Skiing in Iran; It offers something that many skiers can only dream of

It’s that time of the year when we all start thinking about our next ski holiday. For most people, the key players will be considered: France, Austria, Italy. However, this year, why not experience a completely new and relatively untapped ski destination? Here’s why skiing in Iran should definitely be in consideration for your next mountain adventure.

Varied Resorts

Iran has three main resorts: Dizin, Darbandsar and Shemshak, all of which are within easy driving distance of each other. There’s huge variety among the resorts, from gentle beginners’ areas to very steep and technical slopes, alongside fantastic powder opportunities. Dizin is the highest, with its top lift reaching an incredible 3,600m, guaranteeing great snow. For extreme and advanced skiers, Iran is truly a thrill-filled paradise.

Perfect Powder

Iran offers something that many skiers can only dream of: epic untouched deep powder. While many European resorts do have their fair share of fresh snow and powder runs, this usually gets tracked out and crowded within a few hours. In Iran, the mountains are nowhere near as busy, and as locals tend to stick to the groomed pistes, this powder is yours for the taking. Each year, over 275 inches of snow falls in Dizin, giving you a whole mountain to explore off-piste, with fresh, untouched snow from the first lift to the last.

Value for Money

Skiing in Iran can provide fantastic value for money, with your holiday often coming in cheaper than at many closer European resorts. In the Dizin ski resort, for example, lift tickets are often just $20! Equipment and clothing hire is also very cheap, meaning no need to pay hefty costs to bring your own equipment.

A Truly Unique Experience

How many people can say they have skied in Iran? If you are feeling bored or disenfranchised by the traditional Alpine resorts, this is the ultimate destination for a more exotic adventure on the slopes. The interesting, unique landscapes and skiing terrain will definitely be popular with more advanced skiers, while off the slopes you will experience an amazing one-of-a-kind culture.

Iranian Hospitality

A trip to Iran allows you the opportunity to combine brilliant skiing with the exceptional hospitality that the Persian people are renowned for. You will have the opportunity to sample the local cuisine, learn about Iran’s rich history and experience the unique culture of this beautiful country, all while also enjoying the thrill of the slopes each day. The people here are extremely welcoming and will always go the extra mile to ensure you are happy and comfortable.

I think losing your travel documents, money, and your phone in a foreign country is on the top place in the list of top things you must be scared of when you go abroad. You can google the list of the cities famous for their pickpockets and purse-snatchers. Now, if you’re coming to Iran, hearing the financial news in Iran might worry you a little; and in fact, the tourist centres and crowded areas are no exception in this case. But statistics show that Iran is almost a lot better and safer than other countries in this case. But, only in case you want to travel with peace of mind, keep these points in mind: • You don’t have carry your passport with you to everywhere you go; only a copy of that would suffice. No one usually asks for it. • You will need cash, but you shouldn’t carry all the cash you have with you. • I suggest you to put your eggs in different baskets, I mean split your money and put it in different places so in case you get robbed, you will have some money left. • It’t better to use bags and handbags instead of backpack in crowded places like bazaars; so you can always watch the zippers. • And always keep an eye on your phone!
