Accessibility to Dizin
Usually skiers use Chalus road to reach Dizin ski resort. If you used public transportation you would get on Tehran metro to Karaj metro station on line 5 (green line) as your destination which is the nearest metro station to Chalus road.
After that, take a taxi for your final destination and after passing 70 km you have to exit from Chalus road to Velayat Rud Village; then you will find Gajereh Region and finally Dizin Ski Resort.
Next way to go is not routine but it is possible to get on metro line 3 (light blue), then get off on Qaem (Ghaem) metro station and take a taxi or Snapp to the ski area. This second way take about 1 hour and 58 minutes from metro station.
It seems that second option is closer to Tehran than first one; but most of the time it will be closed due to heavy snow as well as Shemshak to Dizin route will be blocked.
Furthermore, second option has traffic congestion because lots of people are traveling especially on weekend to the north cities of Iran.
Moreover, public transport means are available from Tehran to Shemshak such as minibus or bus with Fasham destination, the benefit is more affordable than taxi, so you have to use east terminal.
Note: undoubtedly Sanpp is useful application to visit metropolises in Iran easier and cheaper than other types of taxi but it will work properly if the area is out of Tehran.
