Since ancient times these mountains have been a source of legends and stories told through the centuries. This is the cradle of the mythical singer Orpheus. Magnificient pine forests, green meadows and mountain peaks bathed in sunlight will make your vacation here unforgetable. The resort boasts 25 km of excellent ski-runs and 38 km of cross-country skiing tracks served by 18 lifts with a total capacity of 8500 persons per hour. All ski runs are safeguarded and maintained in very good condition.
