Shemshak Ski Resort History:

Northern Tehran has been always a favorite place for the locals due to its pleasant cold weather, specifically the refreshing Shemshak weather. People gradually started settling in the heights and mountains of Shemshak and turned it into a touristic city. Shemshak Ski Resort & Complex was constructed in 1948 by a group of German engineers to make the city even more touristic. The resort was officially started working in 1959 after the installation of its first chairlift. After some renovations in 1996, Shemshak Ski Resort was recognized as an international ski resort by the International Ski Federation. The site is hosting international winter sports every year as well.

Shemshak Ski Resort, with its quick steep and mogul runs, is more suitable for advanced skiers who want to experience an exciting winter sport. There is a night piste as well in the resort with lighting facilities.

The Structure and the Pistes:

Shemshak weather is normally wintry from early December to late March. The opening time of Shemshak Ski Resort slopes depends on the first snow in the area. You might have seen four pistes on some Shemshak ski resort maps. One of the slopes is designed for preliminary training, while the chief two pistes, Aftab and Mahtab, are hosting more professional kiers. Mahtab is the longest slope with 1950 meters long. The last one that is 950 meters long is called Shab (means night in Persian) and is the first night piste in the country equipped with excellent lighting facilities.

Both Shemshak & Dizin ski resorts are hosting professional and non-professional skiers alike. But please note that comparing to the Dizin ski resort, which is originally designed for amateur, intermediate and advanced skiers, Shemshak Ski resort is for more professionals due to the slopes that are quick steep and the runs, which are mostly mogul runs. The slopes lie at an altitude of 2,550 meters to 3050 meters above sea level. There are also two chairlifts, three surface lifts, and two hammer tele-skis that start from Shemshak ski resort hotel and stops at the mountaintop.
