Faraya

(0 votes, average 0 out of 5)
altThe village of Faraya is synonymous with skiing in Lebanon. The actual slopes are in nearby Ouyoun Al-Siman in the Kfardebian area of Mount Lebanon.  During the winter months from Dec to April, Faraya is most sought after by skiers from all over the gulf and elsewhere for downhill, cross country and night skiing. Faraya boasts 18 ski lifts, 12 of them being chair lifts and 10 snow grooming machines that keep the pistes in first class conditions.
The ski resort has an elevation of 1,891 meters with the highest run starting at 2,463 meters.  The resort of Faraya-Mzaar makes possible skiing for all levels and offers wide and gentle slopes for beginners. For intermediates and advanced skiers, the higher slopes provide immense challenge and fun. Visitors atop the slopes get stunning views of the Mediterranean, and on a clear day, of the Bekaa valley and the city of Beirut sprawled below. It is easy to see why Lebanon has been nicknamed the ‘Switzerland of the Middle East’.

Location: around 46 kms (29miles) north east of Beirut
