The first groups of Russian tourists began to arrive at the ski resorts of Turkey, but not everything went smoothly. If at the Erzurum Palandonken resort tourists are already “enjoying skiing and snowing,” as Turkish media assures, then at Uludag, according to their estimates, the situation is sadder – the cancellation of tours has begun. The reason is the lack of snow cover. However, it is not a fact that Russian tourists account for the bulk of cancellations.
According to Turkish media, the first charter of Russian tourists arrived in Erzurum. In total, they plan to arrive 3 days a week. 185 people arrived on the first flight, all of them went to their hotels in Palandeken, where all conditions are provided for skiers, including snow-covered slopes.
But on Uludag the situation is sadder. “Preparations for the New Year have been completed in hotels with a capacity of about 5,000 beds, and in the entire tourism sector of Uludag. However, the lack of snow resulted in a cancellation before Christmas. Hotels in Uludag, where in previous years there was no place to celebrate the New Year, will meet the new year with a 50 percent load,” Turkish media write.
At the same time, although they promise that the temperature will drop, however, according to information , received from the Main Department of Hydrometeorology, no snowfalls are expected in the coming days and at the beginning of the new year. However, it is likely that Russian tourists will provide most of the load to the resort, since it is difficult to cancel the tour due to the inevitable loss of money, domestic tourists are likely to cancel the reservation.
