Tarik Dareh ski resort is located 10km away from Hamedan. Nestled on the side of Alvand mountain range at 1,900m, Hamedan is one of the coldest city in Iran. There, you can find Ganj Nameh, an ancient inscription carved in granit from 500 BC. The city is also known in Iran for its numerous monuments worth to see. On the road to the ski resort, you will find a theme park with summer sledge track, karting, bungee jumping (12 $ / jump) and a gondola.
The ski area is settled into a 270° valley. The resort is equipped with 1x ski-lift and 1x two seats chairlift, serving both sides of the valley. The 3 slopes have an honorable length. The slope served by the ski lift is used during summer for grass skiing. This ski resort is known as windy!
The potential for ski touring and off-piste skiing is interesting. However, following a huge avalanche a few years ago, the staff is reluctant to let skiers going off the trails – see video here.
