The resort is accessible from Tehran by 2 roads, one is the upper road via Shemshak (71 Km. - This road is sometimes closed due to heavy snow) and the other one, the lower road via Karaj (120 km.).

The highest ski lift reaches 3,600 m (11,800 ft), making it one of the 40 highest ski resorts in the world.
