Across a large part of the Mainalo mountain range, there is the ski centre of Ostrakina, at an altitude of 1600 meters. It has eight slopes, some of which are considered challenging to negotiate. Three sliding one-seat lifts and one baby lift take skiers to the slopes. Onsite there is a snowboard park with a jump slope and a skiing/snowboarding school. There is also a store to rent ski equipment. This is the closest ski resort to Athens, with daily bus transfers from the capital in winter. Note that the European Path E4 passes from Ostrakina too. The resort is only 29 kilometres away from Tripoli and very close to the village of Kardaras.
