Uludag Snowboarding

The MOST popular snowboarding destination in Turkey.

Southeast of Istanbul and Bursa, the Uludag is the oldest and largest ski area in Turkey. Much like Aspen, Uludag is a glitzy, party resort. It has 25 trails with a maximum vertical up 1,800m, that are popular for snowboarding. Keep in mind that seven different lift passes are required to access the 13 different lifts. Try the great backcountry trek up Zivre Peak. Keep in mind that most obstacles on Turkish ski runs are unmarked, as are the resort out-of-bounds lines.

Overall, Uludag is the 1st most popular snowboard & freeride destination of all 3 snowboarding resorts in Turkey.
