Our aim is to encourage children who are our future to sports and not to leave children who do not know how to ski in Erzurum, which has become a winter sports center. With the ceremony that we held for the third time, we increased our number to 300 by adding 1500 more students to our club. Now we will teach skiing to 50 students who are not from Erzurum but study at the university. Thus, when university students graduate and leave Erzurum, they would not break their ties with the city. ”
