Burdurlu people should go to the Ski Center
Speaking at the opening where various events and competitions were held, Deputy Bayram Özçelik emphasized that the Salda Ski Center should be the owner of the Yeşilovalı and Burdurlu. We must create picnic areas in the mood. In summer, we should carry grass skiing or different ski sports in Europe and keep this area open for service for 12 months. We try to be the pioneer. If someone has a mind for Burdur, we are trying to do this as best we can.
We have to make it a center of attraction
Advocating that the Salda Ski Center should be an attraction center that appeals to the region, Deputy Governor Ali Nazım Balcıoğlu said, “Yeşilovians are very lucky, especially young people are very lucky. They should make good use of this chance. A domain that doesn't have a lot of ads. Antalya is a province that receives 12 million foreign tourists every year, Expo 2016 will be held in Antalya in 2016 and 10 million people are expected. At this point, we can turn Salda Ski Center into a center of attraction by making the necessary advertisements in the surrounding provinces. ” said.
Every year will be more beautiful
Yeşilova District Governor Necdet Özdemir stated that they will continue to work by developing, beautifying and growing the Salda Ski Center every year, and said, “Our Salda Ski Center is important for our region. Activities will continue here to improve skiing and to increase young people's interest in skiing. Young people should have an interest in at least one sport. If we increase our children's interest in sports, it will surely have positive returns. ” said.
National athletes will train
