The impressive Troodos mountain range with its idyllic forests stretches across most of the western side of Cyprus offering a cool sanctuary in the summer and the opportunity for sports in the winter. At the top of the Troodos Mountains one can also find the only Skiing Center in Cyprus. Here, one can take advantage of the pleasures of Winter Sports under the beautiful Mediterranean blue sky.
Skiing can be enjoyed on the slopes of Mount Olympus (1951 metres a.s.l.), usually from the beginning of January until the end of March. Mount Olympus is only 2 km, from Troodos mountain resort, 12 km from Platres mountain resort, and about an hour’s drive from the seaside town of Limassol and the Capital, Nicosia.
An International F.I.S. Skiing Competition is organized every year by the Cyprus Ski Federation and takes place at the ZEUS Slalom Homologated Piste.
The Cyprus Ski Club operates four ski lifts at the Troodos ski centre:
A Chairlift on the FIS homologated slope of Zeus (380 Meters)
A 262m T-bar type ski lift on the Hera slope
A 125m T-bar ski-lift on the Sun Valley area leading to the Aphrodite slope.
A 140m T-bar ski lift on Sun Valley leading to the Hermes slope.
The ski lifts operate from 09.00. All runs are suitable for beginners, intermediate and advanced skiers.
We inform you that for the ski season 2022-2023 the Ski Shop will not operate, as the construction of the new ski building will be carried out.
Thank you for your understanding and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. This project, though, is of great importance to all ski friends as it will create the conditions for a better visitor experience, as well as a more decent environment.
