Snow in Hermon, 31.1.23 (photo: Hermon website)
Good snow began to fall early in the morning (Tuesday) on Mount Hermon and painted the mountain white.
The Hermon site reported that during the night the system intensified, heavy snow falling at all levels from a height of 2,000 meters.
The temperature is -2° in the lower level, strong winds and the snow depth in the lower level is about 7 cm. "Winter welcomes February with a white blanket and two systems are on our way, we are very happy about that, better behind than not at all," stated Miki Inbar, VP The
site will be closed today and tomorrow (Wednesday) to visitors and it is not yet known if there will be a sufficient amount of snow (50 cm) for the site to open for surfing as well.
But Inbar says that a winter system that should be between Wednesday and Thursday, may well brighten the face of surfers.
In any case, those who would like to zip to the north of the Golan to enjoy some winter sights (which has finally arrived), will be able to do so this weekend, which is expected to be sunny and great for hiking.
Don't forget that those who want to enter Hermon must purchase tickets in advance on the website.
