Greece’s popular ski resort at Agriolefkes on the beautiful Pelion mountain, which offers a wonderful view of the Aegean Sea against the backdrop of the snow-covered aspens has opened up for 2022- welcoming skiers (both professional and amateur) to make the most of the heavy snowfall that’s hit the area over the last few days.
Mount Pelion reaches an altitude of 1500 metres and boasts wonderful views of the Aegean Sea on one side and the Pagasitikos gulf on the other, making it a favourite winter getaway for Greeks from all over the country.
The centre has seven slopes (with different levels of difficulty) and five lifts. All of the centre’s ski slopes will be open to the public.
Apart from the slopes, there is also a ski school here for beginners, and other ski options including a descent down an uneven slope, snowboarding or mountain artillery ski, which takes place on the eastern road and ends up on the beach of Agios Ioannis.
And apart from skiing, you can enjoy the cobblestoned squares and local taverns nearby that serve comforting winter dishes. The area also offers an array of other activities such as horseback riding, hiking, adventure trekking, cycling and more.
The ski lifts will be in full operation from 9 am until 4 pm, and the organisers announced all those visiting the premises of the ski resort should wear protective masks both in open and closed areas.
Agriolefkes is 2kms away from the village of Chania and there is a daily bus service from Volos.
