It is our duty to utilize the natural, natural and historical beauties interspersed with Burdur as a mosaic as a political institution, as well as bureaucracy, administrators and local governments in the best way and to offer them to the service of our people and turn them into an income generating element.
Founded in 2012, this facility has received its share from winter tourism in Burdur, but as of now, we cannot use the facilities of this facility in spite of this potential and the quality of the skiing facilities here.

Experts say it is a great opportunity for first-time skiers and intermediate skiers. Combining this ski resort with very favorable conditions with summer tourism, we strive for the evaluation of Yeşilova District in the projects integrated with Salda Lake where both summer and winter tourism can be realized.
As all our friends know, in 2020, we would like to bring an authentic, food and beverage facility with accommodation to both the ski resort and Salda to reduce the overall tourism intensity.
I think that a comprehensive tourism activity equipped with a ropeway in both Sagalassos and Yeşilova will add value to us, adding that the cable car project that we have finalized the feasibility studies of our Development Agency on the agenda of Burdur is now on the agenda of Burdur.
