Cyprus is a wonderful island of contrasts. Where else could you ski in the morning and then be sunning yourself by the pool or on the beach in the afternoon? The snows on Mount Olympus are a fabulous way of spending a winter morning in the Ski Cyprus arena.
The Troodos mountains spring to life not only in the middle of the hot summer as a cool refuge and holiday resort, but also in winter, as this is the skiing centre for Cyprus. Yes it is true, swim in the morning and ski in the afternoon , or vice versa of course.
Here you can take advantage of the pleasures of winter sports under the beautiful blue Mediterranean sky. Mount Olympus has several ski slopes and is fun for skiers and players in the snow of all levels and age.
