Iran is a popular skiing destination in the middle-east, not only for
the local skiers, but also for people from around the world. The things
which have made skiing in Iran popular are the high altitude of its ski
resorts, the long lasting skiing seasons, and the powdery snow that can
be found there.
There are a lot of ski resorts in Iran, many of which have been located in the Albors Mountains, near Tehran. Among those ski resorts around Tehran, Dizin (the largest and the most popular) and Shemshak are considered as the best ones.
