The Mount Hermon area is a great place to relax not only during the winter months, but also has something to do on the hottest days of the Israeli summer.
Hiking to the top of the mountain, excursions to places associated with tradition and history, walks in picturesque surroundings, cable car rides, summer tubing, go-karting, the SKY RIDER attraction - all this awaits visitors at the only ski resort in Israel.
Hermon also attracts the attention of Israelis and guests of our country in summer. The ski resort covers an area of 2,432 dunams and is located at an altitude of 1600-2040 meters above sea level. In the summer, when the snow has already melted, visitors can take the cable car to the top of the mountain at an altitude of 2040 meters for stunning panoramic views.
The ascent by cable car, which is 1250 meters long, takes 15 minutes one way. The new lift works according to the DETACHABLE method: the cabs enter the station at a slow speed, which allows visitors to get into or out of the cab on their own, without assistance, without stopping it completely.
A total of 42 cabins are provided on the new lift, each weighing 750 kg. One cabin is designed for 8 passengers, and the ascent time is 5 minutes. The cabin meets the accessibility standards for people with disabilities and can accommodate 2 more wheelchairs in addition to the specified number of passengers.
The cable car operates all year round, and anyone can use it (cost 54 shekels per person).
Another attraction of the Hermon resort is carting - riding on three-wheeled ATVs along specially prepared mountain trails from a height of 850 meters. ATVs do not have a motor, but their cross-country ability on a mountain road is great. You can ride this ATV from the age of 16, it is absolutely safe, fast, perfect for outdoor enthusiasts. They climb to the starting point of the descent on a cable car, put on a helmet, and slide down with the breeze.
Summer tubing, or in other words, an inflatable sled is another great attraction for the whole family, available to children from 5 years old.
"Extreme tubing" is located along a kilometer-long road, along which a two-seater plastic sled moves at a speed of about 45 km / h, the rider can control the speed of the sled with the hand brake. Along the route there are ascents, descents, and sharp turns, which offer views of the surrounding mountains. "Extreme tubing" is available from the age of 10, while the height of the passenger must be at least 140 cm. You can ride in pairs or alone - the effect of skiing is unforgettable.
Next to the "extreme tubing" is the SKY RIDER, which resembles a roller coaster. The attraction, brought from Germany, is a track closed in a circle, along which double suspended seats move. The twin seat with lap belts, like in an airplane, holds the riders firmly, while their legs dangle between the sky and the ground during a dizzying flight along the circular route.
The length of the ring is 320 meters and the way along it takes 2 minutes. The height of the tallest support column is 15 meters above the ground. 350 people can ride it in an hour.
The attraction is open throughout the year, and thrill-seekers will love it.
Children 6 years and older are allowed, at least 120 cm in height. Children under 8 years old cannot ride on their own, without an adult (accompanying person must be over 14 years old).
