Catskiing & Terrain

Each day of the tour will involve cat skiing in an exclusive zone of over 20,00hectares in size outside the ski resort boundaries at Erciyes. Your transport is a Prinoth Husky snowcat with a cabin and seating for 10 people. Two local, experienced guides will accompany the group each day and all avalanche safety equipment is included in the tariff.

The terrain is all alpine, above the tree line, and situated between 2,200m & 2,900m altitude for 700m of skiable vertical by snowcat. Beyond the upper area that the snowcat can reach, several hundred metres of additional vertical can be attained by skinning or boot pack up to as high as 3,700m (depending on snow/weather conditions and the fitness of the group). Runs as long as 4km can be achieved within the cat ski zone, and it is feasible to link into the ski resort trails at the end of the day for even longer descents.

If conditions allow, after a short climb to 3.200m, an extended run of 11km in length, over 1,850m skiable vertical, into the village of Hacilar (at 1,350m altitude) is a tour highlight. Ground transport back to your hotel is included in the tour tariff.

Accommodation & Meals

The base accommodation on the tour is at the Erciyes Hill Hotel located near the Tekir Gate at Erciyes ski resort. The hotel has comfortable, mid-range lodgings, and as with all Turkish hotels, superb food offerings. For an additional fee, guests can request an upgrade to other nearby hotels, including exceptional 5-star hotels like DAS 3917.

All meals are included in the tariff and are an absolute highlight of any visit to Türkiye. Each meal you’ll discover perfect Turkish cuisine, with a range of delicious dishes that are sure to delight your taste buds.

Program

This multi-day tour can be for 3, 4 or 5 days/nights (not including arrival day) or fully customised to be longer. Days skiing on the groomed runs and lifts of the resort, plus day or overnight trips to the nearby and extraordinary region of Cappadocia (only 1½ to 2hr drive away) can be added for a fully customised experience.
