Could Iran Be The Best Place To Go Off-Piste Skiing?
CNN Travel

Ski Iran is an off-piste Adventure. Combining amazing culture and unforgettable skiing experiences. We'll be flying into Tehran with a city stopover before heading high up into the Alborz mountain range for an off-piste adventure.

The Alborz mountain range is in northern Iran and stretches from the border of Azerbaijan along the western and entire southern coast of the Caspian Sea and finally runs northeast and merges into the Aladagh Mountains. We'll be skiing in central Alborze north of Tehran. The highest mountain in the area is Mount Damavand reaching a height of 5,610m. With a total of 4 ski resorts, this will be an off-piste adventure like no other. We are running the trip in partnership with Mountain Heaven who have been running ski trips to Iran for the past couple of years. The trip will be hosted by a Snoworks instructor in conjunction with a Mountain Heaven representative. Joining us locally will be a further tour guide and local mountain guide. Mountain Heaven have all the local contacts to ensure the trip runs seamlessly.

Skiing in Iran is little known outside of Iran itself with only a handful of ski adventurers traveling there. It's an immense mountain range largely untapped. After our city stopover in Tehran, it will be up to the mountains where we'll be skiing the resorts of Dizin, Shemshak, Darbandsar and Tochal. The trip is open to competent off-piste skiers, Snoworks level 5 upwards. Ski touring equipment is required. This can be organized with Snoworks. Some touring experience is necessary. If you have not ski toured before this can be learned on a Snoworks Backcountry Access Course prior to this trip.

The off-piste will be mostly lift accessed with the use of skins when to access further off-piste.

ITINERARY

SAT 10 MARCH
Depart UK Arrive Tehran + 1 day (see flight details below)
We'll transfer to our hotel in Tehran and check-in. We'll have the whole day and evening sightseeing in the amazing city. Evening and night in Tehran.

"Hugging the lower slopes of the magnificent, snow-capped Alborz Mountains, Tehran is Iran’s most secular and liberal city. Spend time here – as you should – and you'll soon realise that the city is so much more than a chaotic jungle. This is the nation's dynamic beating heart. Exploring this fascinating metropolis will transport you on a journey through more than 250 years of Iranian history – from the glittering Golestan Palace and the adjacent Grand Bazaar to the beautiful Azadi Tower. Contemporary cafes, traditional teahouses you can enjoy all that's good about Tehran.
