Who would have thought that Greece is such a skier's paradise! Yet with over a dozen bona fide ski resorts and over 130 ski runs in total, you'll be at a loss to choose between them all. There are busy resorts that are the place to be seen, or remote ones for more romantic getaways. Ski shelters and traditional villages abound, giving you a true sense of life in the wintry Greek countryside as well.
Warm up to some liqueur or ouzo while you sample the local meats and cheeses, then go out and conquer the slopes in their mild temperatures. In many ways, due to its mild climate and traditional way of life, Greece is a much more authentic and adventurous place to ski in than Central Europe and North America could ever be – no offense intended. You'll find steep slopes and cross country options, as well as snowboarding and snowshoeing activities that add a bit of variety to winter sports. Enjoy!
