(Ski touring,Mountaineering,On/Off Piste Ski, Heli-Skiing)
Skiing on the highest slopes of middle-east would be one of your wonderful ski tour memories in Persia with not only its exotic mountains but its rich ancient culture. Iran ski touring is one of the winter adventure activity for most of the tourist who chooses to visit Iran in winter or the first of spring. Interesting fact about Iran ski resorts is that most of them are located in high altitude more than 2000 meters. Because of high altitude, Iran mountains become snow powder paradise from Jan to March. As Iranian skiers do not go off-piste, there is still virgin snow powder route for free riders. The highest Iran ski resort of Mt Damavand at 5,609m (18,403 ft) is one of the most popular places for the ski tour in Iran and it is located 2 hours drive far from capital city Tehran. Beside ski touring, you can have a nice on-piste ski with a very fair price. The heli-ski is the other option you could experience in Iran ski resorts.
