Our aim is to make skiing love and to train athletes for the ski national team. In this context, it is our greatest desire to make people love skiing in our region, to create a social and sportive activity area for our youth, and to be a step for our children to enter the ski national team. Our work in this direction will continue.
We will not withhold this support until ski lovers learn. And definitely, there will be no charge for this service. I see the interest shown in skiing as gratifying. In short, I say it is from you to teach it from you, ”he said.
