The huge Dizin ski resort which is located in the north of Tehran in the Alborz mountain range is an under-two-hour drive north from Tehran. Dizin could be the next Alps! Yes, this gorgeous, altitudinous part of the Middle East is the skiing world’s best-kept secret… Let’s review the reasons why you should skip Alps to Dizin:
Dizin is one of the 40 highest ski resorts in the world as the highest ski lift reaches 3,600 m (11,800 ft). Also the base at around 9,000 feet is higher than the summit of many Alpine resorts. The lifts take you to an altitude of almost 12,000 feet above sea level.
The ski season in Dizin lasts longer than European ski resorts (from mid November to mid May) because of its high altitude. Also, the ski activity in this complex is not confined to winter; as it is an important grass-ski centre in summer, too. The first international grass-ski tournament was held at Dizin by the International Ski Federation with participation of some leading countries in skiing in 1996.
Everyone Can Join It:
Dizin, with its dry climate, boasts some of the best powder skiing in the world. Having high quality of the snow, snowboarders can have an exciting experience; it is tolerant and accepting of snowboarders. Don’t forget it has a large variety of ski runs for anyone from beginners to professional skiers, but it should be said that Dizin is geared towards the more experienced skier.
Dizin’s Snow Is So Flaky:
The resort faces north, so the powdery snow quality rivals that of Europe and the Rockies.
Dizin Is a World Star:
This is no off-the-radar resort. Dizin is recognized by the International Ski Federation and hosts its fair share of global competitions.
