebanon! Even though resorts did not open yet, you can start planning a weekend getaway to have some fun in the snow! Lebanon has six ski resorts where you can also snowboard, snowshoe, and ride ATVs. Some people like to ride their bikes! If you are not into these activities, you can always ride on a sled and build a snowman!

A region where the cedar trees proudly stand, The Cedars is where you’ll enjoy observing the majestic landscape. The snow season usually begins early and ends in April. This region is also filled with other fun activities such as visiting the museum of the renowned Lebanese poet Gibran Khalil Gibran and the Quadisha Valley.

However, it gets so crowded during the weekends that you might want to hit the road soon. The reason why so many people like to go to Mzaar in winter is that it’s a vibrant city that keeps you entertained. It is also filled with restaurants. Visitors usually like to eat saj and drink tea after skiing.
