Mzaar: Jonction slope

With the Smart Skier deal, we’ve taking all the planning, hassle and worry out of your trip to Lebanon so that all you have to do is show up, ski your heart out by day, and enjoy the cozy comforts and high spirits of Mzaar by night.

Day 1
When you arrive at the airport, we’ll have transportation waiting there for you. It will take you directly to the MzaarVille Chalets, adjacent to Mzaar ski resort, about an hour’s drive from Beirut.  You’ll have time to settle into your chalet and relax by the fireplace in one of Mzaar’s all-time favorite chalet accommodations.

Day 2
Wake up to a lovely view of the snow-covered slopes that are just calling your name outside. Enjoy breakfast at Mange Tout Terrace restaurant, which is built in to the MzaarVille complex. From there, claim your rental gear at the sports shop, redeem your ski pass, and you’ll be ready for the first run of the day. Rinse and a repeat. You’ll have a total of solid three days of ski fun in Lebanon.

Day 3
Pretty much like like day two. Wake up, get ready, enjoy a great day on the slopes, and pass the evening dining and relaxing around MzaarVille Chalets.

Day 4
See days 1 and 2. Enjoy the third day of your lift ticket. Then, when the ski day is over, we’ll transfer you back to the airport in time for you to catch your flight from Beirut.

There’s really no better way to pack more into a four-day ski getaway in Lebanon. Another plus is that we’ll adjust the itinerary to fit your flight schedule to ensure that you get as much skiing in as possible. So if you arrive early on day 1 and leave early on day 4, then you can start skiing straight away. The price includes airport transfers, three nights’ stay at MzaarVille Chalets, ski or snowboard rentals and a three-day lift ticket. Now that’s one smart deal. Times three.

Go for it! Book our Smart Skier Package today.

MzaarVille Chalets Has Dorm Beds for $40/night!

It’s official. The first snow of the 2011-2012 season has fallen in Lebanon, and winter has begun. In just a few short months, this will turn into a great snowpack covered with great new layers of fresh powder. Skiers, it’s time to start salivating.

If you’re like a lot of people in most of the world, this past year has been a little rough on the wallet. The global economic downturn has meant less spare change for a lot of people, and ski holidays may seem too big to fit into tighter budgets. But don’t despair! Lebanon offers a great bargain in ski travel. Compared to their European counterparts, Lebanon ski resorts and hotels give you much more bang for your buck.

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.

In Lebanon, you’ll find great value for your money. You have a bed waiting for you for just $40/night! Now there’s really no excuse. Start planning a Lebanon ski trip today.
