As Lebanon settled into the New Year, those in the ski industry hoped for a shift in the weather, after an unusually dry start to winter.Rainfall since the beginning of 2018 has been well short of the average – in a continuation of the dry spell experienced in the last months of 2017 – and some ski resorts have not yet been able to open their slopes due to a dearth of snow. This year, the meager snowfall has actually helped businesses in the area.In and around central Beirut, around 230 mm of rainfall has fallen so far in 2018, compared to the 351 mm average for this period.
