Iran ski tours are divided into two parts, indoor and outdoor which usually include one-day activities to multi-day trips; Multi-day ski tour trips include spending the night in tents, cottages or mountain hotels. Those who want to try Iran ski tours should be physically fit to get the most out of this activity. In fact, there are three basic components to enjoying skiing: physical condition, training, and equipment.
Best time to go on Iran ski tours
Depending on the weather and snow, the timing of Iran ski tours may depend on each person’s skills and preferences in winter or spring.
Spring usually provides amazing snow conditions for Iran ski tours due to the presence of snow (corn), a type of hard-surfaced snow that melts and re-freezes daily. Corn snow is very easy and enjoyable for skiing, although you should choose the best time of day for skiing, preferably morning and late afternoon. In addition to providing a more stable type of snow, spring has longer days and warmer weather, which means longer skiing hours. On the other hand, winter increases the chances of finding powder snow; Cold temperatures, no wind and constant snowfall are the best allies for this fresh and ultra-light snow that makes skiers and snowboards float on it; Of course, riding on deep powder snow is not easy and is only recommended for skilled skiers. Completely different scenery, long silent white valleys and snowy trees on the ski slopes, the magic of winter really transforms the unique mountain environments.
