Winter is approaching and with the first snowfall, Greece’s ski resorts will be filled with people who want to ski and snowboard. However, you do not have to be interested for skiing or snowboarding to visit a winter destination. Below are 5 tips to enjoy your visit in a ski resort!
Wear proper clothes
The problem in many cases at a ski resort is not so much the cold, but the water! When pressed, snow turns into water, and even if we choose to play snowball with friends or family, then we increase the chances of getting wet without wearing the right clothes!
So initially, a waterproof and warm jacket is more than necessary. It will keep us warm and significantly protect us from getting snow inside. Also, a waterproof lined trousers, thick skirts and hiking boots make the outfit suitable for our outing. Jeans and legging pants as well as sneakers are certainly easier to find in our wardrobe, but they will soon prove to be a bit of a hit and can ruin our trip.
Life on the mountain is not easy. Harsh weather and cold can make it difficult for you to visit a ski resort and even ruin your trip. So, if you are not interested in ski lessons, it is important to have a program in place. You can do some research on the place you plan to visit and add things that will make you fully enjoy the tour. A visit to a nearby attraction, a good restaurant for food, a lake that you can use to take some great photos are just some of the things you can add to your schedule. Certainly this cannot be done literally, but at least it gives room for alternatives and the ability to adapt to mountain conditions.
Do something different
What about spa therapy in the mountains? Maybe a swim in the pool overlooking the snow? Or even a cooking class? Certainly all of the above sound different and require a higher budget, but they are an alternative form of entertainment! Most ski resorts have the above services and it’s up to you to sign up before your visit since most times … it’s sold out!
A ski resort doesn’t just mean skiing and snowboarding. The ski resorts of Greece are fully up-to-date and feature a variety of other activities that you can take advantage of during your visit. Snowmobile, archery, horse riding are just some of the extra activities that will give you a unique experience and will certainly fit your trip perfectly!
Visit close cities
Every ski resort in Greece is within close distance of one or more cities. So combine your excursion with a visit to them, get to know their history and their beauties. It is also a first-class opportunity to try local products and visit any of their museums or other attractions.
As noted above, the most important thing is to have the right planning, since if you do not ski, which will keep your interest intense all day long, then you will definitely need exits during your visit. So start with the above tips to enjoy your visit in a ski resort and make your winter vacation unforgettable!
