Arrival, Meet and Greet at Zvartnots International Airport.
Welcome to Yerevan, the capital city of Armenia. Our tour leader will greet you at the airport and help you with all the ground handling services.
Transfer to Tsaghkadzor Resort. After a welcome briefing meeting with the tour leader, you will check in to your hotel.
Those who need to rent skiing equipment will visit a local rental shop to get the necessary gear.
For the rest of the day you'll have free time on your own to explore the resort or go out for a nice dinner at a local restaurant for your first encounter with Armenian cuisine or just recap from your travel and get a good night’s sleep before tomorrow’s ski adventure.
It’s important that you attend the welcome meeting, as we will be distributing details and next of kin information such as brochures with useful info about the resort and the ropeway, maps, places to eat and things to do around.
Our best piece of skiing equipment advice is a simple one – Bring your own gear with you! The equipment rental places are available at the resort; however, the experienced skiers will know that in order to get the best skiing experience, you need to have your own gear and accessories with you.
In case you need to rent on piste equipment, based on your prior equipment rental request, we will make them ready for you in advance; you just need to try them on. To make things more convenient for you, the equipment you chose will be stored and reserved for you at the rental shop storage room, under your name during your entire trip. The shop is right at the slopes. Just pass by the shop in the morning, put them on and take the lift to the slopes. You are free to choose other equipment on spot, if necessary. You can also swap them with another equipment, if during skiing you realize they are not the best fit for you. Your request might not be available when it comes to specific equipment brands/names and sizes, therefore once again we recommend to bring your own gear.
The weather in Armenia and at the resort is cold at this time of the year, make sure you are well prepared and have your proper skiing outfit, thermal clothes and base layers and all the necessary accessories.
The slopes are calling! Transfer to ropeway for on piste skiing. We have a beautiful day ahead for conquering the wintery summits of the Teghenis Mountains (2851m). Leave the warmth of your beds for an amazing adventure accompanied by unspoiled natural landscapes, crispy fresh mountain air, glistening powder snow, and peace.
Free time. Explore the city, there are plenty of good restaurants, markets and shops for essentials or perhaps join your new travel companions for an optional group dinner. Use your hotel's luxurious facilities -hammam, indoor pool, sauna, gym, spa and much more.
