Overview

Darbandsar ski resort is one of the 7 ski resorts around Tehran. It is located on the north face of Mt. Kashoolak (3650m). The base elevation is 2620m and the top elevation is 3150m. There are 2 chairlifts and 3 drag lifts in this resort. This is the second most challenging resort in the region after the one in Shemshak. Like Shemshak there are some nice areas for off-piste skiing. It is also possible to ski from Dizin ski resort to Darbandsar but there is no way back!

When you are on the top, the view is spectacular. Mt Koloonbastak (4160m) and Mt. Sarakchal (4220m) and the ridge in between look majestic. The whole area is a heaven for extreme skiers.
