Well, as we all know, Dizin is amongst the best ski resorts in the world, as far as it's ski season and snow quality. The good thing is it's altitude which is located above the tree line level so you ski free with no hassle at all. Some experts call it the fifth largest ski resort in the world where no snow making machines are available. Please check at tellone.ir to see how our products can make your skiing day more and more fun.

My country is listed as US, but I'm from New Zealand :) Anyhow, I've just had four days at Dizin and it was absolutely great. I happened to be there over No Ruz, the Iranian New Year, so the rates were at the weekend rates (95,000IR rather than IR80,000) which is still peanuts compared to most international rates. The conditions were great. Incredible off-piste riding with soft powder all over. On-piste riding was not as good, due to very infrequent and limited grooming. The pistes rapidly formed rather unpleasant mini moguls, which were annoying to ride on when clouds interrupted visibility. There are no learner slopes at all, so the pistes tend to be crowded with learners even on moderately advanced slopes, so you have to keep an eye out. Excellent size field, with plenty of variety in terrain. All over, the best field I've skied on to date :)

Dizin can also be reached fron Chemshak but in the winter months this much shorter road is often closed. Anyways, the two roads leading to Dizin are in a high avalanche zone. One must avoid driving to these resorts in climates and periods of high risk. The resort itself offers beautiful long sunny runs and perfect dry snow. Mount Damavand can be seen from the summit. Enjoy
