Climate

The Golan is in the Mediterranean climate zone, characterized by dry summers and wet winters. Snow falls for a few days every winter on the high northern end of the Golan, where on Mount Hermon enough snow to operate the local ski slope usually accumulates. The snow caps the Hermon for six months of the year, while the southern part of the Golan gets about 450 mm of rain annually retaining a relatively dry climate.


Mount Hermon, at 2,814 meters above sea level, is one of the highest mountains in the region. The summit is covered with snow from December to March, with snow patches remaining on the mountain throughout the year. A ski slope and ski school operate during the winter.
