Back when a Full Ski Day Used to Cost 25 Liras

I discovered this outdated poster on Save Beirut Heritage’s FB web page taken from the Day by day Star and it dates again to January 15 1966. The poster is by Kurban Excursions (undecided if it’s the identical Kurban everyone knows these days) and is selling three ski gives to Faraya/Mzaar.

The complete day used to price 25 LL, whereas a 5 day trip used to price 129LL all inclusive. If I’m not mistaken, 1 US greenback was value three Lebanese kilos earlier than the civil struggle, so 25 LL is round eight$ and 129 is round 43 .

43 these days received’t even cowl half a ski day in Kfardebian (we’re not allowed to say Faraya anymore).
