Skiing in Tzakhkadzor city
Only 50 kilometers from Yerevan (40 minutes of driving), the Ski Resort of Tsakhkadzor has been a popular winter tourism destination since early 1970s. The town hosted the USSR Olympic team in 1976, before the Olympics in Mexico (Tsakhkadzor is on same altitude as Mexico City).
The population of Tsakhkadzor is only 2000 people. Tsakkhadzor has several historical sights, among them – Kecharis monastery (constructed in 12th century). The town is a “second home” for many famous scientists, writers and artists because of the excellent nature and climate.
People in Tsakhkadzor are friendly and welcoming, with a developed culture for winter tourism. Under a special Government Decree, Tsakhkadzor is being transformed into a world-class ski resort.
Mount Teghenis rises 2,820 meters (9,260 feet) above sea level, vertical drop of the skiable area is 850 meters (2,790 feet).
Most trails are suitable for beginner level skiers and snowboarders. For best snow cover and weather we recommend skiing in February, although you can ski from end of December to early April. There are excellent conditions for off-piste skiing and snowboarding.
