“Our project about the hotel is about to be completed”
Sivas Governor Zübeyir Kemelek, in his statement to AA correspondent, reminding that the teleskies and ski lifts required for the infrastructure of Yıldız Mountain Winter Sports and Tourism Center were tendered, “We have made the tender for 18 million 800 thousand liras. This price may change if some fabrications are increased or decreased. About 20 million lira is being invested for the infrastructure of the ski resort. ”
Stating that these works are not enough for the facility, Kemelek said, “Outgoing people should benefit from it. We will meet the need for bed and daily food and drink for those who go. It will be rental material for those who do not know skiing to learn skiing. Our project about the hotel is also about to be completed. ”

“You will see a different Star Mountain”
Providing information about the location of Yıldız Mountain, Kemelek said:
“Yıldız Mountain is not just a mountain range but a single elevation. We built the facility on the eastern slope of the mountain. North slope forest may also be suitable for building facilities in the west direction if needed. The snow structure of Yıldız Mountain is the same as the snow structure in Erciyes, Palandöken and Sarıkamış. In other words, it was a snow structure that skiers liked, and this research goes back a long time. We had a road problem, we just opened a part of the road. The part of the road up to Paşabahçe Promenade Area should be finished as double asphalt. This will take time. Total investment will increase greatly, but none of this will happen at the same time, it will happen over time. We want it to be in a short time. Hopefully you will see a different Star Mountain at the end of 2014. I hope next year, we will be able to go and ski daily. ”
Expressing that they aim the center to serve tourists and expatriates in the summer season, Kemelek said, “Sivas residents living outside the city will stay at the hotel when they come here. The guests will benefit from the beauties of Yıldız Mountain, athletes will be able to camp, many sports branches such as hiking and paragliding can be performed there. ”
