Description

This ski line can be accessed from the Mount Teghenis: East Ascent. The trail is mostly covered with soft snow; it is safe and the skiing in the area is a fun and pleasant experience. Our team has traversed this trail several times during the winter, and there are several other ski lines from the different sides of this mountain if you are looking to add some variety. All of them are perfect, with stunning natural views from the top.

While skiing down Teghenis Mountain, which is 2,500m tall, you’ll might come across evidence of wolves and bears. The best time for skiing is in the area is January through April, and the best drink to have on hand is warm tea. Plan on a little over 5 hours for the round-trip adventure of combing the Mount Teghenis: East Ascent with this enjoyable descent.
