Troodos Ski

Skiing in Cyprus

A vast portion of the western side of Cyprus is covered by the majestic Troodos mountain, which offers a respite from the heat of summer and opportunities for outdoor activities during the winter. In close proximity to the summit of the Troodos Mountains, the sole ski centre in Cyprus can be found.

Mount Olympus is approximately 2 kilometres from the Troodos resort hotel, 12 kilometres from the Platres resort hotel, and approximately an hour’s journey from Limassol and Nicosia, both of which are located on the coast.
