Ski centers are spread in the mountainous regions of the two governorates Lebanon mountain And the north, such as Kfardebian and Bcharre.

Due to the absence of official support, the winter tourism sector has become Lebanon It faces the risk of collapse, according to those in charge of it, especially in the event that it is unable to secure operational costs.

The crisis in this sector worsened with the reluctance of many Lebanese to immerse themselves, after this sport became beyond their capabilities.

For example, due to the high operating expenses of ski centers, ticket prices increased between 12 and 50 dollars, in addition to ski supplies, which range between 10 and 30 dollars, and coaches’ fees, which range between 15-180 dollars.

The owners of these centers have become dependent on tourists and expatriates who pay in hard currency, but their arrival to Lebanon is linked to political stability, while Iraqis and Egyptians are among those who travel to Lebanon for this sport.

Followers point out that the ski centers will find themselves facing the challenge of steadfastness, despite the high prices they charge in dollars. The able Lebanese are outside the country, and the few days they spend in Lebanon during the holidays are not enough to save the sector.

Wassim Samir Muhanna, mayor of the town of Kfardebian (a ski site in Mount Lebanon), told Sky News Arabia: Snow is Lebanon White PetroleumIt introduces the dollar into the Lebanese market.”

Muhanna continued, “Hundreds of Lebanese families benefit from this tourism sector, including workers, trainers, and maintenance workers, because the time when snow falls between the two holidays is a season in itself in Lebanon, where universities and schools are vacationing, and the majority of expatriates return to participate in the holidays with their families.”

Muhanna added, “Lebanon is currently witnessing a good turnout for the Iraqi and Egyptian brothers, who began to flock to it, starting last Sunday.”

Regarding the high prices and costs of renting ski equipment in Lebanon, he said, “Skiing in Lebanon depends on a certain class of society, and the ski season in Lebanon is short, unlike the swimming season.”

He continued, “The ski centers are concentrated in the town of Kfardebian in Mount Lebanon and others in the Cedars region in northern Lebanon, and these are the least financially costly because of their geographical remoteness, and access to them remains expensive due to the high price of gasoline in Lebanon.”

Muhanna explained that “the location of the town of Kfardebian, which is only 40 km away from the capital Beirut and the city of Tripoli, as well as from the Bekaa Governorate, contributes to more demand, and the ski season does not exceed three months, while ski center operators wait throughout the year to benefit from the relatively short season.”
