Description

Iran makes us dream. It’s already a trip in our minds: the culture, hospitality, history. And for us, it’s also great freeride ski, adventurous and free! Imagine skiing in lost zones, discover small valleys, then large and long slopes in the discovery of villages.

Nothing is set in stone, we only have to enjoy the freedom of these mountains. These mountains are located between Dizin and Shemshak, Sarbansar, to the northwest of Tehran. Here we will look for the best conditions, put on the skins and go to the tops.

In fact, it’s not rare to arrive to a village and share some tea with the locals. We will relax by the fire while we wait for our transfer back to the base camp.

The first ski day is right above Tehran, in the Tochal station, with incredible views over Elbruz (Alborz), Damava, and the city at the same time!

Some of the highlights of this trip include:
– great itineraries in a varied and magnificent setting
– accommodation in comfortable hotels, with Iranian gastronomy and a very warm welcome
– a complete change of scenery
– a flexible program, to adapt to the conditions.

Are you a group of friends or a family? Do you want to adapt this trip or leave in a different date? Of course it’s possible!

Disclaimer

This is an example of freeride and ski touring in Itan. The weather and snow conditions, as well as the level of the participants, may make me modify the program or the order of the itinerary, in different areas or a neighbouring country. IMPORTANT: if you are joining a group, please be aware that I need a minimum of participants to guarantee the departure. You’ll be notified the latest 21 days before the starting date in case I need to cancel because of a lack of participants. Your money will then be transferred back.

There may be some short steep passages. It's possible to make short ascents on skins (no more than 45 min per day and you don't need to have ski touring experience). To carry: a light bag with what you need for the day. I can loan you safety material (AVD, shovel, probe). Calculate around 90€ for the lifts, which are not included in the price.
