Before traveling to Iran, what travelers usually imagine is that all they can do in this destination is visiting ancient and cultural attractions and wandering in desert lands under hot sunlight. But the truth is that for almost every traveler with any character, Iran has something to offer. Although it might seem shocking at first, Iran is even a special destination for ski and snowboard lovers!

Dizin Ski Resort

Located 70 kilometers away from Tehran in the Alborz Mountain Range, Dizin Ski Resort is the most important resort in the Middle East and the first resort in Iran which was authorized by the International Ski Federation for hosting official ski competitions and titled as an international ski resort, because of its standard slopes, standard length and good facilities.

With 75 kilometers skiing route, the lowest spot of this resort is 2650 meters above the sea level, while the altitude of the highest spot is 3600 meters above the sea level. This resort has 23 different ski runs (piste) on different routes like valleys, peaks, with gondolas, chairlifts, etc. This resort is also available for grass skiing in Iran during summer, when there is no snow.

Apart from good and standard facilities and a fresh fluffy and powdery snow, what makes ski and snowboard lovers attracted to ski in Iran is the price of skiing in Iran, which is much cheaper than skiing in other resorts even the ones in their own country. It also gives them the opportunity to visit the cultural attractions of Iran in other cities like Isfahan, Yazd, Shiraz, and even experience other adventurous activities like desert safari in central Iran, diving in Qeshm Island or surfing in Chabahar Port where the weather is pleasantly warm and mild in the middle of winter. The best time of year for traveling to Dizin and enjoying a super fun skiing week is from late November to late April.
