The Pindos National Park hosts one of the most beautiful ski resorts of Greece. Located on Mount Vasilitsa (2,249m) 42km northwest of the city of Grevena, the ski centre was founded in 1975 and established as the National Ski Centre of Greece in 1991. Winter sports enthusiasts praise the quality and depth of its snow cover and its extended snow season: the resort is open for skiing from the first of December to March, and sometimes well into April. Vasilitsa offers alpine, slalom, downhill, freestyle, cross-country and snowboarding opportunities and hosts several winter sport competitions each year. It now hosts 18 runs, one of which is the longest natural ski run in Greece, 7 lifts (including 2 chair lifts, 4 t-bars and a “baby-lift”) and a snowboard terrain park at 1,850m. Mount Vasilitsa is ideal for off-season fitness activities as well, such as Nordic (ski) walking and trekking.

Appropriate for beginners, it hosts five downhill ski slopes, one cross-country ski run, 2 surface lifts and a baby lift.
