A fantastic ski touring experience on the roof of Anatolia “Mt. Ararat”!
This biblical and legendary mountain is very suitable for skiing and it is possible to ski between the campsites and even from the summit. The snow filled tracks on the mountain make for great skiing from the summit all the way down to 2000 meters. Winter snows often accumulate to well below this saddle, and even sometimes as low as Dogubayazit at 5600 ft (1700 m), providing numerous possibilities for spectacular and lengthy ski descents. Its an exciting to think about the possibility of ski mountaineering on Ararat. With the incredible vistas from the mountain you are sure to get the greatest pleasure from your ski descent over thousands of meters.
