Ski resort

Bought by a private investor a few years ago, Darbandsar is one of the few ski resort in Iran to develop. It is located one hour away from Tehran and has some great assets.

Darbandsar ski area is behind Dizin the biggest one in Iran! In few years, the resort took over in term of size and diversity Tochal and Shemshak ski resorts, becoming more and more popular among Iranian skiers.

Darbandsar is now equipped with 2x four seats chairlifts, 1x two seats chairlift, 1x gondola and 2 ski lifts.

Starting from the summit, the main slope is wide, groomed everyday and offers 900m of vertical drop. Half of it is equipped with a few snow makers and lights for night skiing. Away from this main axis, a ski lift serves an other red slope.

Potential for freeskiing is interesting! However, for safety and responsibility reasons, off-piste skiing is not allowed. If you still want to explore around, here are the 2 options :

  1. Negotiate with the ski patrol to get an authorization
  2. Don’t buy any pass and go ski touring

★ Services : Night skiing – Ski and clothing rental – Ski shops – Restaurants – Ski cours – Other activities
