But according to the information we received from meteorology officials, as of December 29, there will be heavy snowfall in Akdağ. This snow that will fall before the New Year will also make our people who will come to the region for skiing happy. Our guests can ski with the current snow. They can slide with small and large sleds. Only professional skiers cannot benefit from the track. The chairlift works. Even if our guests do not see 100% snow, they can ski. We are constantly meeting with meteorology officials. They state that there will be a serious rainfall as of December 29. This situation, the same problem exists in other ski resorts. Every region of Turkey did not see much snow this winter. "
