Operation period

The ski resort is open from December, every day from Thursday to Sunday and on holidays. The ticket office is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Useful notes

It is the northest ski center in Greece with the longest skiing period, established by the Drama Alpine Club.

The installation and operation of the four-seat aerial detachable chair (1500 m long) is an infrastructure project of major importance for tourism. This chair is even larger than that of Parnassos Ski Center, the first one in Greece.

Based on the present infrastructure, has been ensured as far as possible the continuous operation of the ski center. Even in cases of light snowfall, the ski center remains open and operative, offering to the visitors the option of high altitudes, where the snow doesn’t’ melt.

It has the longest possible period of snow, due not only to the geographical position of it but also to the high altitude (Start base at 1720 m., slopes ranging from 1615 m to 2230 m).

In recent years organized night skiing, every Saturday night with free entry for all skiers.
