    Mt Erciyes -3917m- Alpine Ski Touring Ascent hakkında.

    A well organized weekend ski touring trip is on the stage this winter We have organized a winter climb to Erciyes, the highest mountain of Central Anatolia, on mountain skis and split boards. This climbing is a rigorous ski climbing activity in the wild beauty of the mountains. Requires mastery of alpine skiing skills as well as mountaineering knowledge and experience. After the winter climbing season begins when the Central Anatolian mountains are covered with snow, the majestic Erciyes Mountain can be climbed with skis until the end of spring. We invite you to try one of the most beautiful alpine ski ascents of the winter season.

    Mt.Erciyes, with a height of 3916 m, is the highest mountain in the Central Anatolia region and one of the largest volcanoes in Turkey. It is one of our top pick-ıp – especially for being short and enjoyable- which provides a demanding ski ascent just at any weekend. We recommend this climb to the ones who have experienced alpine touring, are proficient in using ice-axe and crampon. Participants shall have minimum basic level winter mountaineering and camping pre-experiences. It should be noted that this climb is a key activity for those who want to raise the bar and dream for steeper climbs in high mountains.

    This trip is winter camping on one hand. Our camp is just in the heart of Erciyes, in the camp spot known as Çobanini. We will reach the summit by using one of the many alternative routes depending on the snow, weather and the physical condition of our group. We generally prefer the Devil’s Couloir. It is worth remembering that it is with-no-other-word a ski mountaineering activity.

    The most impressive moment of this climb is undoubtedly that moment when we see the surrounding mountains from the summit! Then we will ski down the huge face of Erciyes. If you like mountain ski adventures, this activity is for you!

      Day 1: Departure from Ankara by private vehicle. Arrival at Erciyes Ski Resort. Ascent to camp.

      We will depart from Ankara at 06:00 a.m. in the morning. According to our plan, we will be in Kayseri at noon. We will take a short break in the city for the last needs and lunch. We set out for the Erciyes Ski Resort. Time is very important to us due to the shortening of daylight hours in winter. After a short preparation at the ski resort, we will reach a height of approximately 2750 m with lifts. From here, we reach the Çobanini after a short walk.

      Our camp site is a plain called Çobanini. (Please read the note below) Campsite preparation is a must for winter camps. Welcome to the playground of real mountaineering. We will strengthen our harmony and knowledge exchange with our team after we build as good snow walls as possible and set up our camp according to the snow situation. Today, we have a short activity where we will review our knowledge and talk about our security measures. It is very important that we rest well, because we will start the climb very early in the morning.

      IMPORTANT NOTE: We do our climbing and ski trips to Erciyes mostly by staying in the rescue cabin located near the last station of the chair lifts instead of the camp. Thus, we carry much less weight and become light. Our accommodation here may vary depending on availability. Before the climb, our participants will be informed about this during the reservation, confirmation and preparation process.

      Day 2: Erciyes Summit Ascent. Gathering the camp, preparing and returning to Ankara.

      We will wake up in the morning and start climbing after a quick breakfast and preparation. Our route will be one of the route on the side of the mountain facing us. Our experienced guides are in charge for making this decision. We will choose our route according to the best snow and safety conditions. We can pass short-steep or technical stages with our skis on our backs. Therefore, it is important that your bags are suitable for carrying touring skis. In this remote location and tranquillity of the mountain, it is an outstanding experience to break trails to this huge summit. You will be at the top of Mt Erciyes this morning, when the other are still sleeping down in the city. Cities and plains painted white below us will be the other majestic mountains of Central Anatolia in our distant panorama.

      After a short scenic break, we begin or ski descent as carefully as we can, following our safety procedures. After resting and gathering at the camp, we will go down to the ski resort to meet our vehicle. You can take advantage of the lifts for your excess loads on the descent.
