Ski Cyprus

Cyprus is home to the most southerly ski lifts in Europe located in the Mediteranean island nation’s Troodos mountains.

There’s been skiing here since the 1930s with the first lifts installed in 1960 and the whole ski operation closely linked to the British military presence on the islands.

Slopes are named after Greek Gods like Aphrodite and Hermes. The season usually lasts from January to March and accommodation is available in small villages beneath the ski area although it is only about an hour’s drive up from the coastal city of Larnaca, making a ski-and-beach holiday a realistic prospect.

The average winter temperature at the coast is a tad over 17C, but that didn’t stop residents of Larnaca.

The snow fall is difficult to predict but usually lasts from January to March and there are just a few basic slopes and lifts but snow making guns cover the slopes.

Membership of the Cyprus Ski Federation is required in order to gain access to the lifts, but this is easily available to visitors for a small additional premium on top of the ski lift ticket price.
