Khoshakoo ski resort (pronounced Roshakoo) is located in North-West Iran, 10km from the Turkish border. The nearest city is Urmia, called “Le Petit Paris” and known worldwide for its salted lake – 2 posts to learn more about this lake: Wikipedia / The Guardian.
The resort is equipped with 2x ski-lifts and 2x slopes – One green and one red slopes. The first ski-lift serves the green slope and gives access to the second ski-lift. Depending on snow conditions, you can from the summit ski the red “ungroomed” slope or go off-piste. Khoshakoo is a famous spot for paragliders as well. The potential for ski touring is interesting.
The resort is a famous spot for “Tubing”, using old inner trucks’ tubes. Surely one of the most dangerous sport on earth.
