Parnassus Ski Resort, trails, lifts

Our resort has 19 ski runs, 7 ski routes, 2 main base station communication corridors, 8 connecting trails and 3 mini beginner runs with baby lifts, total length 36km. Summit elevation at 2260m, base elevation at 1640m and length of runs from 300m to 4km, with all degrees of difficulty for all skill levels. For adventure and fun lovers there are many black, back country runs with deep snow and lots of adrenaline as well as 2 Fun parks in Kellaria and Fterolaka. Four of our runs, Νο6 Iniochos, Νο8 Iraklis, Νο9 Odysseas & Νο2 Vacchos, are certified by the International Ski Federation (F.I.S Homologation) for international ski competitions.

Parnassos 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. A new store for ski and snowboard equipment maintenance has started its operation in Kelaria 1750, with the most high-tech equipment.
