Skiing away from the ayatollahs in Iran
High up in the snowy peaks above Tehran, Iranians enjoy more than winter sports. They enjoy a taste of the Western comforts that have, for all intents and purposes, disappeared from the city below.
The winter hits Iran, and the snowy peaks surrounding Tehran attract thousands of local residents winding their way to Dizin, one of the Islamic Republic's most popular ski resorts. For several hours, everyone will have fun in the snow, forgetting for a while the economic hardships, the looming presidential elections and even the hollow daily threats from the Zionist entity.
