The Second Ski Trip 
  
            The photos on this trip are of the second-ever group coach tour from Kyrenia (organised by             Cyprus Mountaineering) to ski in the Troodos Mountains following the relaxation of the border controls,
            which enabled freer passage to the south from the north of Cyprus.
 
 
         
 
 
         
 
 
         
 
 
            Hatice Ozalp was the second Turkish Cypriot to take advantage of the ski trips to Troodos

            The Sun Valley Cafeteria - not at all like the up-market bars of the Alps, but very adequate!
