Dizin is a ski resort north of Tehran. The highest ski lift reaches 3,600 m (11,800 ft), making it one of the 40 highest ski resorts in the world. Popular with rich Iranians form north Tehran on the weekend (Thursday and Friday) but during the week it is barely visited. Most people just take the gondola up and ski to the restaurant in the middle of the slope and spend the day showing off their latest gear while sipping tea. It is probably the most liberal public place in Iran but police still occasionally patrol the slopes. However, girls can be seen with a fair amount of hair showing and young couples are openly chatting away.
