miles) north of Tehran, Iran.
The resort is accessible from Tehran by 2
roads, one is the upper road via Shemshak

to heavy snow) and the other one, the lower
road via Karaj (120 km.).

ft), making it one of the 40 highest ski
resorts in the world.
The ski season in Dizin lasts longer than
European ski resorts (from December to May)
because of its high altitude.

European resorts, making for some excellent
powder. The high number of sunny days makes
it an excellent place for ski holidays.
