Iran Ski Pistes
Skiing in Iran is fantastic. A growing number of Scandinavians can attest to this. Pathfinder Travels was the first Swedish travel promoter in Iran, so join us for our 12th season to Dizin. Heaps of powder, big mountains and plenty of carving space lie ahead.
Skiing in Iran is something for the true skiing enthusiast. The skiing is excellent thanks to the very good snow quality and substantial vertical drop. There are two very large mountain ranges in Iran: the Alborz Mountains, which stretch from east to west, and the Zagros Mountains, which run north to south. The Alborz Mountains contain several peaks over 4,000 m, where the highest peak is the volcano Mount Damavand at 5,671 m. Several ski resorts are located in the Alborz Mountains and the largest, Dizin, is about three hours north of Iran’s capital Tehran.
You will visit interesting historical places and come in contact with Iranian traditions and hospitable people.
The groomed area consists mostly of gentle slopes, but within a reasonable distance from the lifts are several bowls and couloirs for those looking for something more challenging. We will stay around the lift system, where the snow conditions are usually very good. Our experienced trail guide will ensure many long powder runs. Don’t miss the great après-ski, tea and water pipe.
We have arranged ski trips to Iran since 2001 and a trip with Pathfinder Travels has much more than just skiing. You will encounter another culture, history and architecture. You will visit interesting historical places and come in contact with Iranian traditions and hospitable people.
