Izmit City Forest Returned to Ski Center: While schools were on vacation in Kocaeli due to the snowfall that started yesterday evening and continues today, those who could not go to Kartepe for skiing enjoyed the snow in the Urban Forest in Umuttepe.
Snow reaching 30 centimeters in Umuttepe, which is more effective in the higher parts of the city and where Kocaeli University Campus is located, turned the slope in the City Forest right next to it into a ski slope. In the City Forest, where universities and families flocked to take their children with them, adults as well as children and youngsters also slided here with sledges, plastic bags and trays and turned the snow on the ground into fun.
Those who flock to the Urban Forest, which is used as a recreation area during the summer months, said, “It is difficult and expensive to climb to Kartepe in this weather. "We are enjoying free lost profit with our own means," he said. Meanwhile, the students said that they were wondering whether the schools would be vacationed tomorrow due to snowfall.
