Only a couple hour drive from Beirut lies the high plateaus of Mount Lebanon which are ideal for cross-country skiing. On the plateau of Laqlouq above 2000m is a paradise for skiers with circuits over 20km long. For an adventure, drive over to the Cedars Area and ascend the plateau to 2800m leading up to Qornet es Sawda at 3088m (the highest peak of the Mount Lebanon range). Also, check out trails near the Faraya ski resort.
