The challenge for us has always been, and will continue to be, trying to convert visitors to the website to skiers in Lebanon. Our team is, as you may suspect, made up of skiers, mountain lovers and snowboarders and we are all driven by our passion for these activities. Most people have heard that Lebanon represents the only country in the world in which it is possible to go skiing on snow in the mornings and then swim in the beautiful Mediterranean in the afternoon. The mountain range here is quite unique in that it rises above a particularly narrow coast. Even the resorts at the highest points are only a short distance away from the coast, and the views from up high can be truly spectacular on a clear day. It became widely popular to go skiing in Lebanon during the 1930's but it wasn't until the fifties, when ski lifts became available, that it really took off. Over the past fifty years or so a few resorts have come into being in places including Faraya Ouyoune El-Simane, Laqlouq and Zaarour, so visitors to the country have plenty of choice in terms of where to enjoy their skiing vacation.
Snowboarding is often cited as being one of the fastest growing sports in the world, and if you have ever given it a try then you will understand why. It is predominantly popular with the younger generation, and in Lebanon we have born witness to this trend. One of the reasons for its success is that it is very easy to learn and people of all abilities can, in a short period of time, discover the joys of soaring down the mountains. In Lebanon especially it has become popular as the mountains here are well adapted for snowboarding. Anyone in need of a luxury skiing holiday will find just that in Lebanon, and once you travel to one of the country's six ski resorts you will be glad you made the effort to visit. From the groomed slopes to the miles of cross-country skiing there is plenty for you to discover in terms of skiing, plus the world class infrastructure and facilities will leave you with a very good impression. There is something for everyone, so whether you are looking to enjoy some unique nature, or want somewhere suitable for a family, you will be able to find it.
