Hugging the peak of Mt Tochal, and reached via the Tochal Telecabin, this is the easiest ski resort to access from Tehran. The location at 3500m is spectacular, but the gentle slopes, accessed via a couple of chair and drag lifts, are not so long and mostly for beginners and intermediate skiers and snowboarders.

If there's sufficient snow it's possible to ski down from the top Station 7 of the telecabin to Station 5.

Ski passes are sold at Station 1, where it's best to rent any equipment you need, too (there is very limited equipment available at the resort). If you book to stay at the comfortable Tochal Hotel, your return telecabin journey and two days of skiing at the summit are covered. There's also a self-serve cafe at the hotel as well as another cafe at Station 5.
