Only in Crete

Visitors can’t imagine Crete with snow. Let alone a mountain ski race, every two years on Psiloritis mountain. The event’s name is Pierra Creta. 

Last Sunday we climbed to the mountain. Snow was 2 metres high, it was foggy and cold and rained frequently. But 200 participants, among them some foreigners from seven different countries, made it to the finish! 

It was a surreal event. A modern mountain activity combined with authentic Cretan culture. 

Enjoy the photos!
