Share the Love – Help a Friend Hit the Slopes

It’s already a pretty bumper season of snow on Lebanon’s top ski slopes and we hope that many of you have already managed to make your way out onto the pistes to enjoy some of the outstanding powder that’s fallen so far this year.

If you’re a ski lover, have you considered spreading a little joy? Maybe you’ve got a friend that you’d like to introduce the experience to or maybe you want to stage an intervention and get someone out of their office and onto the mountain.

Flowers to Lebanon - New Gift Service

Luckily, there’s a great new way to share the wealth. Flowers to Lebanon is a great new gift service that allows you to purchase holiday experiences for your friends, colleagues and family. If you feel like playing the guardian angel, you can arrange for one of the very special packages to be sent directly to your lucky recipient.

In addition to gifts and presents, you can get your friends onto the slopes with a full day lift pass for the Mzaar resort. Or if you’re feeling especially generous, you can sign them up for the full ski experience package – plucking them out of the daily grind in Beirut for an amazing trip to the slopes.

Perhaps you’ve got a buddy who’s not so keen on skiing and you want to keep them out of your hair while you get some time to yourself? Why not help them gain a skiier’s appreciation for the breathtaking local scenery by having them hop on the back of a skimobile for a tour. You get to hit the slopes and they get a taste for powder while keeping their feet dry at the same time. Everybody’s a winner!

Of course, there are plenty of other gifts available for delivery if you want to send your commiserations to a friend who can’t get the time off from work to come skiing with you. Perhaps a nice bouquet of flowers or even a cake will be enough to cheer them up!

Share the love, share the fun and tell us about it on Facebook!

MzaarVille Chalets Has Dorm Beds for $40/night!

If you’re like a lot of people in most of the world, this past year has been a little rough on the wallet.

For the budget ski traveller, MzaarVille Chalets has an option that will put a Lebanon ski vacation within reach. This ski season, you can stay at the MzaarVille Chalets in a shared dormitory for only $40/night!

Why stay in a dormitory? Depending on your travel style, the advantages are many. It’s more lively and social to stay in dormitory rooms, giving you a chance to meet fellow skiers. Plus, you still get to enjoy the warm ambiance and cozy common areas of MzaarVille Chalets.

You’ll be right in the heart of Faraya Village, with all its great restaurants, snack bars, and pubs right outside your doorway. And, of course, a great view of the Mzaar ski resort peaks and lifts just beckoning you to jump on and start riding.

Mzaarville Chalets

Birds Eye View of Beirut: Three Ways to Soar over the City

A city like Beirut is best beheld from every angle – including above. Imagine soaring like a bird over this ancient city, taking in a view of the iconic landmarks set against the coast. Dreams of flight can come true in Beirut, now in three amazing ways.

Birdseye on Beirut

1) Beirut by Plane

Hop on board a personal Cessna aircraft flight for the ride of a lifetime. Each person on board the will get a fantastic window view as the pilot points out the highlights – the ancient port city of Byblos, the Rawche rock formations, and tons of surprises! This tour has thought of everything: there is even music on the flight for maximum enjoyment and fond memories.

Check out the Beirut by Plane details.

2) Paragliding in Beirut

The best way to experience paragliding for the first time is a tandem ride with a seasoned professional, and what better place than Lebanon’s famous take-off mountain, Harissa? You’ll run and then soar into a beautiful Mediterranean panorama, remaining airborne for at least 20 minutes. The remarkable thing about Lebanon’s atmospheric conditions is that almost every afternoon is a great afternoon for paragliding. Book your ride today!

More information about Beirut Paragliding.

3) Hot Air Ballooning Above Mzaar Ski Resort

For a leisurely ascent and more time in the air, a hot air balloon ride might be the best way to go. You’ll float over the scenic Mzaar ski resort and take in a breathtaking view of the entire surrounding area. Plan ahead a few days for this one – you must reserve two days in advance, and the trip from start to finish takes four to five hours. This is a small apparatus, so keep your group size to three or less.

Above a city like Beirut, airborne and free is the way to be. Keep in mind, though, that there are more grounded activities, such as trekking, biking, and boat cruising for an active summer vacation in and around this beautiful Mediterranean metropolis.
