Ski Resort

Dizin is located about 70km away from the capital Tehran, in the Alborz mountain range. It is nearby two other main ski resorts of Iran : Shemshak and Darbandsar.

The resort was created during the sixties, under the reign of Mohammad Rezā Shāh. The resort is known for the quality of its snow and for being one of the highest ski resort in the world.

Dizin ski resort is the biggest and the most diversified in Iran. The ski area is located in a large funnel shaped valley.

From the snow front, 4 lifts next to one another serve each sides of the all area – 3x Gondolas + 1x Chairlift. Due to Dizin’s configuration, you can stay above 3000m and ski all day long, without getting bored ! The North exposure of the slopes guarantee great snow quality all along the ski season.

For freeskiing, Dizin is a goldmine ! Besides the great powder field located between the slopes, the resort offers numerous off-pistes trails with perfect view on Mount Damavand.

It is definitely « the place to ski » in Iran. With few investments, a good daily grooming and Dizin would be for sure a 5* international class ski resort !
