Shirbad Ski Resort

Winter is for many the end of the fun part of the year. It is cold, all beaches are closed and activities like mountain climbing and hiking are at best full of hardship and at worst extremely dangerous. Such people spend much of their free time at home under a warm blanket sipping a hot beverage reminiscing about the shiny summer days. But fortunately, not all people share their sentiments about winter. As soon as the first powder falls on the slopes of mountains, skiers and other snow enthusiasts pack their gears and head towards the nearest ski resort to make most of the splendors of winter. In Iran people of the capital are very fortunate as they have access to many spectacular ski resorts. Shemshak and Dizin ski resorts are the most popular winter destinations for the people of Tehran and other cities nearby. They are also widely visited by foreign tourists who find the experience of skiing in Iran both satisfying and incredibly cheap. However, most of them are ignorant of the fact that Iran boasts more than 20 official ski resorts, each known for a unique set of features. These amazing resorts are found in the north, west and east of Iran. The mere presence of a ski resort in Eastern Iran comes as a huge surprise to many people who associate it with the city of Mashhad and the epic historic sites such as Imam Reza Shrine, Goharshad Mosque and the Tomb of Sheikh Bahai. But Mashhad day tours aren’t all about religious and historic attraction within the domain of the city. Those who have traveled across the beautiful countryside around the city know by experience that Mashhad tourist attractions go far beyond a couple of historic spots. Chalidarreh and Shirbad are two extraordinary natural spots around Mashhad. The former is a recreational complex with lots of entertainment facilities and a huge lake. The latter is the first and only ski resort east of the country.

Shirbad ski resort is located 65 kilometers from Mashhad in Binaloud mountains. Mashhad tours functioning in Shirbad usually transfer the skiers in a bus or a van depending on their number. However, those who want to enjoy the delights of the mountains while keeping their privacy, can take a cab from any of Mashhad hotels or hostels to Shirbad. The journey will take about ninety minutes and the taxi fee is between 20 to 25 USD. The fantastic quality of powder and the slopes that extend as long as 1200 meters guaranty a memorable day for the skiers. There are ski rentals for people without the necessary equipment. There are even ski courses for those who want to try their hands at skiing for the first time. Accommodation in the resort is restricted for a couple of dorm rooms but in the near future a big complex will be established that includes lodgings as well as restaurants and coffee shops. Shirbad is also known for its long ski season. Given the altitude of the region and the high level of precipitation, Shirbad ski resort is open to skiers for over five months of the year.
