KALAVRITA is the largest ski resort in the Peloponnese, and the only mountain in Greece with a full-time Freestyle Park. Combining tree runs with steep pistes, Kalavrita has something for everybody. It has 2 chairlifts, 3 Anchor lifts and 3 baby lifts.

GETTING THERE

From Athens – head South towards Corinth and Patra. Once you pass Platanos take the exit on the right and follow signs towards the ski resort. It takes between 2 and 3 hours to get there depending on how busy it is. Weekends can be hectic!

LOCAL TIPS

If the snow is good, take the ARTEMIS anchor lift and traverse out to the right of the tree line. Dropping through the trees is tons of fun. Don’t get stranded too far out though. Remember to traverse back to the lift.

BACKCOUNTRY

Touring and hiking here can be tricky. Talk to one of the ski patrollers about snow conditions before heading out.

The trees to the right of the main lifts and pistes are generally a really fun zone to play in, without having to walk too far.

There are some great couloirs on the Western side of the mountain, accessed from the top of Styga lift, with a little bit of a hike. They eventually let out by Lousous village. But you should arrange for a car to be left down there or someone to pick you up. If the snow coverage is thin it could take up to 3 hours to get to the road.

The Northeastern Couloirs are sketchy, but have been ridden. If you’re feeling pretty pro give them a look. If you decide not to jump in you can hit the “Grim Reaper” (Haros) run located just to the left of the main resort buildings and parking lot.
