Will Turkey's Artvin Davos!
Atabarı Ski Center is not actually an alternative ski resort, but every time it is stated that there is no alternative ski resort but because of lack of investment, this rightful reputation has not been delivered to Atabari Ski Center! The ski-runway will be north-facing, snow-resistant and long-lasting, and will be finished with a thousand 800-meter runways.
The exact location of Atabarı Ski Center, which is located at an altitude of 16 meters, slightly higher than the Kafkasör Plateau, 750 kilometers from the center of Artvin; Mersivan Region, located above the Caucasus, is described as the northern slope of the foothills of Keçi Mountain. From now on, about a year later, the summit of this center, which can be called the roof of Turkey, can now be reached by chairlift.
When the landscape is reached, the landscape can be brought back again and again. These views wealth and richness of image, if the investments are completed and will be shared with the whole world and the whole of Turkey. Atabarı Ski Center continues to be on its way to becoming an important ski resort that will change the fate of Artvin and even the Eastern Black Sea.
Already the first nail to Atabarı Ski Center, Artvin Mayor Dr. Emin Özgün also does not use the following expressions by chance: “As you know, Artvin will come to the place it deserves, now sea tourism has lagged behind nature tourism. We say Artvin will be Turkey's Davos.”
Unfortunately No Electricity

Although there is a lot of interest in the Ski Center, the 24 watch generator is being operated at the ski lift and resting facility. Atabarı Ski Center, which is on the way to become the most important center of Artvin, is deprived of energy and the most important detail that should be paid attention to the managers of the province.
