School Ski Holiday Trips to Lebanon

The Mzaar ski resort in Lebanon is ideal for a beginner to get his or hers first taste of snow-sports.  It is by far the biggest and best ski resort in Lebanon and is run very efficiently.  The wide and gentle slopes of both Warde and Jonction domains are the perfect place for children to learn either ski or snowboard.  Please refer to our general Ski Lebanon page for more information on this great resort including weather forecast, available slopes and lifts as well as much more.


 Varianos Travel is pleased to be a partner with Mount Smash Resort and Club operating in Faraya, Lebanon.  With 20 years of experience in skiing trips to Lebanon we are offering ski packages especially designed for high school students with accommodation at Mount Smash.  We can tailor make packages according to your school’s half term and number of participants and can also include cultural activities.  Minimum stay is two nights and recommended length is four nights.  Beginners are especially welcome as well as non school affiliated groups. 


    The Mount Smash Ski School is run by the same people that run the Lebanese Ski School, in our mind the best ski and snowboard instruction outfit in the Mzaar ski resort.  It has a team of qualified snow-sports instructors that children are sure to learn from and at the same time have fun with.  Mount Smash school ski trips offer affordable prices while at the same time providing  quality in lodging and catering.  Emphasis is placed in the children's safety and the educational value of a trip to Lebanon.
