Skiing in Iran

Known as a sport only 300 years ago, skiing has been used for hunting and has been one of the most popular means of transportation in the cold and mountainous regions since the Stone Age, and ancient signs of its existence have been discovered in various parts of the world. Iran, which has a four-season climate and offers unique historical attractions to adventurers, also has some of these ancient signs (snow rackets and ski boards covered with animal skins) and even some historians and linguists consider the origin of the word “ski” to be related to the Aryan language and believe that ski has spread from east to west and to Scandinavia!However, modern style skiing was brought to Iran by two groups after World War II. The first group were Germans who came to Iran to build a national railway and by the arrival of winter on the slopes of Alborz, Firoozkooh, Hajiabad and Shemshak, held ski tours, and the second group were Iranians graduated from abroad who trained this sport on the tracks around Tehran (Tellow and Elahieh). 

This amazing country with snow-covered mountains of Alborz and Zagros, high peaks such as Sabalan and Sahand and 13 international ski resorts, is one of the attractive destinations for international skiers in various types of skiing.

It is interesting to note that almost all ski resorts in Iran, which are at an altitude of more than two thousand meters, from January to April have heavy snowfall, which has made the ski resorts of Tehran and many other cities in Iran a paradise for skiing.

Skiing

Skiing is a method of movement with a tool for sliding on different surfaces. Snow skiing is the oldest and the most popular type of skiing, which has led to the emergence of various types of skiing such as grass skiing, desert skiing, and water skiing in different styles. This sport is done widely as a recreational and competitive activity around the world.

Ski Mountaineering (Skimo)

Skimo is an exciting winter sport that involves climbing and descending using uphill skiing or carrying ski equipment considering the ascending gradient, which may be done in the Telemark or Alpine ski styles. The winner will be the first person or group who cross the finish line.

Mountain skiing equipment

In addition to crampons for technical mountain skiing, a large number of technical tools such as ice ax, rope, harness, protecting tools, fixing tools, etc. are used for this type of skiing.

Skiing equipment

Skiing equipment is generally divided into two parts: ski clothing and ski accessories or ski set.

For ski clothing, skiers must choose their clothes, pants, gloves, socks and ski goggles according to their level (beginner to advanced).

Ski sets and accessories such as ski poles, shoes and helmets, and knitted helmets are other items that should be carefully selected according to the challenge facing the skier.

Grass skiing

Grass skiing is a fun sport that is done on mountain slopes. This sport was invented by the Germans who wanted to train skiers before the ski season, and soon attracted the attention of alpine skiers. As this exercise was considerably welcomed, soon this game turned into a competition and sport for men and women.

Iran's first grass ski piste was established in 1994 in Dizin region. With the approval of the International Ski Federation, this track hosts important competitions every year, including the World Cup and the World Championship, and is considered as one of the most important World Cup hosts among the member countries of this sport.

Grass skiing equipment

The equipment for this sport are completely different from the equipment of snow skiing and its boards are shorter and wheeled.

At present, Iranian skiers in the adult and youth sections are among the top 10 in the world and in the rankings of the World Ski Federation.
