Skiing on Mount Velouchi (Timfristos), Evrytania, Central Greece

Lying at an altitude of 1,840 meters on Mount Timfristos, in an area known as Diavolotopos or Devil's Place, the ski centre of Karpenissi (or Velouchi) actually offers heavenly skiing over an extended winter season, with excellent quality of snow. This is one of the most important ski resorts in the country with facilities having been improved and renovated in recent years. Keep in mind that Evrytania is known as the 'Switzerland of Greece'.


There are 11 ski runs or slopes over eight kilometres, ranging between 1,750 and 2,100 meters in altitude. Two of these ski runs are considered advanced, six intermediate, and three very easy. Four chair lifts and six ski lifts are capable of carrying over 5000 persons per hour. The season starts from the middle of December until the end of March. In addition, since this is not the closest resort to Athens or Thessaloniki, it doesn't get as crowded and remains outstanding in its serenity. Ski shops for equipment and ski courses are also available. There's a chalet with a bar and even outdoor bars, and weather during the day can remain balmy even in snowy weather. This is Greece, after all.

This company offers rafting, canyoning, canoeing, kayaing, skiing, trekking and paintball among other activities, all in Karpenissi, the heart of the Greek mountains. River guide instructor, gorge guide and other experts available.
