Activities to Do in Erciyes

Many activities are carried out in Erciyes in the summer and winter seasons.

Year 1972 I lived in Arlberg Lech ski resort in Austria for 10 years. Throughout my life, I developed the German language. I learned ski skiing techniques at ski schools and performance ski gliding techniques on the blue, red and black ski slopes at the altitudes of the alpine mountains, on abundant snow, crusty snow and icy tracks. I received technical training for many years on Alpine ski slopes in Austria, Italy and Switzerland.

I learned a foreign language in Austria, I took the expertise of ski shoes on orthopedic soles to provide skiers with more technical sliding of the in and out pressures of the soles of the feet during skiing. I learned about the concepts of how the ski centers will be formed in the standards of World Countries, European Countries and my own country.

After returning to my country, Turkey, I gained expertise on ski resorts that will not look like alpine mountains in our country, and I gained experience as an instructor on tracks with different snow quality. I would like to state that my city Kayseri and Erciyes Ski Center are of the quality of Alpine tracks. I give ski education and training in Erciyes Ski Center

In many years, I helped my son Mert Değirmenci to join the national ski team at the age of 9 by teaching the techniques of skiing and making technical developments when he was 3 years old. He represented our country abroad and in various countries by carrying the national title in the Turkish Ski Federation for 12 years. I teach skiing by making skiing enthusiasts enjoy skiing education and training.

Blue colored ski slopes;

For moderate skiers, minimum 15%, maximum 35% slope, minimum runway width of 30 m. (A blue track may have green and red portions in certain proportions, and these portions affect the overall average slope.)

Red colored ski slopes;

For good skiers and official competition ski slopes, minimum 35%, maximum 60% slope, the minimum track width (according to FIS criteria) is again 30 m. (Inside a red track, there may be blue and black portions, which affect the overall average slopes.)

Black ski slopes;

Difficult tracks have a minimum slope of 60%, a maximum slope of 100% (ie with a maximum angle of 45 degrees), and the minimum track width is between 40 and 60 m. (The greater the steepness, the greater the width) A black runway can have red portions that affect the overall average slope.

The cable car is the general name given to the suspended vehicle that travels between two distant places, by being tied on one or several steel ropes stretched in the air. Cable cars work with the principle of elevator, but they can rise to very high points from the ground, just like a helicopter, especially at valley crossings. The cable car is set up between difficult-to-reach heights. There are also those that exist over a sea or a strait. The places where the cable cars are installed are the regions that are very difficult or very expensive to reach by land, rail and sea. The cable car established between two certain points in such regions is used for the transmission of people or materials. The cable cars where people are transported consist of passenger cabins suspended on steel ropes.
Chairlift is a small type of cable car that is mostly chair-shaped for those installed in ski centers, and mostly cabin-shaped for those working between camps and settlements. Cabin-shaped ones are called gondolas or telekabins in some countries. In some places, both chairs and cabins can be located on the same line.

Chairlifts are divided into 2 types as fixed and detachable clamps. Fixed-clamp chairlifts are used with a maximum speed of 3 m/s and chairs for 2/4/6 people. Detachable chairlifts with high speed and capacity can be used with 6 mt./sec speed and chairs for 4/6/8 people. The longest chairlift in Turkey is established between the camping areas Sarıalan and Çobankaya in Bursa Uludağ. The length of the line is 3,000 meters. This chairlift consists of both two-person cabins and two-person chairs.

Teleskis, which are designed to be used in ski centers, lift the skiers from the lower point to the upper point by pulling them with the T-Bar (Equipment that provides the pulling task). Teleskis included in the fixed-clamp ropeway group; It is used for short distances in ski resorts. However, teleskis have some drawbacks. Since they carry skiers on the runway without raising them to a certain height like other types of cable cars, there is a high risk of collision between skiers skiing on the piste and skiers on the ski lift. In addition, getting rid of the T-bars at the destination points of the ski lifts requires a special skill. Chairlifts, which do not have such risks and allow skiers to rest during their journey, are more preferred by ski resorts than chairlifts.

There are basically 3 main types of ski profile with high maneuverability, which are common today: Camber (convex) Rocker (collapsed) Flat (flat) We often come across different combinations of these in modern skis.
Camber skis are the most common type of ski since ancient times. When you put the camber (pronounced: kembir) skis on a flat surface, you will see that the nose (front) and tail (back) parts of the skis touch the ground, and the middle part (belly) of the ski under the bindings rises slightly in a convex way. The longer this cambered part of the ski is and the higher the camber, the stronger the ski’s grip when pressure is applied to it. The lower this camber is, the more tolerant and controllable the ski is.

Rocker skis (pronounced rakır), also known as reverse camber. In rocker skis, the nose of the ski (sometimes the tail part) rises earlier than camber skis, and this causes the ground contact point to shift towards the middle of the ski. The shortness of the surface of the ski in contact with the snow ensures that the ski can easily move forward and be easily steered in heavy snow. Rocker skis offer the convenience of turning without applying pressure to the edges. The longer the rocker, the more stable and easy to control the ski. In addition, as the width of the rocker ski increases, their maneuverability also increases. The shorter the rocker, the more grip the ski provides.

Flat (flat in the middle) skis In flat (pronounced: flet) skis, the flat (flat) part is usually located between the nose and tail of the ski. If you put these skis on a flat surface, you will see that there is no gap between the ground and the ski. Usually the middle part (belly) under the bindings is completely flat, while the nose and sometimes the tail of the skis are rocker.
