We’ve been seeing sub-zero temperatures at night and plenty of new snowfall at our favorite ski resorts in Lebanon lately. It can only mean one thing — ski season is just around the corner!
Everybody is speculating about when the lifts will open. The date, as always, depends on the snowpack and conditions of each resort, but we’re ready to make an educated guess as to when that will be.
How do we predict the future of ski conditions and open lifts in Lebanon? We do turn to scientific methods like crystal balls and tea leaf readings, but sometimes we take a more mystical approach, just for fun. Check out our post on three ways to learn the forecast in Lebanon’s resorts.
On top of that, we have a live slopes status page for each of Lebanon’s favorite ski resorts. It gets updated by each resort approximately every morning. For example, in the Mzaar slopes status page, you can see the entire list of Mzaar lifts, from Jonction to Refuge to Wardeh, and check the status of each slope, from baby 1 on Jonction to Vallon on Wardeh. Along with the quick red or green light as to whether or not the slope is open, the page also tells you the lift length, difference in hight from top to bottom, average gradient, top altitude, and difficulty level. So much information, you could plan your whole day on the slopes before you even get here.
Similarly, the Cedars Resort slopes status page is your one-stop guide to conditions to Lebanon’s lesser-known but equally-loved ski resort. Here, find out the status about all six lifts on the mountain: Baby T-bar, Cappucines T-bar, Cappucines Chairlift, Baby lifts, Kornet Chairlift, and Pic des Dames. Again, with information like lift length, difficulty level, maximum altitude, average gradient, and total change in height, you get a clear picture of where to hang out with the kids and where to find yourself a real challenge.
The third slopes status pages is the Laqlouq resort, just between Cedars and Laqlouq. Laqlouq has a more laid-back atmosphere for taking your time on the slopes and teaching the kids. Find out what the situation on the slopes is today, with all the same stats and information.
Right now, all we see is red ‘closed’ lights, but we know that the green ‘open’ light is about to go up any day. Rumor has it that some slopes are open already at Cedars. To put a finger on the pulse of what Lebanon ski fans are predicting themselves, we took a Facebook poll about when our fans think the slopes will be open, and the most popular answer was ‘before Dec 10.’
