Ski area

Fereydunshahr ski resort will remain one of my best memory in Iran !

The staff takes good care of the slopes and facilities. Slopes are groomed before each opening, ski lifts are well maintained, events are organized and informations are published regularly on Instagram.

From the summit, you can reach numerous off-pistes trails. You can count on extremely motivated locals who’ll surely come and ride with you all of those lines – Awesome !
