“I already knew Erciyes. I also had some skiing experience. There wasn’t much snow when I came last time, but today’s view pleased me very much,” a visitor stated.
“I spent my childhood in Kayseri. We did not know Erciyes and take it for granted. I wish we could learn skiing at that time. I think everyone should learn to ski,”she stated.
Another visitor who came to Kayseri from the capital Ankara to learn to ski, said, “I regret not skiing until this age. I recommend skiing to everyone.”
