The resort is located near Sepidan, a leisure place for wealthy families from Shiraz. Shirazian come there for skiing or cooling off during the hot summer.
Ski season in Pooladkaf
usually starts from first of December to late March and sometimes this period extends to April. Due to considerable precipitation of this region (about 1000 mm in less than 6 months), in some years there is 3 meters of snow at the bottom of resort. Finally, the interesting point about this resort is strong sunshine even in January. Even-though Pooladkaf stays relatively small, it offers a large choice of activities : skiing, skidoo, restaurant, Skiing Gears, horse riding, après-ski, hotel, mountain bike, hiking…
Pooladkaf’s ski area is the fifth biggest in Iran, after Dizin, Shemshak, Darbandsar and Tochal ski resorts.
A gondola (4 seats / cabin) + 1 ski lift, are the two lifts serving the only red slope of the resort. The ski lift is powerful and gives a quick access to the steepest part of the slope. There are numerous off-piste trails with changing terrains, making runs really fun. The risk of avalanche is limited. Potential for ski touring in this region is big and especially in the “Dena Protected Area“.
★ Services : Skis rental (11 $ / day) – Restaurants – Hotel – Other activities
From Shiraz a small road is reaching the ski resort of Pooladkaf. To my knowledge there isn’t any public transportation. However Shirazian people come skiing for the day to Pooladkaf, therefore hitchhiking is a good option.
From Yasuj, hitchhiking will be hard as the traffic is light. Better take a taxi – about 15 to 20 $ for one way.
