The Ski Centre on Parnassos is situated at an altitude of about 1.600-2.300m
and it is the biggest and best-organised ski-centre in our country.
The construction works at the Ski-Centre on Parnassos started in 1975 and
were completed in 1976 just when facilities in Fterolaca started operating.
It was in 1981 that construction works in Kellaria were completed whereas Hermes,
the connection lift between Fterolaca and Kellaria was inaugurated in 1987-1988.
So far Parnassos has
been Number one preference by the Athenians (since it is actually 180 kms far)
as well as for other skiers and snowboarders who warm its tracks on weekdays
but particularly during the weekend.
No wonder since the Centre has twenty tracks of 14 km total length. At the
same time its infrastructure is such which facilitates quick service for a great
number of visitors/skiers.
A further advantage of the Centre is the daily operation of all facilities
with lower price ticket.
This is due to the need for developing the adjoining Communities and Municipalities
and that's the reason why accomodation (Hotels) is not available at the area.
Its visitors can find an accomodation at the nearest villages or Municipalities
which are about 20kms far from the Centre tracks.
