Where to go when you visit Lebanon - Site 4: Skiing

Okay, yes there is snow in Lebanon and is NOT a desert and yes Lebanon has 6 Ski resorts. Usually we get snow around Christmas time and it lasts till March or April depending on how many storms we got and in what interval.

The 6 Resorts are: Faraya Mzaar Kfardebian | The Cedars | Faqra Club | Zaarour | Laqlouq | Qanat Bakish

What is great about it, is that you can reach a couple of Ski resorts (such as Faraya, Faqra, Laqlouq) in an hour or so from Beirut, you can rent a small apartment (chalet) and spend a weekend there, and when it's night you can either drive back to downtown Beirut, or Jounieh or Jbeil or Batroun to dine in less than an hour, or just stay indoors, enjoy the view and sit beside the fireplace. But of course, if you're here for the first time, it's a 2 in 1 if you go to the Cedars, around a 2.5 hour road trip, but also explore one of the most beautiful natural spots in Lebanon.

In addition to skiing, there is many more snow related activities that can be done, such as snow shoeing, snowmobile, snowboarding, and having ice cold red wine!
