Posted On: 23 Jan 2020


The economic crisis bites Lebanon’s ski slopes after weeks of snowfall. There is no sign of the traffic that would typically jam the road of Lebanon ski resort.

Nicole Wakim Freiha, marketing and development manager of Mzaar ski resort said that the weather is great and the snow as well and invites everyone to come by slashing prices 30% in a bid to entice skiers.  Several of the slopes have remained closed since the first heavy snow in December, reflecting the slowdown in demand. A tour guide Bassam Dalle said that this year it is looking less crowded, this year when we came on the road, traffic was less.
