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.
