Damavand Ski Tour
Damavand is the highest ski resort in the middle-east and is a good place for winter sports. In good snow condition it is possible to ski the whole mountain, about 12,000 meters (39,370 feet) of vertical descent. It is a good resort for wild ski, off-piste ski touring and snowboarding tours.
Because of its vicinity to the Caspian Sea Mount Damavand receives a great amount of snowfalls each year. South Face is the best track for ski tours, this route has a mild slope for ascending up to 5200 meters and after that it is steeper. Ski touring is difficult on other routes. It is possible to ski the mountain in winter and spring. Damavand has no mechanical facility such as ski lift, cable cabin, chair lift, gondola. Therefore ascend is done on feet (plus crampons), snowshoes or by ski (skins).
Damavand Ski Season
Damavand ski season mainly depended on the amount of snowfall in the area. The quantity of snow is different each year and it rely on the weather. Ski time may starts from mid-November and last until mid-May. Damavand ski tours usually go in March and April. It is better to check the snow condition in advance before you fix your travel to the area. See also Damavand Weather.
