Crystal snow in Turkey’s Cıbıltepe dazzles skiers
KARS – Anadolu Agency
Hotels in and around the ski center hosted 10,000 tourists last year while 60,000 people benefited from skiing facilities in Cıbıltepe. There are six hotels with a bed capacity of 2,000 and many rental apartments in the area.
The ski center, which is around 54 kilometers from the center of Kars and two kilometers from the center of Sarıkamış district, is leaving everyone dazzled with its snow quality and magnificent nature.
It is located on a high plateau covered with Scotch pine forests and is rated as one of the most important centers of winter sports and winter tourism.
Sarıkamış particularly attracts skiers due to its highly-suitable environment, especially for “alp and northern discipline” skiing applications, “ski safari” and “slip-on trips,” as well as with its runway for snowboarding.
It is possible to ski about five kilometers without interruption at the ski center.
