Pelion Ski Resort

Where? Just a few kilometres from the famous tsipouradika (tsipouro taverna) of Volos, the mythic mountain of the Centaurs awaits visitors, where you will be able to get a taste of the unique experience of Alpine skiing while you enjoy the sea view.

How? Follow the road from Volos to Portaria village. Go through Portaria and ascend for about 5 km until you reach Chania. Continue for 2 more km up to Agriolefkes where the Resort is situated.

Why? The view from the ski resort is breathtaking! From one side you can see the Pagasetic Gulf and from the other side the Aegean Sea, the Thermaikos Gulf, Chalkidiki and, deep into the horizon, Mt. Athos! The resort has 5 ski slopes of 15 km length: 4 downhill pistes and 1 endurance slope of 5km length (Lang-Lauf) that goes through a marvellous forest path.

Tip: The Resort offers 3 parking lots, café, restaurant, ski equipment store, first aid clinic, alpine ski and snowboard school (offering tutoring for children) and chalets that offer accommodation in nature!
