    Aparently the newest ski resort in Turkey (yes you can ski in Turkey).

    Anyone think this has any value ?

    You might have to wait till you can actually ski in the place before the name is marketable


    With considerable difficulty we turn the car round, find another track leading upwards, repeat the process, get stuck again. An hour later we admit defeat. There is no way up the mountain by car.

    We return to the main road and take the turning into Seki village. It’s not quite a ski resort but it does have a busy small restaurant , so we go there for lunch. As mulled wine is not on the menu, we settle for Ayran instead. Our food is magnificent, soup, meatballs with all the trimmings, beans, salad, and sutlaç. All for six lira a head.

    We ask the owner about the ski resort. He looks a little red in the face; he shuffles, and stares at a distant point in the landscape. ‘Well’ he admits, ‘it’s not exactly open at the moment’ ‘When will it open?’ we ask. ‘When they have built it ‘ he replies, ‘They plan to start later this year, after the snow. It should be ready in a couple of years’

    Even though there is no ski resort, we still had a great day out. If you are planning a trip to Kalkan for Easter and want to do something different, Seki is well worth a visit, the scenery is magnificent, there will be an abundance of wildflowers on the lower mountain slopes and snow at the highest points of the peaks.

    The welcome from everyone we met in the village couldn’t have been warmer – but they may look at you rather strangely if you are on skis.
