The ski resorts currently has 5 lifts and 16 ski trails. The summit of the resort is 2113m above sea level and the total vertical drop about 450m. The quality and quantity of snowfall at Vasilitsa allow for many off-piste routes. It is the only Greek ski resort with superb black-pine trees surrounding the ski trails.
