Useful notes

The Profitis Ilias Ski Center used to operate only in winter season until 2005. Since November 2005 it was transformed into a park, which is able to operate all year around. This change was because of the synthetic carpet installation on the Politsira 1 slope, 300 m in length and 12 m in width, as also of the construction of snow tubing slope, 72 m in length, consisting of two big turns.  The descent with a bladder on this slope is an incredible experience, which worth to try.
Every year thousands of visitors arrive at ski center either to have activities and games related to snow (ski, snow board, ski board, etc.) either, combined with their visit to Metsovo, to have a coffee within the snowed landscape.
Except from amateurs - visitors want to exercise on ski, panhellenic & prefectural championships are organized every year, in which many athletes participate.

  1. Race for Panhellenic championship (cross-country ski).
  2. Peripheral races (cross-country ski).
  3. Roller ski races.
Timing tubing races all year around, local downhill ski races and many other events are also taking place here.
