    Overview:

    • Price: 30 $
    • Best Time to Visit: Around Dec 15 until around April 15
    • Working Hours: 8 am in the morning till 4 pm
    • How to get there: As for the transportation to Dizin, there is no direct public transport from IKIA Airport or Tehran to Dizin Ski Resort. The first way, that is also the cheap way, is that you go to the West Bus Terminal near Tehran’s Azadi Tower, catch Tehran-Chalus buses and get off at Dizin Resort exit where you’ll have to hitch a 20-min ride to the resort. The second way, that is the relatively expensive but easy way, is that you book Iran Tourists Transportation taxi services. Their Imam Khomeini airport pickup taxi to Dizin will cost you around 80 USD per car they send you and their taxi service from any hotel in Tehran to Dizin is around 50 USD.

    Dizin ski resort is the biggest and the most diversified in Iran. The ski area is located in a large funnel shaped valley.

    From the snow front, 4 lifts next to one another serve each sides of the all area – 3x Gondolas + 1x Chairlift. Due to Dizin’s configuration, you can stay above 3000m and ski all day long, without getting bored ! The North exposure of the slopes guarantee great snow quality all along the ski season.

    For freeskiing, Dizin is a goldmine ! Besides the great powder field located between the slopes, the resort offers numerous off-pistes trails :

    • To the east, a trail is going behind the mountain back to the small village of Gajereh located on the road to Dizin
    • From the last gondola station, you can reach Darbandsar by  ski touring
    • Heliskiing is possible from Dizin parking lot (Watchout for your carbon footprint…)
    • For freestylers, a small snowpark offers few rails and jumps.

    It is definitely « the place to ski » in Iran. Few investments, a good daily grooming and Dizin would be for sure a 5* international class ski resort !

    Notes & Recommendations:

    There is one very important point that the foreign tourist should bear in mind is that you can't use foreign Visa and Master cards due to the  banking sanctions, so you have to bring along enough cash.

    There are a number of skiing and snowboarding equipment rental shops in both upper and lower parking lots.

    The Childcare facility located in the Chaman Restaurant building offers care services for parents who wish to leave their children in the care of the professional staff.

    For accommodation, several hotels and apartments are located in the resort. You can also find rooms on the road to the resort, in the small village called “Velayat Rud“.

    An other good option : take a room in Shemshak and from there, go skiing one day to Darbandsar, one day to Dizin, one day to Shemshak.

    Patrimonito

    This workshop is designed according to the UNESCO World Heritage Education Programme in order to give young people a chance to voice their concerns and to become involved in the protection of our common cultural and natural heritage. It seeks to encourage and enable tomorrow’s decision-makers to participate in heritage conservation and to respond to the continuing threats facing our World Heritage. The idea of involving young people in World Heritage preservation and promotion came as a response to Article 27 of the Convention Concerning the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage (World Heritage Convention). Furthermore, Patrimonito means 'small heritage' in Spanish and the character represents a young heritage guardian. Patrimonito has been widely adopted as the international mascot of the World Heritage Education Programme.
    Date: 29th December
    Number of trainees: 7
    Duration: 3 hours

    The workshop of "Patrimonito" was held on 29th of December. Participants arrived around 10:30 and they were welcomed by hot chocolate and Persian cup cakes. After a little introduction by trainers and trainees, the process started by making two groups and letting them choose a name for their group, each group was accompanied by a mentor then each group was given some images of world heritage sites in Iran and some descriptions, each group was asked to match images and descriptions, the mentor was guiding them throughout the activity. All trainees were participating actively and trying to remember their experiences about their travels to these places. When they were done with the activity, the mentors started giving the answers and a brief explanation about each site; mentors were using trainees’ ideas and experiences to complete their tasks.

    Shortly after that, the second part started which was a presentation done by two of mentors. The aim of this presentation was to define the value of these world heritage sites and duties of each person as a "Patrimonito", and what happens if there is no "Patrimonito" and nobody cares about our tangible or intangible heritage. In this part trainees started questioning and understanding the whole concept of being a "Patrimonito", they also added their own suggestions on how to protect our heritage and by the end of this part, they were completely aware about their role as a "Patrimonito".
    Now it was a best time to have a short break, during the break trainees were introduced to some of intangible heritages as they were served by traditional food and snacks and even they way of serving was according to traditions and everyone had this opportunity to discuss about intangible heritage while enjoying some traditional food and snacks.
    When the break was done, everyone was asked to choose a heritage either tangible or intangible and they had to introduce their chosen heritage to a tourist by making a postcard using what they have learnt. They were given all of necessary tools such as color papers, color pencils, glue, scissors, images of heritage and a mentor was with them in order to help them completing the task.

    When they were done, they handed out their postcards and with the mentors they sat together and spent a few minutes asking and answering about what they have learnt. Then they were told to say their vows for protecting their heritage and caring about it, the mentor said the vow and the trainees repeated after her and they officially became a "Patrimonito".

    The last but the best part was when they were given the certificates, and they were told that since they are aware of the value of the heritage and they know how to protect it, they are chosen as "Patrimonito" and they should continue their mission by introducing the value of heritage to others. They were granted certificates and labels and the workshop of "Patrimonito" was finished by taking some memorial photos.
