Ski holidays in Lebanon
Lebanon is located in the Middle East on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. The country is surrounded by Israel and Syria. Because of its location in the warm climate of the Middle East people do not always immediately realize it is possible to see Lebanon as a winter sports destination. The region north of Beirut in particular has many huge mountains however, which has a lot of snowfall in winter. Three well-known ski resorts in Lebanon are: Mzaar, Laqlouq and Cedars. In these resorts, facilities are modern and people also speak French and to lesser extent English. Of the three ski resorts Mzaar (Formerly known as Faraya Mzaar) is by far the biggest and most attractive ski resort. The ski season in Lebanon is mostly from December to March just like in Europe and North America.
