I did a little more research and found this site.

Ski Armenia | The Undiscovered Winter Destination

Looks like it's just a fledgling industry. Which has it's pros and cons. They describe it as a "continental" climate which leads me to believe the snow pack is going to be like Colorado or maybe Utah. Overall, for backcountry riding, I'd probably call it scary. Not so sure of the terrain and how well b/c riding can be managed there. Pretty interesting. I am going to try to dig some more as my interest has been piqued by this thread. Don't know if I'll ever go, but it's fun to look at.

@ Sick-Pow Night life....well it depends on the way you like to spend it....clubs, pubs, etc..I know couple of places where you can dance and spend good time.
Food..food is ok. I just don't want to estimate, I may say it's really good but I may be wrong as you might not like it.
The police...hmmm, they won't actually say anything if you behave yourself in a normal way, in short they won't stop you for nothing. And no, they don't speak english, of course there may be exceptions In Armenia majority of people doesn't speak english, but I can't say the same about russian
Snow...the best time for snow approximately starts on december and lasts til mid-march. The snowiest month is january.

@ killclimbz We hope someday you'll come

I think the place looks awesome. If I did an international trip I think it'd be far funner to go to a more out of the way place. Part of the fun is the exploration.

I've always wanted to snowboard at a place that could be confused with the title of Dimmu Borgir's next album.
