But, why have the Iran ski resorts appealed to foreign skiers? Come along with us to read some of the important points about ski resorts in Iran.

 

 3 reasons for skiing in ski resorts of Iran 

 

Almost all ski resorts of Iran are located at an altitude of more than two thousand meters, which the highest one lies at an altitude of 3850 meters. It means that you will be faced with excellent snow quality for alpine skiing and snowboarding! Some of the ski slopes are available for skiing during six months of the year.

 

From January to March, due to heavy snowfalls in high altitudes, ski resorts of Tehran and many other cities become a paradise for advanced skiers. Skiing on the rammed-snow surface is easier and more comfortable for beginners. So if you're a professional, you can experience an off-piste ski on soft and powdery snow.

 

One of the things that makes skiing attractive to foreign tourists in Iran is the low cost of skiing on well-equipped ski slopes in comparison to other countries in the world. You will really be impressed by leisure facilities of Iran ski resorts. Many ski enthusiasts who come to Iran from other countries for skiing have acknowledged that their experience of skiing in Iran is not less than the one in Alpine ski slopes.
