Ski Tour in Dizin, Iran

Ski Tour in Dizin, Iran

Why not try something different this year? With one of the longest ski seasons (November through May) and an impressive altutude (at 2700m, the base is higher than the summit of most Alpine resorts), Dizin is inviting you to a new adventure: Ski, ski, ski! Iran!

Iran is much safer than many Westerners might believe. Most people are genuinely friendly and interested in you and your country, so leave aside your preconceptions and come with an open mind!

Situated in the heart of Iran, only 3 hours drive from Tehran, this charming setting is perfect for those who prefer less commercialized places but want everything at their doorstep. Dizin Ski Resort is situated on the northern mountains of Tehran. The lowest point of the region is 2650 m and the highest point is 3600 meters above sea level, max. 850 meters vertical drop of the pists. Low traffic and surrounded by majestic mountains this area is excellent for a real getaway.

♦ Dizin Ski Resort - The Dizin ski complex is the first ski and winter sport resort in Iran which has been officially recognized and granted by the International Ski Federation for its capability in administrating official and international competitions.
♦ Ski facilities - This ski resort includes three cable cars, two ski lifts, seven dish teleskis and one hammer teleski. Wide slopes are ideal for beginners, families and intermediates. For the experts there are black run treats and exciting, splendid off-piste opportunities. You can also ski all the way back to the village and to your hotel.
♦ Offpiste skiing - Dizin is among the most exciting offpiste destinations. Even though one should always beware the risk for avalanches, it is possible to hire experienced and reliable offpiste guides (most of them trained in Europe). The skipatrols are also well-traied and reliable.

Good to know

- Dizin snow forecast:
- When booking your trip, it is a good idea to avoid Thursdays and Fridays as these are the days when the resort is busiest - the rest of the week the resort is pretty calm and much more enjoyable.
- Ski facilities closed on 14 January, 22 January and 24 January
- Even though it is possible to rent ski equipment on spot, it is recommended to bring at least your own ski/sowboard boots. (Turkish Airlines allow 30 kg luggage. If you wish to bring your own ski, you need to register this desire in advance and pay EUR60 at check-in).
- It is forbidden to import in Iran alcohol drinks and pork meat.
- Bring cash in EUR or USD as credit cards cannot be used.
- Clothing: Men should wear short- or long-sleeved shirts and long trousers. For women the aim is not to draw attention to the shape of your body nor to have any flesh showing except your face and hands. A headscarf is compulsory - take lots, the more colourful and cheerful the better. The perfect outfit would be a loose, long-sleeved shirt worn over jeans/cotton trousers.

Fantastic trip with Penguin Travel! Loved all the sights we got to see in Saudi Arabia. Abdulaziz and Lyuben were very helpful, kind, and knowledgeable. Would highly recommend for solo and group travelers, especially those wanting an "off the beaten path" experience. Can't wait to travel with Penguin again!
