Skialpinism and snowboarding in Iran in April 2010 - list or results

We returned from Iran on Monday morning, April 26, 2010. We spent marvelous two weeks with skis and snowboards in Iranian mountains and historical cities as Esfahan and Kashan. Original plans were adapted to the weather that actally wasn´t ideal every day. We skied from several 4000 meter high peaks, and Žrout, Martin and Mišo snowboarder climbed to the summit of Damavand (5671 m). Followingly they skied and snowboarded down from about 5470 meters. We made a short swimming break in Caspian sea. We have also found out that several glaciers living in 2004 are gone (Iran skiing 2004). Sulfuric hot springs were excellent too. In my point of view, whole trip was nice, but participants might have different opinion. The trip was supported by KAMA and Tilak.
