Skiing In Tehran Iran
Enjoy flourishing your sense of adventure by something different; a wonderful opportunity to go skiing in the Alborz mountains, northern Iran, stretch from the border with Azerbaijan and along the western and southern coast of the Caspian Sea. For most skiers and snowboarders, thinking about the ideal piste normally conjures up thoughts of Alaska’s majestic peaks; while Iran ski areas reach altitudes that overshadows those of even the highest resorts in the Alps. The reasonable price of skiing in Iran calls the lovers of coldness and whiteness to book a trip as soon as possible for an exploration in somewhere really beautiful, intact, new, in the 3 different resorts.
Dizin is the largest among the Iranian ski resorts and the highest ski lift, reaches 3600 meter (11800ft), which makes it one of the 40 highest pistes in the world. There are two big hotels and one modest but warm hostel around Dizin Ski Resort. The most popular and also the most expensive option is Dizin Hotel which is right next to the resort. The second most popular option is Gajereh Hotel in Dizin and despite being located at a distance of around 3 km from the resort, it offers free shuttle service to Dizin slopes every morning, and back to the hotel in the afternoon. The third option is Seven Hostel in Dizin that is the Dizin branch of Seven Hostels Group in Iran. This hostel is located at a distance of 4 km from the resort and just like Gajereh Hotel offers free transportation to the resort and back. There are both dormitories and private rooms at this hostel in Dizin and despite its modest size and room’s price, its TripAdvisor reviews are way more flattering than those of the two big hotels.
Darbandsar, a small private resort, located in the Mountain Seechal at Darbandsar village, 60 km north west of Tehran. One can ski from Dizin to Darbandsar, but one needs to get back by car. This resort will satisfy you a lot, because it is not crowded even during the peak of the ski season.
