    Excellent information you’ve got on this page, Espen – thank you.

    Just got back from Dizin today and wanted to add, that when arriving to Dizin from west, there’s a small village about five km from Dizin and there’s a ski rental by the road. Price per snowboard per day was 180k and with some help from locals we managed to bargain it to 300k for 2 boards. Quality wasn’t exactly very good, but seemed about the same that you get in ski shops near parking area in Dizin. There they asked 300k for a single “regular” snowboard and 500k for a single “high quality” (looked brand new) snowboard. It was weekend today, so higher prices might be because of that. Anyway, if you have arrive by car, you might want to rent from this village.

    Second thing is that I heard Dizin resort was closed for a couple and just reopened, I believe day before yesterday. The reason wast hat the eastern road was closed by a local government, due to safety reasons (there was an avalanche about month ago – http://english.farsnews.com/newstext.php?nn=8811160746). Closing the road reduced the number of visitors from Tehran and owners of the ski resort decided to shut down the whole thing. I guess they fought over it for a couple of days and decided to reopen. It was first time form me in Dizin so I don’t have comparison, but it didn’t seem crowded at all and plenty of “untouched” slopes so the story might be true and Eastern road closed.

    Thirdly, I saw some private minibuses in Dizin, going back to Tehran and Karaj and those seemed like you can just step in and get a lift. So if you’re adventurous type, I’d suggest you try those first before ordering a taxi. Also people on the slopes seemed quite friendly (and some speaking English) so I’d imagine if you just have some small talk while in the condola and asked for a ride, they’d give you a lift to Tehran

    Hi Madis,
    The road was closed was closed by the police the day before we arrived. I also thought that it must have been a safety issue because of an avalanche or snow on the road. But turns out that because it was a mourning holiday, the poilice closed the road to Dizin because they didn’t want people having fun on the ski slopes when they should be at home or at the mosque praying.
    If you think that is strange, how about this… Our children got into trouble for using the playground equipment in Tehran on the same mourning day.

  • Madis

    I was in Dizin yesterday, eastern road is also open now. No fresh snow and lot of it had also melted in a week so slopes were quite icy – not the best conditions for snowboarding. Still nice, though.

    I used the minibus service that Mr. Beygi offers (see the transportation page), price was 120 000, but well worth the money. You do meet local guys in the bus, which is good and Beygi can help you rent sky/snowboard so that you don’t have to pay an extra “tourist tax” ;) . It seems everyone knows him on the mountain. He likes to speak a LOT, but he does not seem too confident in English so he mainly stick to practical stuff with me :)

    Hey,
    I’m from Canada and am going to Dizin this winter. I’ve been there before about 10 years ago, but haven’t been there since, so thanks for the new information.
    FYI, Chalets are so much more fun than the hotels. We used to go there with 2-3 families and it was amazing experience.
    I personally think Dizin is even better than Ski resorts such as Mont Tremblant In Easter Canada. The runs are longer and of course the weather is not as harsh (-40 C to -50 C in Tremblant) while here is so much more snow. The only downturn is the lineups actually…. Everyone who goes there will definitely enjoy it.

    I’m planning a ski trip in December 2011 the week before xmas, but you could have probably heard my heart break after I’d read this thread and find that Dizin & Shemshak didn’t open until Januaury this season.
    Would it be too much of a gamble to make the trip in December, considering my airfares won’t be cheap (about $1,200)?

    Also, I’m living in Singapore so I don’t have much outside shorts & short sleeves in my wardrobe. Is it possible to hire clothes for skiing at the ski rental shops (like bib & brace)?

    Thanks for posting your help here, or email direct: piarts_ontour@yahoo.com

  • http://inspired.no Espen Antonsen

    Scott: Iran is a great place to visit and I really recommend going there even though it would be nicer to visit in spring or early autumn. If you are going just for skiing I would personally not take the chance of going in December. It might be open but also likely that it will be not. Maybe check the conditions for skiing in north India instead?

    I live in Kuala Lumpur and a tip for you in Singapore is to take the bus up here to KL and then fly Air Asia direct to Tehran. Would likely be a lot cheaper than flying from SIN.

    I’ll probably be there in February 2012/March 2012. I’m an Iranian born Canadian, 22 year old male snowboarder. Let me know if anyone wants to meet there and enjoy a day on the slopes. I am not sure if I will be actually staying on the resort but I do know that I’m ready to show some Iranians how a Canadian from the rocky mountain snowboards ;)

    Most airlines allow special equipment such as ski outside the normal baggage allowance. Might be extra but check with the airline you are flying with. There is ski rental in Dizin though.

    What taxis are that expensive? Is there any alternative like a bus?

  • http://twitter.com/Espen_Antonsen Espen Antonsen

    Only hotels. There are cabins you can rent too but you have to ask around. Maybe someone in the village has a spare room they want to rent out.

  • http://twitter.com/Espen_Antonsen Espen Antonsen

    It is a long drive for a taxi. There is a minibus. For a bus see http://dizinsnowboard.com/cheapest-way-to-get-to-dizin-from-tehran-with-public-transport-minibus-4/
