Description

Lebanon is a land of history. History, with a big H, of the genesis of the Bible, of our history.

And on this land it is possible to ski! An atypical ski since it takes place on the mountain range separating the desert plain of the Bekaa from the western greener valleys. A thread between sand and Mediterranean Sea.

Going to discover Lebanon skis touring, means immersing in culture, in history, discover welcoming people, and enjoy life as the Lebanese do so well! It is feeling, tasting, smelling the perfumes, tastes and delicacy of Lebanese wealth!

It also means discover the two ski resorts of the country, to realize that there it also exists! And hike on the summits with mysterious and haunting names. It is finally enjoying beautiful descents, because this is also what we like to share!

Highlights of this trip:

  • The route from north to south will make you see a large part of Lebanon
  • The descent of famous routes in ski touring
  • The discovery of a rich culture and a generous people
  • Meet the History that made our history, from sight!
