    The weekend itinerary is as enticing as it gets:
    Friday:

    1- Gather in Jdeideh at 2:00 PM.
    2- Pause at Baloua Balaa to marvel at the cascading waterfall.
    3- Proceed to our snug mountain hotel, our cozy abode for the night.
    4- Embark on a delightful stroll near the hotel, soaking in the serene surroundings.
    5- Indulge in a delectable feast by the fireside, creating cherished memories together.

    Saturday:

    1- Enjoy a hearty breakfast, and once the group from Jdeideh arrives, we'll kick off our snowshoeing adventure.
    2- Choose your adventure level! We'll explore a new route on the eastern side, where abundant snow, breathtaking vistas, and majestic cedar trees await. While both paths cover the same ground, the more daring route presents steeper hills and a longer journey, rewarding you with sweeping panoramas from atop the cross.
    3- Take a break for a cozy cup of coffee or tea by the fireplace at a charming restaurant.
    4- On our way back, we'll pause in Annaya to visit the St. Charbel monastery, where you can relish a meal or indulge in whatever your heart desires.
