“Kite skiing”
Reviewed 27 February 2013

Rapidly developing ski resort on Erciyes volcano. Unbelievably cheap with plenty of powder and room for kite-skiing. Unlikely to remain so cheap for long and some of the lifts will get in the way for snow-kiting, although some of them will improve access to high plateau areas. It's a great place to do day ski tours so bring skins or snow shoes. No glaciers and we kited for 7 of 12 days in 10-30 knots.
It was £8 for a ski pass for a day in Feb 2013. Some of the lifts are a bit slow but at that price...
The Ace hotel is the place to stay and Baris Duldul in Arlberg sports is the local kite-man / general good guy.

“the highest volcanic mountain”
Reviewed 8 December 2012

When I went there, there was no so much snow but there was a really fresh air. The scene was awfull. If you spend more than a few days in Cappadocia, you should go there too.
