This trip consists of two parts; Ski touring, exercising and acclimatization program through Dobrar Mountain Ridgeline around 4000 m & ski touring-mountaineering in Mt Damavand 5610 m. It has been designed to take advantage of exceptional deep powder skiing during the late winter and early spring months in a couple of Mountains around 4000 m and massive Mt Damavand. During this period, snow is quite stable and there is a little chance of avalanche. This program is ideal for people who have previous experience in randonee or telemark skiing. The days spent are quite vigorous engaged both uphill and downhill skiing. So we expect our clients to be quite fit and capable of handling various snow conditions that one will inevitably encounter on such trips. There is also the matter of climbing Iran’s highest peaks and then skiing down to double the fun.

After an early breakfast, we will be picked up from Lasem village; taking us towards south face of Damavand Mountain’s second camp called “Goosfand Sara” (3000m). Sometimes the road is blocked by snow, therefore we might need to skin up on skis from some point towards the second camp. When we arrive, we will take some rest before continuing ski touring to the 3rd camp (Bargah Sevom or Shelter 3) at 4250m. Skiing time would be between 6 to 8 hours depending on the ability and speed of the group. There will be a good opportunity to socialize with other skiers and climbers who are usually in the shelter (total ascent from 2nd camp 1250m). We will stay in the shelter for the night. (B, L, D)
