Cedars is located about 2hrs drive north of Beirut. It is slightly higher than Faraya, with a slightly longer ski season as a result. In fact the season here is surprisingly long. It can begin in November and usually ends in late April. Cedars has changed a lot since the government installed the first lift in 1953. At a cost of $15,000,000, the latest improvements are the replacement of 3 old Tbars with new chair lifts and a new gondola for 2006 that will soon carry skiers from the base area up to 2870m. New roads and a new hotel at the base area are planned too. The skiing area is respectable; perfect for learners, but with enough steep off-piste to challenge better skiers. The après-ski is worthwhile too, and there is plenty to see besisdes the famous ancient Cedars forest, with fascinating old buildings in the nearby Kadisha Valley. Bcharreh, a neighboring village of the Cedars, is the birthplace and resting place of Gibran Khalil Gibran, Lebanon's most famous poet, artist and novelist.The Cedars ski slopes normally operate from 8:00 am till 3:30 pm during weekdays and 4:00 pm during weekends and holidays.

Visitor Reviews of Cedars

Went after a great 45cm snowfall in Feb 2018. Resort is basic but very nice with a friendly restaurant. They groom some parts, and had most lifts open despite there being not so many people.
Lift tickets were 60k LBP on weekends, 45k LBP on weekdays. Rentals ran 15k LBP per day, and could be negotiated down across multiple days.
Unfortunately, they allowed snowmobiles on the runs which churned up the surface (for better and worse), and caused great noise and air pollution. Still, I would certainly go again for the 1950s "few people live in the world" vibe.
