Tochal Ski Resort

A unique blend of Alpine chic and traditional Persia, Tochal Ski Resort in Tehran provides the perfect break from the bustle of chaotic Tehran. The Tochal project was started in 1974 and the resort was ready to be used in 1978, just a year before the Islamic revolution in Iran. Tochal Ski Resort is very popular even among the locals. Many Tehrani fashionable young people spend their weekends at this resort to ski, socialize or do both. There are clear factors that have contributed to this ski resort’s popularity in Iran, namely its location, its facilities, and its low costs.

Tochal Ski Resort; Location

Tochal Ski Resort’s location is very convenient. It is accessed from a wealthy district to the north of the city and from there a Gondola line – the longest in the world – takes the skiers on a 7-km trip into the snowy Alborz Mountains. The sprawling city of Tehran remains in view as the Gondola reaches a peak altitude of 3740m where Tochal Ski Resort is located. If you take accommodation in the north of Tehran during your stay in this city, you’ll be able to get a 15-min taxi ride and get to the base station of the Gondola lift. At the final station, the full beauty of the Alborz unfolds to East and West beneath a vibrant ski resort.
