With its beautiful beaches and warm seas, the Greek island of Crete ranks as one of the top summer vacation spots in the world. Few people realize however that Crete is mountainous and that it receives abundant snowfall in winter. Concerned that the mega-industry of summer beach tourism has begun to alter the fabric of the island, a group of mountaineers set about to organize the first ever winter ski mountaineering race on Crete.
