When you picture Cyprus in your mind, you probably envisage the golden sand beaches, the crystal-clear waters and long sunny days spent relaxing by the pool or strolling around the marina. But Cyprus has so much more to offer, and from December through to February, the Troodos Mountains become a popular ski resort!
All the facilities you’d expect from a ski resort
You’ll find everything here that all the best ski resorts boast. There are four ski lifts and eight alpine ski runs. There’s a ski school to teach beginners how to ski and pass on extra skills to the more experienced. The resort is also home to a restaurant and cafes, to relax and unwind after a day on the slopes and if you’d like to make a holiday of it, you can book into one of the two hotels that are located right on the edge of the resort.
Fun for all the family
With slopes of differing skill levels and expert tuition on hand, a trip to the Troodos Mountains in ski season is a must for families looking for some thrilling winter fun. Head out on January 17th and you’ll get to experience World Snow Day which brings with it some benefits such as a free introduction to skiing for children and a snow sculpting competition.
A festive wonderland
Around Christmas time, the snow-capped Troodos Mountains feel so magical. There’s something wonderful about spending an evening snuggled up around an open fire in one of the hotels, watching the snowfall outside the window. You’ll find some warming traditional dishes being served up that will heat up your body and your soul along with it.
