Parnassus Ski Center

Parnassus is one of the most beautiful mountains in Greece, full of Greek firs with ambulant vegetation and rare natural beauty that charms visitors all year long. On this mountain at an elevation of 1,600-2,250m in the areas of Kelaria and Fterolakka, Parnassus Ski Center operates from December until the beginning of May, which is the biggest and the best organised ski center of our country.

Its construction began in 1975 and was completed in 1976, when the facilities in Fterolakka started to operate. In 1981 constructions in Kelaria facilities were also completed and in 1987-1988 “Ermis” started to operate, a connecting lift between Fterolakka and Kelaria. In 1993, the first detachable 4-seater aerial lift in Greece was added in Kelaria 1950, called “Iraklis”.

Our Ski Center has 19 ski runs, 7 ski routes, 10 trails and three mini beginner runs, total length 36km. The length of runs starts from 50m to 4km for beginners, average and good skiers.

For adventure lovers, there are 12 black country runs with really deep snow and lots of adrenaline. The Center features high safety facilities and equipment and is well operated.

Parnassus Ski Center is very popular for skiers, as it is located near Athens, Lamia and Patra and its facilities can serve a great number of visitors and skiers. There are two cafes-chalets and a restaurant in the Center, ski and snowboard schools, special stores for ski and snowboard equipment rental and a playground for our younger visitors. This year, a new store for ski and snowboard equipment maintenance has started its operation in Kelaria 1750, with the most high-tech equipment.

Parnassus Ski Center provides medical cover for all skiers and visitors.
