Mount hermon is a beautiful area, I visited there on a Saturday in the winter, when there were lots of skiers around & it was SO Busy. The whole surrounding area was covered in snow...........Lovely.!

A friend & I hitched up there from Ayelet Hashahar (in between Rosh Pinna & Qyriat Shermona). We even had a lift in a Police van when we were returning home!
It was such a beautiful sunny day & I have such wonderful memories of it for one reason & another. Once we got to the ski resort we took the ski lift up to the very top & the views are amazing over Israel, Lebanon & Syria.

The Snow season here is normally from late December to early April. There are 4 runs here ideal for the average to good skier, the longest of which is nearly 3 km long. It is possible to hire everything you need for a days skiing, once you get here, but do get here early especially at weekends for the better equipment.
