Stating that Erciyes is ready for the new year and they are waiting for ski lovers, Erciyes A.Ş. Chairman of the Board of Directors Murat Cahit Cıngı said:
“You may be faced with risks and possibilities that you cannot control in mountain conditions. Therefore, technology makes serious contributions to the ski industry to a certain extent, but after that it depends entirely on whether or not rainfall, as a result of the will of Allah Almighty. Technologically, there is a problem of snowfall in general in our country and in the world until now. We opened our main runways at Tekir Kapı, Hisarcık Kapı and Hacılar Kapı, by doing the maximum we could do so far, with an artificial snow system. Weather conditions are also important for our artificial snow system. The direction of the wind has an effect. You cannot make a profit without seeing minus 4 minus 5 degrees. "
