Useful for Mountaineering, Ski and Snowboard
27 November 2010 Posted by Sherppa
There is a descend (return) route on the south face of Damavand Mountain called Shen Ski (soft type of soil), it is a comfortable way to go down especially for tierd mountaineers who return from a tough climb, also it is the best down hill track for wild ski mountaineering and freestyle snowboarding.
This descend route is located between Damavand summit 5671m and the Camp3 New Hut 4250m, the covered area has a mild climbing slope without rocks and guideposts, it is the easiest return way of the mountain, in good visibility you can find your way back easily.
This GPS track file is ideal for:
A- Descend in Summer
Climbers who have summited successfully and prefer an easier way down to avoid rocky parts, suitable when the valleys are free from ice and snow and the the ground is covered with soft sands.
Please remember this track is slightly different from ascend route and is not recommended for climbing up! It is suitable for descend only. (The green line on the following map shows the ascend track).
B- Ski Mountaineering and Snowboarding in Winter
The best track for Ski Mountaineers and snowboard lovers to enjoy 3000 meters long distance and 1400 meters altitude downhill ski in snow during the winter and go down from the peak to campsite3.
