Ski facilities are one of the most popular places preferred by students and ski lovers throughout the winter. Students mostly prefer facilities such as Uludağ or Kartepe because of their festival and budget opportunities. During the winter season, these facilities are so crowded that you may have to wait in line for the cable car for minutes. If you are looking for a quieter and more affordable ski resort, this article will be very useful for you. Because we have researched the most suitable and quality ski resorts for both students and families. We have compiled the non-crowded ski resorts you can go to this winter. So let's get started.
Hazarbaba Ski Resort
Hazarbaba is a ski resort in the Sivrice district of Elazig. It has 8 ski tracks. These tracks are suitable for both amateurs and professionals, but some tracks can be dangerous for beginners. Snow thickness varies between 1-3 meters.
In terms of accommodation, the Elazig Mavi Göl hotel, located within the facility, may be the best option. You can carry out transactions such as material rental and reservation in the hotel. If you want to rent equipment or take private lessons for skiing, you have to pay for these two options within the facility.
Saklıkent Ski Center
Saklıkent is a ski resort built on the Beydağları located in the west of Antalya. You may be confused when you hear Antalya and skiing at the same time, but snowfall dominates in Antalya, albeit for a few months, and a snow thickness of up to 4 meters occurs.
Saklıkent ski resorts have set their motto as "Ski in the Daytime, Sea in the Afternoon" because the resort is 1 hour away from the sea. Thus, you can enjoy both the snow and the sun at the same time in Antalya. If you want to swim in the sea but miss the summer, you can throw yourself into the warm waters of Antalya after your morning skiing. What a luxury to experience both summer and winter in one day, isn't it?
Bozdağ Ski Resort
Bozdag is a small ski resort located only 110 km from the center of Izmir. It is considered as the Uludag facility of the Aegean. The ski resort, which provides service in December and March, was built in 1929 for Mustafa Kemal Atatürk to rest. During the winter, the snow thickness at the facility reaches up to 120 centimeters and it has 3 runways. Located right next to the hotel, Bozdag Ski Center Hotel is operated by Balçova Termal. You can rent your ski equipment from the hotel at reasonable prices, and experience the nightlife and beautiful pubs of Izmir in the evenings.
We seem to sense your amazement at the ski resort in Antalya here as well. Yes, when snow and skiing are mentioned, Erzurum, Kars, Bursa and Kocaeli come to mind first, but how would you like to go out of this pattern? In famous ski resorts such as Palandoken, Sarikamis, Uludag and Kartepe, prices are higher and more crowded. But come see that we have such opportunities in cities such as Antalya and İzmir. Although it is generally less known, the services here are also of very high quality. If you think like us, you can come to Bozdağ Ski Center.
Erciyes Ski Resort
Erciyes is one of the largest ski resorts in Turkey, it has 34 ski tracks. Of these pistes, 36% are for amateurs, 42 for intermediate skiers, and 22% for professionals. In addition to skiing, you can also try new generation activities such as Snow Kite (Kite Ski) and Heliski (Helicopter Ski) and socialize with people. Erciyes Ski Resort has many accommodation options for ski lovers. You can search for the most suitable hotel according to your preference and budget and stay where you find it.
