So Lebanon has snow

Mountain Snow Lebanon

Bordering the eastern Mediterranean Sea, Lebanon might call to mind sunny beaches and historic port cities like Sidon and Tyre. However, the country is also home to towering, snowy mountains and ski resorts. In fact, the name Lebanon is derived from the Semitic word “lbn”, which means “white” in reference to either the snow-covered mountains or limestone cliffs.
