Splurge! Lebanon’s Five Flashiest Mountain Lodges

Maybe you’ve gotten some shiny new ski equipment for the 2012 season, and you’re looking for a flashy hotel to match. Maybe you got a holiday bonus at work and you’re feeling a little extra spendy. Or maybe you’re just curious about where the VIPs stay when escaping Beirut and heading for the mountains. Any reason is a good reason to check out the fanciest accommodations that Lebanon’s mountain resort areas have to offer. Here’s to living large (or just wishful thinking!)

1) Aux Cimes Du Mzaar

Mzaar’s newest premier hotel! Aux Cimes Du Mzaar is a mountain boutique resort that is supremely located at the base of the Jabal Dib ski lifts and the Jonction ticket counter.
Luxurious touches: balconies facing the slopes or the mountains, LCD TV screens in the suites.
Star rating: four stars

2) InterContinental Resort, Mzaar

A long-time favorite and Mzaar landmark, the InterContinental at Mzaar is Lebanon’s only five-star ski accommodation. With 131 units, it’s also one of the largest. The amenities here are everything you’d expect: bathrobes, slippers, fireplaces, and all sorts of rich details that make the splurge worth it.
Star rating: five stars

3) Etoile Du Mzaar Chalets
Etoile-du-mzaar-chalet
A smaller, more exclusive chalet with only three apartment-style units, Etoile Du Mzaar Chalets is synonymous with luxury.

New Year’s Resolution: Ski Better!

ski_lessons_farayaOut with the old, in with the new. That’s the beauty of a new year, when we all have the chance to hit ‘reset’ and start fresh. It’s a good time to take a look at ourselves in the proverbial mirror and think about what we’d like to improve.

At Skileb.com, our New Year’s resolution is obvious — we want to perform even better out there on the slopes. There’s nothing like reaching a new goal or breaking a personal record. No matter what your level of skiing or riding may be, there’s always room for improvement. Now on Skileb.com, you can book your ski class, private ski lesson, or lessons for kids, all online while building your Lebanon ski trip.

Let’s Begin – Lessons for kids

Lebanon is an ideal destination for learning to ski, especially for kids. The two major resorts, Mzaar ski resort and the Cedars resort, both offer awesome classes to families with kids ages five and up. Well-qualified instructors are pros at the art of teaching through games and fun challenges. Kids will learn to get a feel for the snow, relax, and gain confidence quickly. Help your kids love and master the elegant lifelong sport of skiing from an early age. A pastime like this is one of the best gifts you can possibly share!

Ski school for groups

If you have a group of up to 8 learners, then Skileb.com can arrange a ski or snowboard class for your group. We can accommodate skill levels from beginner to advanced to professional. Great for extended families, school groups, and company events. There’s no better team-building exercise and good fun for your group than a day of learning on the slopes.

Private lessonsfaraya_skiing_2

Private lessons are a great idea for any level of skier or rider. Even advanced level pros can benefit from the insights and input of a specialist. Whether you’ve hit a dead end on the improvement curve or you just want some third-person advice on your strengths and weaknesses, a few hours of coaching from our well-qualified multi-lingual instructors could go a very long way.

Resolve to start your ski season on the right foot with a strategy for how to improve. What can you do right now, from that seat in front of a screen? Check out our special ‘snow tips and tricks’ page for some great advice articles.
