Mount Parnassos is the closest ski resort to Athens requiring only a 2 hour drive to reach the resort from the capital. The infrastructure is above average compared with ski resorts in Greece but Mount Parnassos is significantly inferior compared with other European resorts. Skiing has become extremely fashionable in Greece during the past few years. The short ski period (normally from January to mid April) and its proximity to Athens (a city of 5 million) result in attracting large crowds during weekends and bank holidays. Mount Parnassos is overstretched during those days and even the incredibly expensive (bearing in mind the limited number of slopes and the overall quality of the resort) day-pass of 25 Euros is not enough to turn the crowds away. Overall though, Mount Parnassos is a nice surprise for anyone who thinks that holidays in Greece means sun, sea and extreme heat.

Resorts close to Mount Parnassos include: Mt Parnassos-Fterolaka (1 km), Mt Parnassos-Kelaria (3 km), Helmos (73 km), Karpenisi (80 km), Pilion (99 km),

Visitor Reviews of Mount Parnassos


Kostis from Greece writes:

Parnassos resort can be seen as a broader reflection of the position of infrastructure in the Greek landscape. It entails some incredibly charming elements (sun, views, food, villages, archaeological sites, general sensorial feeling) along with various less-compelling ones, such as overcrowding, inflexibility of the staff as regards the prices (in days where the resort is half-closed), old lifts, high prices at the canteens, relatively high ticket-price and so on. It still represents the best option for those dwelling in Athens and there has been some signs of improvement (e.g. ticket discounts in the 2012-2013 season). Keep in mind that, essentially, we are dealing with one piste overall (Iraklis) which can become slightly tedious for those returning throughout the years.
