It is 8th of April, 2012 and we have been skiing in Dizin since 7th of November and the snow is far from over. We have great snow to ski on for at least another month or two. I love Dizin. Where can you expect to get 6 months of all natural snow. Unbelievable.......

Hi, This is my idea about Iran, Dizin, skiing and anything that is connected with snow in Iran. If somebody thinks they can help Iran skiing or Dizin slope go to Dizin office ski area and talk about problem or go to Iran federation and talk. Typing text here and thinking that is the way is not correct way......

Dizin the great, the topography and number of slopes using, and the numbered remained to expand and use, are great. If we don't believe it has unique conditions in the world. surely can be claimed in Asia regarding capacity, space varieties, etc... Wherever install a new lift it will be a new piste and reduce the massive queues mostly in week-ends. Other side equipments more or less are already exist, and extension will not need so much investment. Tochal has also high potential with more distinction and advantages on it's north side, where great slopes exist with long time off-season using too, just couple of minutes far from Tehran with reasonable possibilities... Common bases are ready to click expansion for more capacities...

Many years after avalanches in the road between Shemshak and Dizin, ending the life of people. establishing some barriers breaking up slopes into small areas to prevent a massive of snow from building up, and road protection by specially built tunnels, etc. Seems to be necessary and important to act, instead of new wasted plan to check number of passengers with their name, car specifications! to find all have returned finally or probable avalanches have changed the statistics!? What will it solve this kind of checking? to know how many have died again? We have the experience of concerned primitive open- air tunnels in the roads like Chalus and Haraz since long ago. Those are not unavailable structures, compared with the metro tunnel's complexes, if our people lives are important.
