Cool -- Skiing in Iran

Hiking at Valenjak
Tochal, Summer 2003

I just talked to Mr. Shemshaki at the Iran Ski Federation, and it looks like all ski resorts near Tehran have good equipment rental programs. So, there's no need to pack the equipment as we get ready to leave for Iran on vacation starting next week!

Furthermore, it seems that Tochal, a ski resort whose telecabins are accessible by taxi just on the northern edge of Tehran, is already open for the season, and the other resorts are expected to open in the next week or so.

We have been on Tochal, for hikes, many times in the past in the summers.

It'll be great to visit it in winter for skiing.

Great. I was planning on going back to Iran this Christmas and now that I learned skiing here in Canada I definitely want to try skiing there. But let see if my plans go well. Have fun there and take a whole bunch of pictures.
