But there was no snow! So we decided to go to the Hermon ski-park (click link to see how park looks in normal winter) so the girls could see at least some snow. We paid 44 shekels entrance each ( 13-14 dollars) and went inside. We got a 6 shekel (2 dollar) a person deduction and it should have rang a bell! It was overcrowded with people and... (almost) no snow! They had taken from the mountain- top a few bulldozers of snow and dumped it on a pile. It was perhaps an area of 30 by 30 feet (10 by 10 meters) where a ton of kids were playing (it was another 7 dollars to rent a small plastic sled for those with little kids).. It was another 70 dollars for us together to go by cablecar to that mountain-top and a waiting line of 1 hour, which we declined. Wat a rip off! I think the girls had fun though with such a rarity as a snowball fight :)
Driving in the clouds
and than into bright skies again....
We went to see the Sa'ar waterfall afterwards (also crowded because of the good weather), girls ate at McDonalds on the way, so not all was lost...especially as Michal was with us who got an unextpected leave from the navy (normally she is only one saturday a month home), so it was fun...but I am still fuming at that snowpark rip off.
Happy end :)
