Description of the trail In the north of Aragatsotn marz, we offer you an amazing mountain ski trail with indescribable beautiful mountain views. This route will start from Sipan village, the height of which is 2100 m. Skiing a few hundred meters away from that village will be approached to the mountain. The route is marked up to 2600 m above the Mount Kamar, as the crown masses of the hill were open during that time, due to little snow, but the feeling of pleasant landing doesn’t suffer from it. If the snow is sufficiently abundant and covered with stones, we recommend continuing to the peak, 2738 m. During the landing, it will be on the four-mile Mount Aragats in front of you, showing the northern rocky wall in the foreground. In the evening, on the way back to the sunset, the winter Aragatsotn marz, the Pambak sierra and roads are a real sightseeing destination for visitors and guests.
