Temperatures have plummeted, the first snow of the season has fallen, and Cyprus is in lockdown! As the Troodos peaks shimmer under a veil of snow, most of us are eagerly anticipating the day that we can make a day of it on the island’s dazzling heights, and even, enjoy a good old ski or snowboarding session. Here’s a select pick of photos taken this month that we love, showcasing the beauty of the highest mountain peaks blanketed in white.
