November 2013:

In the north of IRAN there are the mighty ELBURZ – Mountains, with the Mount “Damavand” which one represents the highest mountain in the Middle East with a height of 5610 m. The Skiing area of DIZIN is a two hours drive by car from Tehran.

In DIZIN there are 3 Gondola Ropeways and some Chairlifts and Ski-lifts up to a height of about 3.600 m. The ski-slopes are north-faced and get regularly a lot of snow from the Caspian Sea.

After the approval inspections of different Ropeways in in the last years, at the objective travel we made the inspection for a “reopening” of a gondola Ropeway after a fire damage.
