Salda Lake is not only one of the rare places you can visit in the scorching heat of summer, it also offers you different beauties in winter. Salda Ski Center, which is about 10 km away from the lake, is one of the rare places where you can ski with lake views. Generally, it is possible to see snow around 50 – 100 cm on the hill covered with snow from December to the end of April. The land structure of the hill covered with natural vegetation becomes suitable for skiing even in 30 cm snowfall. Salda Ski Resort does not currently have accommodation.
