1. Snow ski in the mountains and water ski in the Mediterranean in the span of four hours.
Lebanon is one of the smallest countries in the world, but it’s also one of the most diverse — set against the Mediterranean Sea to the west, Lebanon goes from sea level to an elevation of over 10,000 feet rather quickly. The country’s ski season typically runs from December to April. In the spring, the weather often also happens to be perfect for a day at the beach. On an ideal spring day, one can hit the slopes in the morning, followed by a dip in the Mediterranean’s refreshing waters in the afternoon.
