Aeroflot is having a winter sale to Tehran. Apparently this is one of the last great untouched ski destinations.

This deal is like the mail in rebate deals. They hope to make money on the number of empty seats on the return trips, that they can resell!!!

Skiing can be dangerous anywhere.

Here is a pic for those who think Iran is a desert.

This is a picture of Tehran, where the main airport is. It doesn't look like you have to go very far to find the ski hills.
