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!

To Ski or to Sunbathe?

Which can only mean one thing:

Lebanon Ski Mzaar

Oops, we mean:

Snowboard Lebanon Ski
Not what we had in mind, but that’s actually not a bad idea! The Mzaar resort may be the best resort for skiing, but it also welcomes those who want to go enjoy the snow, the sun, good company and some drinks.

While you’re at it, why not enjoy a ride to the Mzaar’s top peaks on snowmobile and gaze at the Mediterranean on the horizon?

As you probably know by now, the resort is packed on weekends and hosts ultimate nightlife events and that is why chalets and hotels in Mzaar are overbooked. Few rooms remain at the MzaarVille Chalets starting $215 including taxes, the Intercontinental Mzaar Hotel starting $269/night including taxes and breakfast, the Auberge Suisse starting $126/night including taxes and breakfast.

What do you think are the best apres-ski activities in the Mzaar ski resort?
