These mountains give you opportunity to try freeriding with the different level of difficulty and distance. For the extreme skiers we can suggest even heli-skiing. We have chosen and prepared the best paths, the most interesting treks and the experienced, professional guides. You will go to the Southern summit of Aragatz Mountain (3888m) and ski down to Lake Qari (Stone Lake) which is on the attitude of 3200 meters. You will be taken to Fantan village and from there to Gutanasar volcano for steep and interesting downhill. You can choose Geghama mountain range for some long ski-tour with breathtaking views.
