Shemshak & Darbansar

Previous Next
The neighbouring ski resorts of Shemshak and Darbansar, in a steep-sided valley around 50km north of Tehran, both boast slopes that will get hardcore skiers and snowboarders most excited. Outside of the ski season (late December to March) the villages here are also a popular quick escape from the pollution, heat and stress of Tehran.

In winter, on the way to Shemshak, look out for the frozen waterfall at Meygoon, where it's possible to go ice-climbing.
Darbansar Ski Resort

At an elevation of 2650m, rising to 3150m, Darbansar is privately run and more modern than nearby Shemshak. The runs are moderately challenging and there's plenty of scope for off-piste skiing, including across to Dizin on the other side of Mt Kashoolak. There's also a ski school and night skiing here.

Shemshak Ski Resort

Government-operated Shemshak, Iran's second-largest ski field after Dizin, offers challenging terrain with mainly black-rated runs. Vertical descents are about 500m (some of it at an adrenalin-inducing 45-degree angle) and there are plenty of moguls. There are no gondolas, just two chair lifts and four drag lifts to get you up its two main slopes.
