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.

Dimitris from Greece writes:
34 winters on my back. Been skiing this mountain since i was 5. Overpriced, usually crowded, and always the problematic lift of Sahara. Ok, i am used to all that but this year's case is unique. Like it or not, the season in Greece lasts for 2 months. For decent skiing, that is, and a bit of off-piste. On the 1st of January, with fresh snow and clear skies, the parkings were not open! We left our car 1,6 km away (from the resort) because of the traffic jam, as there was no space to park your vehicle. Yesterday (Sunday), with relatively bad conditions though, the resort was closed as they were "preparing" themselves for the following days. They even posted a ridiculous announcement, explaining how unprecedented the amount of snow was and the conditions were this year.. blah, blah, blah. It's a seasonal (60 days) job, for Christ's sake! If you are not prepared, or fully staffed this is your problem. It's not Mount Everest but a 2200m altitude (peak).
So, since all of us customers are prepared to pay you double than the other resorts, do yourselves a favour (if you respect us customers) and be prepared on time, please.
