“Ski and swim in the same day.” This popular slogan captures Lebanon’s awesome contrasts. Where else in the world can you really hit world-class ski slopes in the morning, and be close enough to Mediterranean beaches to take a dip in the afternoon?
It’s true, few other places on earth can boast such drastically different scenery in such a small area. But is it really true that you can “ski and swim in the same day” in Lebanon?
Last weekend, Lebanon’s same-day claim to fame was confirmed by Daily Star reporter Alex Taylor. Although, has he aptly points out, there are only a “few magical days” each year when the weather cooperates enough for it to happen.
Those few magical days are happening right now! Mzaar ski resort has just announced that it has extended its season until this Sunday, April 15. This coming weekend is your big chance to pack the best of Lebanon into one day.
Don’t miss your chance for the last run of the season at Mzaar, and then get a head start on your tan for the summer at premier beaches like Edde Sands in Jbeil, Byblos. What could be better? If only the “best of both worlds” slogan were true every day of the year.
