Dizin, Elbrus Mountains, Iran 1977
When we talk of going skiing, we think of charming little villages in the Alps or perhaps the Rockies.I learned how to ski in Iran when I was 15. Dizin was itttle village in the Elbrus Mountains with quaint little chalets. It could have been anyplace in the European Alps. I spent about 2 1/2 years there (not in the mountains skiing, but in Tehran) with my parents at a time when Iran was a fascinating country with amazing nature and open to the western world.
