Photo: WOW Turkey


Palandöken Mountain; rising in the authentic atmosphere of Erzurum, a historic town in Eastern Anatolia, offers endless skiing pleasure. The center boasts some of the longest (12kms) and most difficult slope-angled ski runs in the world. There are blue (easy), red (intermediate) and black (advanced) ski tracks for you to take your choice some long runs and short queues; it is a favorite with those who take their skiing seriously. Moreover lying at an altitude of 2200 to 3100 meters (10300 ft) with some of the longest and most difficult courses and best snow conditions in Turkey, making it an ideal location for international ski competitions. Another attraction of Palandöken is the almost complete absence of mist, the skier's dread, and this, combined with the best snow quality in Turkey, makes it a favorite haunt of expert skiers. This is the place where you can learn just how much fun skiing can be.

It is only 6 km. from Erzurum along a good road through splendid mountain scenery, which takes 10 minutes by car and Erzurum airport is just 20 minutes away.

The season here is longer than most of its rivals, as long as 6 or 7 months. This center has a sufficient number of suitable skiing slopes for Alpine skiing, ski touring, cross-country and heli-skiing. Guides are available for these activities.

The most suitable skiing conditions are between December 10th and May 10th. The average snowfall is 2- 3 meters in normal winter conditions. The duration of the skiing season is 150 days a year. Due to the climate, the quality of the snow is ''powdery'' all through the season. Palandöken Ski Center is equipped with 3 chairlifts, 1 T bar and a tele-cabin (3 km). Qualified skiing instructors and equipment for hire are available. The center has first aid facilities and a rural clinic. The slopes and medical equipment are under surveillance of experts.

Note: In foggy conditions it is essential not to wander outside the marked slopes
