In the previous two years, the Falakro ski resort had remained closed due to lack of snow. Mount Falakro is located 147 km from Thessaloniki. There are more than 20 slopes of varied altitude (ranging from 1615m to 2232m) and a total length of 22 km at Mount Falakro. There are 9 lifts at the ski field, making this mountain ideal for sports events.
Over 15,000 skiers visited the Falakro ski resort in Drama, in northeastern Greece, during the Christmas holidays.
