Where to go in Winter
6 years ago
Lebanon is not the most obvious choice for a skiing destination, but the Mediterranean country is a magnet for winter sports enthusiasts. The ski centres of Faraya Mzaar and Cedars are the best known of six Alpine-style resorts, which get around three months of reliable snow each winter. As an added bonus, on fine days you can ski in the morning, bathe in the Mediterranean in the afternoon and party through the night in up-and-coming Beirut.
