Mt Erciyes is good for skiing when it is sunny and less wind. Prices are reasonable. There are flights from Izmir and Istanbul. Driving time from Ankara is about 4.5 h. Good ski rental facilities and lifts exist. Weekends may get crowded.

Very beautiful place and excellent for those who are trying skiing for the first time. And if someone is not interested in skiing then you can enjoy sledge too. We tried both, it was fun. Rentals are affordable.
