The Pierra Creta race started from the love and passion of some friends of the sport on the island. A point of reference for Greece now, it has nothing to envy from similar matches abroad – quite the opposite. During the event, the participants are enchanted with the whole “package”, mountain – ski – hospitality – fun and it has been established as an advertising race of the sport and the place.

International entries will soon outnumber national ones, with the latest event taking in more than 210 entrants, 70 of them foreigners, from 11 different countries for the southernmost skiing event in Europe, which last year twinned with the northernmost one in Tromso, Norway.

A race that literally started as a “joke” became the starting point in a movement for the development of mountain sports tourism in our mountains.
