Driving time is about 2 hours from the capital city. The resort has a reputation for excellent snow often like power, high altitude (one of the world's 40 highest ski centres) and the north facing slopes. Snow depths average 1.5 meters (5 feet) at the base and double that on the upper slopes.
Dizin climatologically condition offers the longest time for skiing normally begins in (Mid Dec. -End Mar.) Because of the expansion of the region.
Most travelers visiting Iran and Tehran during the winter and would like to go to Alborz Mountain for skiing.
It would be a good idea to escape Tehran and relax in the villages nearby for a couple of days skiing. From the city, less than one hour drive will get you to the village we have chosen for your accomodation. In this village you will experience fresh weather and calmness forgetting the pollution and noise of Tehran. The altitude of the village is around 2000 m from the sea level and is covered by mountains of Central Elburz.
The untouched landscape, river, sounds and colors of nature in a non-touristic area makes good memories for ski your holiday. Dpending which ski resort you would like to go, from the village it takes between 30 to 45 minute to the ski resorts.
We can perform this tour in the winter and beginning of the spring. The season for Dizin Ski resort start generally around mid December and will finish end of March. The season for Shemshak and Darband Sar is shorter and depending the volume of the snow for the year.
Although temperature in winter is cold but has its own beauties. The village and mountainous areas are so quiet, suitable for those who wish to escape from Tehran for a couple of days and experience a short hiking in Central Elburz.
