Hi Mohammed,

Kartepe (Maşukiye) is 80 km from SAW airport. There is no direct transport from SAW to Kartepe. You have three options to get there:

1) Taxi (I guess it will be very very expensive)

2) Private transfer (very expensive too)

3) rent a car and self drive (would be the most economical one).

SAW airport is very close to TEM (O4) highway and Kartepe is only 90 minutes drive from the airport. Make sure that your car is equipped with a GPS device (to find your way) and a HGS sticker (to use the tolled highways). There will be still snow until the end of March but I am not sure it will be enough for a satisfactory skiing experience. This year we are having a very mild spring and I hope you can find what you are looking for in Kartepe.

Best of luck,
