Mount Parnassos Ski Resort Guide

- Terrain Parks:1
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.

You know what? Not bad; I see an improvement. The new lift at Vakkos that opened 2014/15 changes things a lot. The mountain may still be small and easy, but at least you have some skiing 2 hours away from Athens and is a good place to practice your skills.
The resort, as a whole, seems better organized this year with the electronic ski passes, ability to charge them online, not to mention the fact that the parking is better organized.
Another big plus, it seems the billionaire prices in the ski resort cafeteria have become much more reasonable so you can actually have a snack there.
I went in early April and got the 20% off as only about half of the pistes were working. Keep it up!
