The Northwest part of mountain Olympus is undoubtedly the best choice for skimo. It is the most isolated, remotely, and at the same time the most fascinating part for mountaineering ski!

A unique view unfolds in front of your eyes, as you ascending to reach the summit of Skolio. It is the majestic throne of Zeus with the sea in its background!

The special features of the area, are the isolated alpine landscape and long routes with long runs, (ideally for splitboarders). Great plateaus with an astonishing panoramic view of mountain Olympus. A variety of couloirs to choose for skiing down, wide or narrow! And of course, the opportunity to start and end at the same point.
