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 have previous experience 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 peaks and skiing down to double the fun is part of the program.

Dobrar Ridgeline:
Dobrar (Ghareh Dagh) Ridgeline is an impressive 52 Km long mountain chain that forms a continuous wall in the southeastern portion of the Central Alborz Mountains of northern Iran. This ridgeline gives rise to more than 20 named peaks and many other unnamed high points. The elevations of 5 of these peaks exceed 4000 m. The highest of these peaks is the 4072 m summit of the West Dobrar Peak. The ridgeline starts near the Emamzadeh Hashem Pass on Haraz (Tehran-Amol) Road and heads east to end near the village of Seh Band on Firooz Kooh (Tehran-Sari) Road.
