Ski Touring in Armenia

18 hrs Yerevan to Yorkshire, via Moscow and London… a few pics from this weeks excellent reccy trip, ski touring in Armenia!

After a week I’ve totally fallen in love with this ancient and diverse country: skiing here is as much about the culture, scenery and history as it is the touring – 1000 year old monasteries pepper the countryside, set amidst haunting landscapes made of extinct volcanoes and the constant backdrop of Mount Ararat (where Noah landed the Ark!)

Then by total contrast, you’ll be driving around in a Mad Max movie set made of former Soviet Era factories, ancient trucks and Ladas, before wandering through thoroughly modern Yerevan, with it’s thriving cafe culture, museums and galleries.

Needless to say, we’ll be running a ski touring trip here next winter – so keep an eye out for the 2020 program in the spring
