3-5 Pigadia ski resort

The absolute adventure in an absolutely white setting

3-5 Pigadia (meaning wells) ski resort, the only one using snowmaking in all of its ski runs, is considered to be one of the best organised ski resorts in Greece, boasting modern, up to date facilities. You will find yourself in a lovely natural environment and in the top two most difficult ski runs in the country – a unique combination in Greece – and a tempting one for skiers and other visitors alike!

On the west side of Mt. Vermio, only 17 km away from the city of Naoussa in Northern Greece, at an elevation ranging from 1,430 to 2,005 m. lies 3-5 Pigadia ski centre, a pole of attraction for adrenalin junkies or simply visitors who wish to admire the breathtaking nature.

The ski centre has 10 ski runs of 9 km in length, accommodating all skiing levels, one aerial lift and six surface lifts. “Aristoteles” and “Filippos” ski runs lie surrounded by a spellbinding beech forest and are the two most difficult and steep runs in all of Greece, making this a tempting place well known to advanced skiers.

If you find yourself here, don’t miss out on the opportunity to visit the city of Naoussa, and stroll through Alonia and Metamorfosi, two traditional quarters where you will pass by several grand mansions of an exceptional architecture. “Saranta Outades” is an amazing cave with lovely stalactite and stalagmite formations, also worth your visit. At half an hour’s distance from the city you can visit Vergina, one of the greatest archaeological sites in Greece.
