Sarıkamış, “Turkey’s Insburg”, which has got one of the longest skiing pastes of the World, is 50 km from Kars Airport. When you depart from 08:30 with Turkish Airlines from Istanbul, at 10:30 you can wear your skis and start skiing on one of the most beautiful pastes of the World.
One of the most important characteristics that distinguishes Sarıkamış from other pastes is the type of the snow and its natural beauties. The crystal snow, which is extremely convenient for skiing sport and found only in the Alps, is found in Sarıkamış. Although the most part of the year is sunny, the snow remains the same as the first day and gives the skiers the pleasure of skiing in safety. We say ‘in safety’ because there is no risk of avalanche in Sarıkamış.
Since the pastes are surrounded by the Scotch pine Forests, they are also guarded against the wind. Sarıçam Skiing Facilities, which is located very closed to Hotel Çamkar, is the largest skiing facility of Turkey and the third of the World with its computer equipped telesiege system with the capacity of 2400 pax per hour.
In Cıbıltepe, which has the altitude of 2700 m, there are 2 laps with 5 pastes with suitable difficulty levels for all skiers. First lap is 2400 m long and has an ideal slope for the beginners. There are 4 pastes in the second lap which has the length of 2200 m. When you complete the piste of 7 km surrounded by Scotch pine forests, you will have completed the longest piste of Turkey.
