Ski Mountaineering Damavand Iran

Damavand mountain is the highest ski resort in the middle-east and is a popular target for winter sport activities. In good snow condition it is possible to ski the whole mountain, a very impressive 12,000 metres (39,370 feet) of vertical descent. Damawand ski resort is a suitable resort for wild ski touring, off-piste ski tour and snowboarding.

Due to its vicinity to the Caspian Sea Mt Damavand receives a good amount of snowfalls during the year, especially in winter season. South Route is the best route for ski touring, it has a mild slope for ascending up to 5200 meters and after that it gets steeper. Ski mountaineering is much more difficult on other faces. It is possible to ski Damawand in winter and spring.

Damavand resort has no mechanical facility like ski lift, cable cabin, chair lift, gondola or telecabin. Therefore ascend is done on feet (crampons), snowshoes or by ski (skins).

It is the best descend trail of the south face and a good downhill track for wild skitour and freestyle snowboarding to avoid rocky parts, suitable when the valleys are covered with enough ice and snow.

This descend route is located between summit and the Camp3 New Hut, the covered area is  without guideposts, but in good visibility you can find your way easily. Please remember this track is slightly different from ascend trail.
