The Holy Land has a special allure attributed to its holy sites of Jerusalem and Nazareth, and thousands of tourists descend on the country every year despite the ongoing turmoil with the Palestine struggle. There are also some exciting modern cities inand bathing on the Red Sea is a highlight. There is only one ski resort in the north of the country, which receives a glut of determined sliders throughout the ski season between December and April.
Mount Hermon is the highest point in Israel and is located in the north of the country, not far from Nazareth. There is a good complement of runs here — 30 miles in total — that are geared to beginner and intermediate skiers and snowboarders. There is also a fairly long slope here too, and the vertical is a respectable 2,000 feet.
A sledge rollercoaster and sleigh rides are available at Mount Hermon, while some of the top hotels in the area sport Jacuzzis and saunas. You will find refreshments at the resort, while the nearby village of Neve Ativ offers accommodation, restaurants and bars.
