Kalavryta Ski Center Opens For Season
The Kalavryta Ski Center, located on the North West side of Helmos, recently welcomed skiers for the new ski season with many innovations and new services!
Kalavryta’s Snow Park has been fully upgraded while new routes and obstacles to cover all levels of freestyle ski and snowboard have been added. The Funbag inflatable balloon will be available free of charge once again this year with the ski ticket.
The “All inclusive ski Kalavryta” ski package is available again this year (weekends included). The package costs only €45 per person and includes food, accommodation in Kalavryta, a ski pass and equipment hire.
Big changes have also been made to the chalet with special emphasis given to the gastronomy concept as it is based on local products and traditional recipes.
How to get there
The most economical and convenient transportation solution to and from the Kalavryta ski center is via the SNOWBUS provided by Amphitrion Coach Services.
The Snowbus operates on fixed routes from Athens and Corinth to Kalavryta, 5 days a week, every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday throughout the duration of the ski season.
The transportation cost from Athens is €15 (return ticket) and includes discounts on the ski pass (€10 discount on weekends and holidays and €5 discount on weekdays), and on equipment hire, ski lessons and food in the chalet. Additional stops from Athens have been added to the route this year. Click here for reservations.
The Snowbus from Patras will begin 6 January 2013 with official partner G-slalom.
