This trip consists of two parts; skiing and ski-mountaineering in Mt Damavand 5610 m. You will enjoy skiing on deep powders during the late winter and early spring months when snow is quite stable however there is a little chance of avalanche. This program is ideal for people who is well-experienced in randonee or telemark skiing. As this tour is quite vigorous engaged both uphill and downhill skiing, so we expect our clients to be quite fit and capable of handling various snow conditions. Also climbing Iran’s highest peak and skiing down is part of the program to double the fun.
