Mount Olympus winter season 2024

Dear fellow mountaineers,
First, Happy New year with powerful climbs and majestic ski descends!
In 2024 we celebrate 20 years of existence and persistence, of getting inspired by the iconic rack face dubbed “Throne of Zeus” and of successfully managing alpine refuge of Ch. Kakkalos. We kick off the winter season in late March, to ensure that conditions will be favorable for mountaineering and skiing and the avalanche danger will be reduced.

Our first planned opening period will be from March 16 to March 26, as we will host climbers and skiers from Greece and France. There will be another period of refuge opening later in the season, by mid-to late April.
This year we join forces with the Limnads team and have already launched the first ever community snow observations campaign, to better understand the how the Greek snowpack changes during the season and how its links with the water discharge. Find out more in the following links:
