The tracks of the mountain ski resort Tsahkadzor, which is famous since the Soviet times, are situated on Mount Tegenis (2,821 m). The ski season lasts here from November to April. The snow height reaches 1.4 m. here. The average temperature in winter is -6°C. The rope-way consists of four levels. All four are equipped with Austrian seat elevators.
The new 4-step rope-seat-way is capable of serving from 600 to 1,200 people per hour. The whole length of the ski tracks is 7,200 meters (a total of 50 extremely interesting tracks). The total area of the rope-way is about 800 hectares. The quiet tracks, which are good for beginners, are situated in the central part of the mountain. The so-called “black” tracks with height drops of 350 meters are in the upper part of the mountain. The slopes here are very steep and dangerous for beginners. However a special focus on safety issues at every step will help you fill comfortable and secure at all tracks. From the mountain top you’ll see a wonderful view of Mount Ararat and Lake Sevan. If you overcome the pass, you will get to the neighboring mountain range and access the most extreme ski tracks.
There are an equipment rental point, pizzeria, restaurants and cafe on the bottom as well as on the Teghenis mountain. The cost of a ski-pass for the whole day is approximately €15. Tsahkadzor mountain resorts are well known of high-level service, unique nature and climate.
