Lebanon, you say? Another unlikely addition to our list, but its said to have a great mix of surf and snow.

If you’re into exploring backcountry terrain and hitting natural features, then the big ski resorts, The Cedars and Faraya, are the places to go.

The majority of the mountain remains untracked even after a heavy dump, so you can be almost guaranteed fresh lines without hauling yourself out of bed for first lifts.

Climb in the car and drive an hour and a half north west, where you’ll find the surf town of Batroun.

OK, so the Mediterranean isn’t exactly known for its major swells, but they do happen. Keep your eyes on the charts for a storm and 14+ hours of strong winds.

If the surf is flat, you can learn to windsurf, kitesurf or go stand-up paddle boarding with Batroun Water Sports.
