In eastern Turkey and especially in the south of the city of Erzurum you will find the Palandoken ski resort. This resort is known for having served as a training camp for many skiing champions. Erzurum is undoubtedly one of the cities where the snow mostly falls in Turkey since there is the presence of snow about 150 days a year. The highest peak of Mount Palandoken is 3,176 meters high, which is relatively impressive and this explains in particular the presence of very long runs with impressive steep descents. You will be able to benefit from 25 kilometers of tracks linked together by 11 lifts. Like the Uludag resort, the skiing period extends from December to April, when snow falls abundantly. Many hotels will allow you to spend an unforgettable stay since there are even 5 star hotels. To get to this ski resort, the simplest way will be to reach Istanbul; from there you will be able to fly straight to Erzurum. Once arrived at the airport, only about ten kilometers will separate you from the resort. The city center of Erzurum is located only 5 km from the station, so you will be able to visit this city easily thanks to the regular shuttle buses. Do not hesitate to buy a souvenir in the many shops of the city.
