All runs open on Mount Olympus [www.cyprusski.com]. If on a winter holiday to the island, you can hire equipment there.

I have seen the resort in summer and the infrastructure reminded very much of Scotland.

Interesting, any other brit colonial ski resorts still in action?

They should build one here, not many brit colonies with mountains left so they should make the most of it while it lasts..............

Plenty of our former colonies have ski resorts, aside from the obvious (Canada and New Zealand) you've got Lesotho, Pakistan, India and Australia I can think of. There are probably others. As for the current colonial relics, I don't imagine they're either big enough (Falklands, South Georgia) or have the right climate.

I meant resorts built/started by the pillagers direct? The Cypriot one look like it was built by them for them, them probably being posh inbred soulless twats at they times..

Anyone see a piste map on that site ?

Slightly off topic - I believe some countries ya mentioned still have a governor general, don fugly betty still rules a few colonies, crafty auld cow.....

Yes, she's definitely Queen of Canada, still on all the coins, but only on $10 note. My sister lives near the Niagara escarpment in Ontario, there are plenty of ski tows on there.

40% chance of me moving over tae near London.

They hillbillies started aw the ski resorts in India I had a look at before I got pissed aff at aw the shit they took with them - apple, pear trees and trout so the hillbillies could feel at home etc. Some of the ski resorts are in some serious puff country though.

Can winterhighland sort oot a forum ski and board trip tae India before it turns intae a mushroom cloud? I'll arrange ski and board servicing at the end of the trip as a treat smiling smiley

Aside from the Queen, US and Canadian quarters are very similar and vending machines don't understand the difference! Might be just as well because the rate Trump is going there might be a few less states and a few more provinces !! eye rolling smiley

ah, the Trump Derangement Syndrome infiltrates a thread on snowsports in Cyprus.



It's beggars belief how the deranged can shoehorn Trump into just about everything. Edgy.

Well, the USA has grown over the centuries, the most recent state, Hawaii, joining in 1959, so it was very different in 1783...

The nascent American colonies - 13 of them, represented by the 13 stripes of Old Glory - Were part of British America. After the American War of Independence - to gain independence from The British - The United States was declared...which grew and shrank and grew again over the years.


Very few countries (none) keep the same borders over the years. Just look at Europe: the map looks very different to the map we had at school, and that was not "that" long ago.
