Kalavrita ski resort

The Kalavrita ski resort is considered the second largest in Greece, located on Mount Chelmos (or Helmos) among fir trees and a rocky alpine landscape, hovering between 1,700 meters and 2,340 meters. It is also one of the most organized ski centres in the country with 12 ski runs spread over 20 kilometres, along with two chair lifts and five ski lifts. For advanced skiers, the Styga runs are considered quite challenging and particularly attractive.

Overall, there are two difficult runs, two intermediate ones, six easy ones and two very easy ones. Cross-country skiing is also available. Kalavrita operates as a winter ski resort between mid December to mid April. It is open during the rest of the year for other activities. Facilities include free parking, restaurant, cafeteria, ski-rental shop, ski school, a snowboard park and first aid station. The resort is just 14 kilometres away from the main town of Kalavrita.

Another activity worth considering is going on the hiking trails with snowshoes, which gives you a whole different hiking perspective in relatively balmy weather. Visits to the recently build Aristarchos telescope and an overnight stay at the mountain shelter can also be interesting.
