The ski resort 3-5 Pigadia is located on Mount Vermio, 17 km away. from the city of Naoussa and 110 km from Thessaloniki. Its base is located at an altitude of 1430m. and extends until 2005m.. It has ski pists of all levels of difficulty and endurance road trails, 1 aerial double chair lift, 4 sliding lifts and 1 baby lift. The 3-5 Pigadia ski resort is the only ski resort in the country that has an artificial snow system.

New management (2022 & on)

The management of the ski center has now been taken over by the company “Mountain Tourism Inc”, which has already proceeded with the preparation and maintenance of the equipment for this year’s (2022-2023) winter season, and plans to renew and upgrade the services so that it can operate with the most modern standards and at the same time achieve its 12-month operation.

Next to the aerial lift you can find the Lift Bar, where you can enjoy drinks and snacks, and at the top of the mountain, at 2005m, there is the Chalet where you can enjoy your coffee with an unlimited view of all of Macedonia.

The ski resort also has an equipment rental shop and a ski/snowboard school.


For mountain and skiing lovers, our office organizes a multitude of excursions to the ski center of 3-5 Pigadia every winter season.

Starting from Thessaloniki, the Snowbus departs early in the morning and visits the ski center daily (according to the schedule) so that skiers have the whole day ahead of them to enjoy its slopes. You can combine 2 day trips with a stay at one of the hotels in the area (Koutsoufliani) to make a beautiful multi-day trip to the mountain.

Snowbus benefits

Keep in mind that you can take advantage of special group prices for lift passes and equipment rentals. The prices for the transfer include a snack & coffee in case you forgot your breakfast! Our tours are always accompanied by experienced escorts, personal handpicked from our team.

Early in the afternoon and at the end of the daily operation of the ski lift, the bus departs for the return to Thessaloniki.

The snowbus schedule is updated weekly.
