Did you manage to get up to Cedars as well?
Gladd that you like it , hope that you'll share it . i haven't visited the cedars as its like 2 and a half hours far and the slopes are a bit dangerous, but i will be :)

I would love to only have to drive 2.5 hours to the snow.
Ho wouldn't on cool Europian mountain roads , but I'm not in Europe.... Like the 2.5 hours with out traffic, say you're going in the morning so you won't face traffic, but on the way back you'll probably get stuck in 1 to 1.5 extra hours of traffic (on a good day ;x ) so spending up to 6 hours on the road for cedars isn't worth it , although the snow is better (not by much ) but the piste is small .
What I would recommend for skiing here is going to faraya and renting a snowmobile , for the day , you'll get so many km of powder snow pistes !! (I'll do that when I find a good skiing partner )

I don't know if my skiing technique is noticeable , but if it is , I would like to hear some comments , saying bad things won't hurt , instead I'll learn !! So please feel free leave comments .

In joke on the forums. Don't worry about it. Something to do with a travel agent who spams. Stick around and you're sure to see the joke repeated. If you're lucky (or not) he might make a return eventually.

BTW, skiing better than the music.

;)
Thanks for clearing this out

Are you Lebanese australian? What gets you over there?
Honestly, I'm not an Ausie , and the snow is what got me over here !! I think that this is the best forum for ski talk , as I've tried some others , the people are lovely and helpfull !!

That's great.

Keep us up to date. There is nothing quite like hearing about exotic skiing localities and the Middle east tops it.

Had no idea you could ski in Lebanon. Good to see you having a crack.
Makes me wonder how many countries of the 197 or so? in the world have ski resorts and has anyone skied in each country? Hard to imagine anyone has. That would be some quest!

There are certainly some interesting ones

South Africa, Cyprus, hawaii, Bolivia

Hell even Papua new guinea gets graupel at the peak of its highest mountain

What I've heard about cyprus , that the slopes suck and off piste is limited , its like only for tourists , everything is for touristsROFL

FAryara is very close to the Syrian border, did you notice military activity or concerned about it?

It is not , there's like the bekaa between faraya and syria and even Baalbek (you'll find it close on maps ) is safe to go to , as we got real good security on the borders .

Had no idea you could ski in Lebanon.

Australians and New Zealanders have been flocking to Lebanon to ski for almost 75 years:
