Memories of Turkey – Davraz Ski Resort
As the days turn colder I fondly remember the many skiing trips to Davraz, a little ski resort about a 2.5 hour drive from Antalya, near Isparta.
Although most years there is only good snow for a brief time I had some great trips there and had loads of fun, skiing, tubing, sledging and generally mucking about in the snow.
There’s a few hotels near the slopes that are vastly overpriced and all in all the “resort” is under-equipped and designed to make a quick buck, medical facilities are woefully lacking, food and drink are hard to find and very expensive when you do and if you get to the ski hire shack after 10am they’ve run out of equipment!
Regardless its a beautiful spot and when the weather and snow conditions combine to show off the mountain in its best light it really is a stunning place.
