Winter doesn’t mean all cuddling under the blanket, binge watching shows. While summer lovers may think of winter in this way, there are many enjoyable activities that can be done during winter. You can take advantage of cold winter days with exciting and healthy winter sports, and become happier than you might ever have imagined! You may find joy you had never expected from a winter vacation! If you find this idea interesting, read on. Here are some of the best winter sport destinations from Turkey and the world!

 

1. Bursa, Uludağ

Uludağ

Uludağ Ski Center is one of the oldest and largest ski centers in our country. Snow depth goes up three meters in December and the facilities cater to many budgets. Vacationers in Uludağ can also choose to do sports such as snowboarding, big foot skiing, ice skating or snow biking. You can also do helicopter skiing or tour skiing. 

 

2. Bolu, Kartalkaya

Kartalkaya

Bolu-Kartalkaya has one of the best ski centers in our country in terms of snow quality. Ski tracks are between 1850-2200 meters of length. The facilities also include two chair lifts, six ski lifts and three baby tracks. 

 

3. Erzurum, Palandöken

The largest ski center in Turkey, Erzurum-Palandöken also enjoys the second longest and steepest ski track in the world. It’s advantageous compared to other ski centers in that it is only 7km from the city center. Thanks to its uniqueness, this special center frequently hosts international events.

 

4. Kayseri, Erciyes

Erciyes

One of the first places that comes to mind when it comes to winter tourism in Turkey is Erciyes Mountain where skiers ski down from its summit, which is 3917 meters high, at 10% or 50% slopes. The winter sports most frequently enjoyed in the location are snowkiting, heliskiing and ski-passing. 

 

5. Kocaeli, Kartepe

Kartepe

Widely enjoyed by İstanbulites for its close proximity to İstanbul, Kartepe is a center of attraction with its one-of-a-kind environment, tracks, modern cable car and chair lift systems. Also using artificial snow systems, the center is a very convenient destination for those seeking a quick winter escape from İstanbul.

 

6. Bansko, Bulgaria

Bansko

Let’s go beyond Turkey and see what winter sport attractions there are in the region. One of the most well-known ski centers in Bulgaria, Bansko is preferred due to it’s proximity to Turkey. There are very meticulously maintained tracks in the location, which are as long as 75 kilometers in length. It is also very easy to get to and offers very low-budget vacation options compared to other overseas options.

 

7. Hintertux, Austria

Hintertux

Located in Austria, the Hintertux Glacier is always covered with snow, which means it’s always good for skiing! It is also among the very few centers which are preferred in the world due to its unique features. 

 

8. Les 3 Vallées, France

The 3 Valleys, which is a combination of well-known ski centers such as Courchevel, Meribel and Belleville, is one of the largest ski centers in the world with 600 kilometers of tracks. The center is generally preferred by the world’s high society, but the center still caters to a range of budgets. 

 

9. Les 4 Vallées, Switzerland

Just like France’s 3 Valleys, Switzerland’s 4 Valleys combines the ski centers of Verbier, la Tzoumaz, Nendaz, Veysonnaz and Thyon. The center’s mighty tracks place it among the most important centers in the world for speed races. Therefore, it’s a resort that is frequented by advanced skiers.
