Ski Resorts in TurkeyIn provinces all over Turkey, Ski resorts have been luring domestic as well as international visitors at the time of winter as the country bids to branch out its already stressed tourism industry.

The Palandöken Ski Center based in the eastern province of Erzurum carries on to be a prime attraction for skiing enthusiasts following heavy snowfall in the area.

The center witnessed over 30 centimeters of snowfall and therefore has lured many visitors in the New Year.

Sway Hotel Deputy Manager Ömer Akça informed the state-run Anadolu Agency that his hotel is hundred percent full.

Palandöken is Turkey’s one of the most easily accessible ski resorts, located around 15 kilometers from Erzurum Airport. By plane, it is an hour from the capital Ankara and almost 1.5 hours by from Istanbul and İzmir, Akça said.

Also, Palandöken is distinguished for having one of the longest natural ski tracks in the world.

“One of the most significant characteristics of Palandöken is that it is Turkey’s only ski resort that guarantees snow. Both with investments and artificial snow system made by the government in 2011 and by the private sector, Palandöken provides a ski and snow guarantee for 120 days from Dec. 1 to March 30,” Akça said.

Palandöken offers a chance for night skiing through its world-standard lighting system and other new amenities like ski jumping ramps and shooting ramps for biathlons, he added.

“Most of our hotel guests are from Istanbul, Ankara, İzmir and the Black Sea region. Most of our foreign guests are from Russia, Azerbaijan and Iran but our ski center is largely filled by domestic ski-lovers,” he said.
