Why You Shouldn’t Miss Skiing in Iran?
Great ski resorts plus plenty of one-of-a-kind attractions make you want to stay in Iran for the entire winter. Iran is not known as a ski destination in the world but it has 13 international ski pistes with a great quality chest-deep snow powder on the foot of its famed mountains. Plus Iran is one of the rarest destinations in the world where you can ski on its mountains and take a sun bath on the warm silver sands of Persian Gulf beaches, on the same day!
Ski resorts of Iran are among the most wonderful places that you can visit on your tour to Iran.
Dizin in Alborz Mountains, north of Tehran established in 1969, is the crown jewel of all ski pistes of Iran. Because of its snow quality, long pistes, and a lengthy ski season (late November to mid-May) Dizin was selected as an international piste by International Ski Federation.
Dizin gets seven meters of snow fall annually with “the snow quality as similar to that of the Rockies” as the legendary back-country skier Chris Anthony said. Summer activities such as grass-skiing and climbing are very popular at Dizin as well. There are two hotels, nineteen cabins, and five restaurants at the village for skiers.
