Bozorgzadegan Amir from Iran, Islamic Republic of writes:
Last winter was the 2nd. season which I could ski in Zagross mountains in Fereydoon shahr, most western part of Isfahan. Koohrang, most western part of Bakhtiari. East Dena, between Yasuj and Kommer in Kohkilooye & Boyer Ahmad. and Sepidan in Fars province.
North-east suburb of Sepidan, there are 2 choices: Pooladkaf ski resort which is private and is going well his plans, and can be compared with the resorts in Alborz arround Tehran.
But, Sepidan, Dena east (Yasuj), Fereydoon shahr, and Koohrang governmental pists are all so primitive with one or two surface lifts and without snow machines, to compact the tracks!
Therefore, slopes grooming are done by skiers. and there won,t be any discussions about other poor side facilities... in one word, nothing !?
The Bakhtiari pist is a little bite better because of the city services in hand ! the city of Koohrang(chalgerd).
Some of the above pists are working half day in the afternoon, others week-ends on thursday & friday only !
But totally, it is more or less better than nothing ! based on Iranian old idiom saying "Half pair of shoes in dessert is booty"!!!...
Hope, the government pay attention more to sport facilities, specially to winter sports, and people,s health, to be able to save and compensate the insurance expences, and his popularity indeed, either by his own or by private investments...
