The ski season is not very long, from December to April. There is not always snow cover, you need to know in advance about its availability. Temperatures in Troodos Mountains may drop to
-5 ° C at night and about + 4 ° C during the day. Snow cover reaches 2 meters on the lower slopes, rising up to 2.5 meters on the highest peak of the mountain ranges, Mount Olympus.
The current situation can be monitored using webcams. But the snow on the slopes melts faster on the south side. Therefore, the lack of cover at these locations is not a fact that the slopes are unsuitable for skiing. It is necessary to analyze the situation on other slopes.
There are two popular ski resorts in Cyprus. The summit for skiing is just below the highest point of Troodos at an altitude of 1900 meters. Places for recreation and independent travel just below Mount Olympus in Sun Valley, where there is a ski rental shop, you can buy a pass for the whole day or for a certain number of slopes.

Each has its own lift which should cut down on waiting times. The slopes are designed for skiers and snowboarders with a variety of skiing skills - from amateurs to professionals.

Its buildings are located in the capital, so on a short trip you can enjoy the beauty of the island. The hospital has a full list of services to match modern realities, thanks to which you do not have to look for other institutions and chase an appointment with a specific doctor. Over the years of development and reorganization, the hospital has also become a training center in many areas of scientific medicine. After graduation and practice, the student can be selected as an employee and left on a permanent basis. All wards and offices are equipped with the latest equipment, corresponding to advanced technologies, which helps doctors more accurately diagnose and prescribe subsequent treatment. In addition to the above, the BUBV has its own hospital with comfortable conditions.
Many women in labor will be happy to learn about the Birth Abroad program, this center has a large obstetrics department.
