First Snow Falls on Northern Greece’s Ski Resorts

KAIMAKTSALAN – The first snow of the year has covered the landscape of northern Greece’s ski resorts as a result of the temporary worsening of the weather conditions.

This is the first snow to fall on the slopes and may not be enough for skiers, however it gives fans of winter sports a reason to smile and be optimistic that the ski season will eventually start.

The first snow fell on Tuesday at Kaimaktsalan, Seli, 3-5 Pigadia, Vassilitsa, Falakro, Lailias and Metsovo at altititudes over 1,500m. The very high temperatures for the season kept skiers and snowboarders away from the pistes but if the current weather conditions hold and snow coverage improves, then some ski resorts will open immediately.


THESSALONIKI. Expanding its reach for tourists to bring in more cruise ships, Greece is looking to the Posidonia Sea Tourism Forum (PSTF) in the country's second-largest port, Thessaloniki, to kick off the season in spring.
