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


Theodoros from Greece writes:

Mount Parnassos is the oldest ski resort in Greece. It consists of two different areas: Kelaria and Fterolaka, joined together by a fairly slow lift. Recently Kelaria has been upgraded by a new combi lift (8-seat cabin and 6seat chairs) all the way from 1750m (base) to 2250 (top), with a middle station at 1950. Next year is scheduled another major upgrade to Fterolaka. There is also a third phase with the installation of snow cannons.
Now there are 17 lifts in the area, serving mostly blue runs and 5 red runs (2 in Fterolaka, the rest in Kelaria). Unfortunately, until now, there hasn't been enough snow, so all the red runs are yet closed and many of the open tracks are fairly rocky.
For advanced skiers there are only these 5 red runs (that are also fairly short in length), no black runs. The best is No6 (Inioxos) in Fterolaka.
