Description

Join me for a week of off-piste skiing in the spectacular resorts of Dizin and Shemshak in Iran. You’ll spend your days ski touring on powder snow in the gorgeous Alborz Range on an altitude as high as up to 4000m and have an incredible time!

The tour will take you to two of the most popular ski resorts in the country. We’ll indulge in a daily activity of up to 8 hours every day so some avalanche knowledge would definitely come in handy. We’ll typically be working in groups and all you’ll need is a good level of fitness to join me.

The trip will begin by picking you up from the airport and then transferring you to the beautiful off-piste ski resort of Dizin. You’ll spend the next couple of days enjoying off-piste skiing in the resort and also go for ski-touring in the neighboring area. It would definitely be a very enjoyable experience.

Next, we’ll transfer you to Shemshak and you’ll go for ski tours in this beautiful region. The next few days will be spent visiting the high peaks of Alborz including Peak Abak (3550m), Golezard (3350m) and Mount Damavand ( up to 4200m) and it will be truly incredible skiing at such an altitude.

You’ll get ample time to ski on powder snow in the spectacular terrain of Alborz before getting back to Tehran to end this trip.

Doesn’t this sound like an ideal way to spend your winter vacation? So, send a message now to reserve your spot on this amazing adventure in Iran. And if you like the feel of this trip, you might also like to visit Zagros mountains for another ski-adventure.
