Its Snowing! Sun's Shining! People are Smiling

Faraya Mzaar just declared that the ski slopes will open next Saturday 23rd January according to www.skileb.com

After a long awaited snow in Lebanon, the Mzaar ski slopes will finally open the ski lifts next Saturday, January 23rd, one month later than normally expected. Most ski lifts in Wardeh domain and some in Jonction will be operational, while the remaining get prepared.

The snow is there, but as there is another storm coming this weekend, it's postponed till next weekend.

And yes, usually its snows by the end of December and slopes open then, this is unconventional from what we used to have in Lebanon. Faraya Mzaar is one of the two most popular ski resorts in Lebanon, in addition to the Cedars. The cedars are higher, and have had snow since a while now.

So for all ski lovers out there, the winter season is finally here! Now! And not like many billboards on the streets said since a month now, some even mentioned that prices are dropping as temperature is dropping. My reaction: "Temperature is still in its 20s! Does this mean there's no sale?"
