Ski in Persia (Dizin)



It’s absolutely mind-baffling that Iran, this land of peace and security, that is home to the hottest places on earth in its deserts, has almost a dozen of amazing ski resorts. And if one was to come up with a list of the most famous and the popular ones, Dizin Ski Resort, Shemshak Ski Resort, and Darbandsar Ski Resort should be at the top of the list. To get to Dizin Resort, you have to take Chalus i.e. 59 road heading out of Tehran form the northwest of the city. It’ll be a 140 km mountainous ride and it’ll take you around 3 hours to get here. To get to Shemshak or Darbandsar resorts and their hotel i.e Shemshak Hotel, you have to take Babaei Highway and then Lashgarak Road heading out of Tehran from the northeast of the city. It’ll be a 70 km mountainous ride and it’ll take you around an hour and half to get there from the capital. Now, although Dizin is further away from the capital, it’s definitely the best resort in Iran. I have personally been to many ski resorts around the world, but nothing can top my unforgettable skiing experience on the powdery snow of Dizin slopes.
