Pisoderi (Greek: Πισοδέρι) is a village 17 km west of Florina, Greece. Nearby, 5 km away, is the ski resort Vigla.

First mentioned in an Ottoman defter of 1481, the village, then known as Ipsoder, had only twelve households.[1]

The ski center is located on Mount Verno, and currently has five lifts and ten trails. The summit of the resort is 1939m above sea level, with a total vertical drop about 420m. The resort has a view of the Lake Prespa, on the border between Greece, Albania and North Macedonia.
