High-quality powder snow

The quality of snow is one of the most important factors in ski; so, the skiers are always looking for the best ones in the world. Moisture and density are two factors influencing the quality of snow. Due to the geographical location of some parts of the Zagros, the region is covered with snow for more than half of the year, that’s why we call this region the “Alps of Iran”. The high level of humidity in this area has also helped to create good-quality snow for skiing, so, there is fresh snow almost half of the year!

Wonderful natural sceneries

Would you prefer to ski in a virgin region or a crowded one? I guess adventurers go for the first one!
In the Zagros region, you can find yourself alone in nature and enjoy your ski without any overcrowding but it doesn’t mean that the ski resorts are not good and not equipped. There are lots of great ski resorts like Pooladkaf in Zagros; the second-largest and international ski slope in Iran, Chelgard Ski Resort (Kurang); one of the best ones in Iran, Tarik Darreh ski resort and others, and you can find more ski resorts in Iran.
Being far away from large cities like Tehran, you can see fewer people and more space to enjoy skiing, so, I recommend absolutely Zagros ski resort for skiers who are eager to ski not only to enjoy but also to watch wonderful natural sceneries; Zagros mountains are located in one of the most astonishing regions.

Local people and their lifestyle

Most of us are tired of modern life, in the hustle and bustle of the cities. so, it’s time for nature and experience living with local people and enjoying their simple and lovely life. Ski-in Zagros allows us to experience the meaningful silence of nature far from technology. Staying in local houses and having meals with the locals to know about their lifestyle would recall us that we are too involved in technology and materialistic lifestyle!
