    Have you ever dreamed of traveling to Iran ? This is the opportunity to discover this amazing country enjoying what you like most to do: skiing in zagros!

    I propose a 10-day ski touring program during while besides skiing the best spots in Zagros, we will also explore the incredible Iranian culture. From the magnificent landscapes to the really kind inhabitants and monuments, Iran it’s an option that everyone should discover!

    The trip will lead you to discover the most exciting ski touring spots in the amazing Zagros mountain range. It is the largest one in Iran and its highest point is Dena. It is considered a sacred range by the Kurds, an ethnic group that live in the area.

    Additionally, it owns a unique and spectacular natural beauty, with a really rich and complex flora and fauna. So, it is not only a skiing attraction but also a real beautiful natural attraction in the world.

    Some of the highlights of this interesting program around Zagros massif are:
    • Incredible ski touring spots in the most isolated and magnificent mountains;
    • Further, the accommodation is really comfortable;
    • Base in the amazing Isfahan with its  traditional Bazaars and mosques;
    • Lastly, and one of the most important things is the guiding by a IFMGA certified mountain guide assisted also by a local guide.

    I have already programmed the next departure for 2017 from January, 27th to February, 5th. Although, if you can’t attend at this date, feel free to ask me to organised it for other date.

    Some points to keep in mind for those who want to participate in this great adventure:

    • Skiers/snowboarders must have prior ski touring experience and be comfortable with conversions.
    • In addition, it’s necessary to be in very good physical condition available to skiing for 6 hours per day and some climb on foot.
    I invite you to contact me if you have any interest in this program. It will be my pleasure to discuss the trip and be your guide in this incredible place. Come on, i’m waiting for you!

    I was disappointed. I was slower than the rest of the group reaching Tete Rousse, and the guide discouraged me from going to Gouter. I had a slight ankle sprain the day before which slowed my ascent. I recovered 95% the day after. My complaint: when I decided to go for a second guided attempt, at a slower pace, I received no help in securing a guide, or a reservation at Gouter. The online reservation showed fully booked both for Rousse and Gouter. But I know that there were lots of empty bunks at Rousse, and I suspect the same at Gouter. I received sympathy, but only as a formality. Initially I had sought a single dedicated guide, but I was encouraged to join a group. I did not get a choice.I should have known better, I knew my pace would be a bit slower, but I counted on your support and understanding. I got neither. I was on my own with no help.
