the world's most spectacular roads

Mount Hermon is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2,073 metres (6,801 ft) above the sea level. It straddles one of the world's most infamously contested borders. On one side of the mountain is Israel, and on the other side are Syria and Lebanon.

Located in the Anti-Lebanon mountain range, Mount Hermon Ski Resort is Israel’s only winter ski and snowboard resort located in the Golan Heights in the far north of the country. In the winter, Mount Hermon is open for up to about 50 days of skiing and boarding  year, attracting about 300,000 visitors, generally between January and March.

  

The Mount Hermon ski resort is open only at the peak of winter (usually January–March), when enough snow is accumulated on its ground.  As you drive up to it through the Golan Heights, you pass blocked-off mine fields. The mountain is dubbed the Eyes of the Nation for the view it gives deep into Syria. The Israeli Defense Forces maintain an observation post there, patrolled by the specially trained Alpine Unit. The military base is visible from the ski area, and certain sections of the mountain are restricted to IDF use.
