If you were living in any other city, you’d have to wait for a long weekend or an extended holiday period to travel a long distance just to get to a ski resort. That is both time-consuming and costly. However, in Tehran, you only need to get up early in the morning and head to the mountains in the north. You’ll be back home in time to have dinner and sleep in the comfort of your own bed, ready to go to work the next day. This is why Tehran stands out as a ski resort destination.
Tehran’s well-equipped ski resorts have worked up such a reputation that it attracts people from across the country. It may not be an exaggeration, then, to call Tehran the capital of winter sports in Iran. As the mountains are quite high, the ski areas retain their snow quite well. The season usually starts from late November and can stretch all the way through to May, depending on the season.
