In the massif of Voras
and at an altitude of 2040 to 2524 metres, the slopes of the Ski Resort by the
same name are developed.
The resort has been in operation since 1995. The resort is situated at a distance
of about 45 km northwest of Edessa
and 140 km from Thessaloniki.
The long duration of snow covering, the unique natural scenery, but also the
possibility of accommodation in traditional villages, which have preserved their
traditional colors, has contributed to the quick expansion of their reputation
on national level and has led to the ongoing developing tourist movement in
The Voras Ski Resort (Kaimakstsalan) has 6 lifts, which provide access to
13 ski-slopes of several difficulty degrees, while a Snowmobile slope has also
been shaped, as well as a Snowboard Fun park to satisfy the most demanding skiers.
The wider region is available for mountain ski, providing the possibility of
rambling in interesting forest paths.
Experienced trainers are participating in the operation of ski and snowboard
schools, offering an enjoyable contact with the exciting winter sports to inexperienced
skiers, while the little stores of renting-selling equipment on the ground-floor
of the chalet give everyone interested the possibility of obtaining the necessary
equipment for a comfortable jaunt in the snow.
In the area of the chalet and at an altitude of 2040 m, a guesthouse operates
with a restaurant and an ouzo-tavern, while at 2100 m in a pure-white frozen
