Owner description: This imposing mountain and former volcano is now a resort area used for skiing and other winter sports. In summer, mountaineers generally attempt climbs from June through September, before the snows arrive at the higher elevations.

Mount Erciyes is spectacular indeed. It has a majesty and the almost year-round snow covering it gives it a certain majesty.

We went to Erciyes for skiing; they have got everything you need to ski there. You can rent anything you'd need, you can have a ski instructor if you like and all for a reasonable price comparing to what you'd have in Uludag, Bursa or Kartalkaya, Bolu. There are restaurants serving you fast-food and traditional food which is very good.
Erciyes ski center is also very easy to reach by car from Kayseri, the roads are very well-maintained and from Kayseri city center it takes only 25 min to get there.
We as a family loved it there, will go back soon.

It wasn't high season so not much to ski on. But talking with one of the resorts owners (an ex-olympian from Calgary winter Olympics no less!) the plans to developo and better link 4 areas around this beautiful volcano. Bound to become part of the skiers itinerary. Incredibly cheap.
