Visitor reviews for Uludağ Ski Resort
February 21, 2013
Coşkun İgten from Turkey
Uludağ hakikaten dedikleri kadar güzel ve etkileyici. Biz tavsiye üzerine Belçikadan geldik. Buradaki yorumları okurken Cem beyin bahsetmiş olduğu Agaoğlu My Resort otelde kaldık. Hakikatende oteldeki hizmet çok güzelidi. Hatta Cem Bey ve otelinde tavsiyesi ile Bursa Transfer firmasının VIP Sprinter aracıyla Atatürk Airpottan alınıp bırakıldık. Ulaşımda otelde herşey süperdi. Bursa Transferden Ufuk Beye çok teşekkür ederiz. Ulaşımı bu firmadan yapmak isteyenler için 05323346731 numaralı telefonu aramaları yeterlidir. Ayrıca Agaoğlu otelden ilgi ve alakalarından dolayı özellikle Fatma hanıma sonrada otel müdürü Murat Pınarcı Beye teşekkürü bir borç biliriz.

Written 5/4/2012 -
Uludag is an okay resort and I'd advise you go as part of your visit to Turkey and cities like Istanbul and Bursa - a ski holiday in Uludag will prove boring and unchallenging for intermediates and pros - unless you can go backmountain and ski on powder comfortably, however, it should be ideal for families and kids who have just started.
Although Uludag is Turkey's oldest and most famous, the piste is not well designed and some lifts were exclusive to some hotels even though I had a full resort pass - 65Lira for 1.5days in March.
The links between lifts and runs were not great and one has to make routes which is good but nothing compared to Europe. On a positive the snow is great, natural and real powder, you'll love the off-piste; but be warned the mountain gradient is not high, there are no black runs, maybe a few red and the runs are generally short; at most spend 3-4 days there.
However, it's not cheap, the hotels are expensive (even the basic ones) and at the weekend they double their prices, so negotiate and ask for an 'inderim'/discount and see where you go. Ski hire was 20lira per day in March for ski/pole and boots and private lessons were 60lira for 50mins.
I hope this helps and personally I'll ski in Turkey again, but at Palandoken in Ezurum in east Turkey which is a new resort and at 3300m high, it should prove more rewarding! We'll see :-)

Kim ne derse desin Uludağ hala Türkiye'nin en iyi kayak merkezi, liftlerin birleşmesiyle de bunu pekiştirdi. Tek sorun yavaş çalışan bazı liftler, onlarla ilgili de yenileme çalışması yapılacakmış seneye. Beden terbiyesi komple yenileniyor, 20 dakikada çıktığı düşünülürse zamanı gelmiş de geçiyor aslında. Uludağ otelleri için neredekal.com un Uludağ sayfasına göz atablirsiniz.

Cem from Turkey
uludağda her yıl kayak yapmak için her sene kışı sabırsızlıkla bekliyorum ve yılda en az 3-4 kez gidiyorum. Bu zevki sadece kayak yapmaktan zevk alanlar bilir. Her yıl arabamla dağa çıkmak benim için zor oluyordu ayrıca karlara arabamda gömülünce çıkarmakta çok zor oluyordu. Bu sene Bursa Transfer diye bir firma keşfettim. Beni mudanya idodan alıp Ağaoğlu otele götürdüler araçlarını ve şoförlerini çok beğendim. Hatta nokian diye bir lastik kullanıyorlar akıllı çivi sistemi dedi şoför arkadaş asfaltta çivililer lastiğin içine giriyor inanmadım ama görünce çok şaşırdım adamlar harbiden profesyonel iş yapıyorlar. Herneyse reklam gibi algılayanlar olabilir ama bende müşteriyim. Benim dağ yolculuğum kabustan çıktı Bursa Transfer sayesinde zevke dönüştü. Bu firmayla yolculuk etmek isteyenler için 0 532 593 05 27 numaradan ulaşsınlar inanın pişman olmazlar. Konaklama içinde ağaoğlu oteli tercih edin herşey tek kelime ile mükemmel. Hatta ön büro müdürü murat bey her sorunu çözebilmek için elinden geleni yapıyor. Oda sorunumuz olmuştu söylediğimde hemen güzel bir oda ile odamızı değiştirdi. Hatta ağaoğlu otelde kalanlar içinde tek kart sistemi sadece burada indirimli. Evinizde gibi kendinizi hissettemek için bence burası en iyi yer. Uludağa gidecek kişiler için pazar günü kayak yapmayı malesef tavsiye etmem günübirlikçilerden kayak yapmaya yer bulamazsınız. Hele hele poşetlemi şalvarlamı kayak yapan nasıl isterseniz her telden insan malesef var.

Orhan from United Kingdom
The resort and the way it is advertised (or not in this case) really needs looking into. It is poor to say the least and needs updating and I don't mean renovated hotel rooms. Skiing is a planned event but without being able to find sufficient information on the internet, you cannot plan anything. The piste maps are basic and minimal. For a small resort, you'd expect to be able to ski down any run, not in Uludag. Please, someone manage the resort, sort out the ski lifts set up a website dedicated to skiing only. Then the hotels can use this website to advertise themselves. Skiing is a great hobby, but with so much choice, Uludag needs to do more to make it appealing for skiers, not just from Turkey but all over.

ioannis from Afghanistan
I visited Uludağ the second week of January, where I saw a very nice landscape. I rent ski set at a reasonable price and I had a lot of fun. The difficulty was that the road that drives to the village, after the gates of the park, was icy and if you don't have snow tyres you have to use chains (I had rent a car). They should clean the road as they do to the rest part which drives from Bursa to the park gates.
I found a map for the ski center but this only represents the slopes and the lifts. There is no information about the slopes difficulty so they have to improve it. I believe that they must operate a web site dedicated to Uludağ ski center which can give you all the information you need, with maps, web cams, accomodation information, condition for the road etc. It is a nice ski center and it deserve this.

Volkan KUZUCU from Turkey
Big companies of Uludağ made an alliance named USOG - contains all lifts of Uludağ (17 lifts with several directions).
Daily usage of lifts is 30 TL (less then 15 Euro) for hotel guests, 6 - day ticket is 90 TL (less then 45 Euro) for hotel guests. The cost of ticket for 1 - day (outside of the hotel) 60 TL - close to 30 Euro, and 180 TL for 6-day period.
Not too much payment for 66 km long lifts.

Fantome from Turkey
It is true that this year Uludağ will have a single pass system (at last) but there is a contradiction about prices. As far as I know it will be 30tl (15€) per day for hotel guests and 60tl for others which is reasonable for all skiers. And another thing is it is not 17 hotels, it is 17 lifts. And those lifts cover %99 of Uludağ.

yiannis from Greece
I visited Uludağ a year ago during a short trip in Turkey. For the quality they offer I can say that the hotels are very expensive (so the food and the drinks) and also the use of ski lifts. The safety on the slopes is very poor.
It is cheaper to visit and ski for a week in Austria than to stay for a week in Uludağ. If you visit Bansko or Pamporovo (Bulgaria) you will spend half the money. Uludağ hotels and the ski area can survive because Turkish (until today) can't travel abroad easily and the whole system relies on them.

Ahmet Akpinar from Turkey
Agaoglu and 17 more hotels have announced that they will go this 2010-2011 season on a "single pass" system for 1st and 2nd area pistes, probably not the "whole" but most of them included. According to the "non-official" information, daily unlimited price will be about 80 TL ( about 40 € ). The hotel managers are "warned" not to shuffle any price yet.
This is some good, some bad news for Uludağ. Most of the Turkish guests come here on weekends. That is the sign that the pistes will most probably be more expensive, at least doubled on daily basis. On the other hand, some of them might be connected, so you don't have to turn around on a single piste all day long.
I think, they have realized, that the critics here and other web sites are effective, and they have to do something about it.
What if they start thinking about more qualified, educated personnel, security, limiting barriers, information signs, experienced Search & Rescue Team, better teleskies, transportation between 1st and 2nd Area, and set some standards not to "fool" guests, keeping the environment and the rivers clean. Will it happen?
Well, maybe, if we keep the pressure on it...

Zeynep from Turkey
I kindly ask you to read till the end, hope you enjoy it.
I admit Uludağ is not the best place for winter sports but you can make it the best for you. First of all you have to book the best term; i.e. google "uludag" and you will reach every info about events. To be honest, I wouldn't go there during the winterfest or spring break if I don't want to wait in the never ending queues etc. Between the second and last week of Feb, it is extremely crowded and I won't recommend you to go there. But when you visit the resort during the weekdays, hotels have good deals and you will do whatever you want on the borderless pistes. I also recommend you to take a one-hour lesson from the licenced ski instructors to have a good idea about the pathways and connections. I have to add that many hotels are going on a renovation this Summer and in 2010-2011 season, you will have really good service with the same prices. And as a little foot note, 1st district is the first developed one and has the most lifts; luxury hotels are located on the 2nd district, modern and very, very long and mostly black pistes are also connected with here.
Please check out other resorts in Turkey before planning your trip because we have really good resorts i.e. Palandoken/Erzurum (they have registered pistes for races), Sarikamis/Kars (Sarikamis has the best snow on earth - crystal snow and the best view of forest with yellow pine trees), Ilgaz/Kastamonu etc.. You just google for them and choose the best one for you. Good luck & Thank you!

Uludağ is a third world resort. Zero organisation, zero respect, only people with large jeeps and ready to spend some money, manage their way. In my opinion, don't go.
February 07, 2010
Kasper from Denmark
Uludağ is a nice place and it is a good option for a one or two day ski trip from Istanbul. But if you go to Uludağ then be aware of the very poor lift pass system. I very much regretted for not having bought for Agaoglu from the beginning. Instead of buying a day pass to Agaoglu for 60TL, I spend 70TL for three other lifts other lifts. Agaoglu has slopes for beginners to intermediate skiers and it also gives you access to places with powder (for some reason powder is being left untouched in Uludağ). And they even have a modern 4person express chair lift.

Jay Newman from United States
I learned how to ski at Uludağ resort during college in 1984. I am now planning a return trip with my family this year. I think that the prices I have been quoted are very reasonable and that this will be a grand holiday when combining skiing with the sites and delights of Istanbul.

The visiting of the mountain Uludağ is suitable for people living in Turkey, Asia, Africa etc. But I noticed that people living in İstanbul often go to ski at resorts in Bulgaria; Bansko, Borovets and Pamporovo. I want to congratulate them. It is really the best decision. There is a truly nice ski runs in Italy, France and Switzerland but if you have not visa for this country, unfortunately you must ski in Uludağ. The prices are realy high: hamburger 13YTL, Absolut votka 50 ml 21YTL Tea 4YTL. The owners and staff of the hotels at Uludağ are Turkish people with Turkish mentality. The first aim of a lot of people of this country is to deceive foreigners and strangers. At first sight we are very hospitable, friendly etc. But it is not so. A lot of people in Turkey use at least 10 masks. They never wil not understand that deceive yourself. Thank you for your patience(during reading of message/travel in Turkey).

Pete Marshall from United Kingdom
Currently working in Turkey and on our 2nd trip to Uludag. Both times we have stayed at the Agaoglu Hotel which gives all inclusive board with good Turkish food and a large selection of drinks (it also has free Wifi in the rooms - as you are witnessing.). It has been renovated sometime between 08 & 09 which is good because the rooms were very tired on our first visit. Most importantly, the Agaoglu (pronounced something like 'Arollou') gives the best deal on lift passes and the best selection of ski lifts. The lift pass works out at about £4.00 per day (for 5 days) and you can get around the whole resort on the 5 lifts the ticket gives you access to. That gives you an idea of the size of the ski-area. The system of the hotels owning certain lifts at Uludağ is utterly senseless and someone needs to bang the owners heads together until they agree to form some sort of limited company and share the lifts. This is supposed to be a national park but they have allowed this feckless system to scar the mountainside by building 4 lifts from roughly the same start point to roughly the same end point. Every lift has at least one other shadowing it nearby. Someone needs shooting for that decision. Now I've got that off my chest.
The resort is about 25-30 years behind the modern European and North American resorts. Safety is typically Turkish in that it is your responsibility, not 'the managements'. However, the debarcle of a lost boarder mentioned elsewhere in this review section has obviously had some effect. We have just been refused skiing this afternoon because the military are on the slopes looking for a child who has been reported missing in the thick fog this morning.
Skiing in Uludag is comfortable. The first time you stop at a restaurant on the mountain and a man dashes out to take off your skis for you resolves to getting quite accustomed to this service. People are generally friendly and service is good. However, if you have a lot of Turkish children in your hotel at Uludağ, then may your god help you.

Just came back from a wonderful holiday in Uludag. Stayed in Monte Baia Hotel that had superb service, lovely people and easy access to the lifts and slopes. The ski instructors at Uludağ are absolutely perfect, lovely lovely people.
Uludag: such a wonderful place with snow, slopes, hotel, people. Truly enjoyed it.

Ahmet Akpinar from Turkey
A snowboarder died last week in Uludag. He was riding from Maden Area close to the 2nd Area hotels. The security people did not start a proper search operation for him properly, although he asked help from his cell phone to his parents many times. As he was found he was only 2 km away from the hotel, and it was known for 12 hours that he was missing. There were 2 hospitals on the top but they didn't find a doctor in there. During travelling to the city for 1 hour, he died.
This is a total disaster for every parties involved in it. The hotel which did not take any safety at all, the search staff who are inexperienced, lack of material, lack of communication, missing health care and all the other factors we don't know at all.
Besides all the problems said here, the safety in Uludag is a general problem. The lift operators, usually unaware of that "the safety comes first" are unfriendly or like bored and the pistes are "out of control", there are almost no information signs, no limiting barriers at all. So it's like "riding in wild, wild west". You can see those wide & big snow trucks in the middle of the day in the middle of skiers and snowboarders, trying to escape from them, because the night might be too cold and require overtime (!) for them. In the 1st area people just go sightseeing in the pistes and they look to you like seeing "what are you doing in my way?"
The Uludag Hotels are managed by those people who want to make good money in short time, but they are doing a business, which they know nothing about it.
Everybody tend to pay for good quality, but quality for a ski-center does not mean that the rooms are clean and the food is good, there is no good organisation for people who want to make sports with safety and joy.

Volkan Kuzucu from Turkey
In order to solve your problems, Agaoglu Group of Company made a deal about it.
Many of owners (hotels and ski area) rejected to make an alliance.
But our company tried to make guests at Uludağ happy and made two high-technology structures (named Gondola and Kusaklikaya). With the other structures (Fahri Telesiege, Fatin Telesiege - other name Hell & Heaven and Belvu Teleski) we have 5 lifts for our customers.
If you stay in Agaoglu Resort Hotel you have %50 discount. (It means 60 usd for 6 days)
Better price for better quality.

karkay from Turkey
geçen sezon davrazdaydık, orda da aynı sorun vardı çıkışlar tüm liftleri kaplamıyordu ve oldukça pahalıydı, bu sene uludağdayız ama burda da durum aynı hatta daha kötü sanırım; kazı tuttuğun anda yolucaksın mantığıyla devam ederlerse pistler boş kalmaya devam eder, haftasonu line tv de sektörden kişileri davet etmişler uludağın problemlerini konuşmak için; hepsinin söylediği şey bu 2-3 ayda kazandıklarıyla 1 yıl geçinmek zorunda oldukları; bu da ellerine yanlışlıkla düşen olursa tüm yılın acısını çıkartıyorlar demek oluyor anladığım kadarıyla ; sonra otel yöneticisinden malzemecisine herkes ağlıyor iş yok diye. liftleri bağlayın , fiyatları makul seviyeye çekin insanlar sezonda 1-2 kez o da sezon boş geçmesin diye geleceğine herhafta sonu gelebilsin

Özgür Yazıcı from Turkey
Uludağ'ın en büyük sorunu bence burada bazı arkadaşların da belirtiği gibi bütün alanları kapsayan günlük çıkışların olmaması. Edindiğim izlenime göre bu hususta çalışmalar olmuş ama yapılan toplantıda hemfikir olan otel yetkilileri toplantı sonrası kendi bildikleri gibi yapmaya devam etmişler. Pek umutlu olmamakla beraber Uludağ'ın geleceği için bu sorunun mutlaka çözülmesi gerekiyor diye düşünüyorum, bir uçtan öbürüne Uludağ'ın bütün pistlerinden tek çıkışla istediği gibi kayabilecek bir kişinin "müşteri sadakati" anlamında alternatif yerler aramaktansa devamlı Uludağ'ı tercih edeceği aşikar.
Eğer iyi derecede kayakçıysanız, Uludağ'da seçebileceğiniz 2-3 günlük çıkış modeli var. Bunlardan birisi 2. bölgeden çıkış almak toplamda 7-8 pistten tek bir çıkışla( ski-pass) faydalanabiliyorsunuz, 1. bölgedeki gibi ana baba günü olmadığı için sıra fazla beklemiyorsunuz ve dağın en uzun ve zevkli pistleri olan "Maden(Volfram)" ve "Kuşaklı" burada bulunuyor. Günlük fiyatı geçen sezon 60 ytl civarındaydı.
2. Alternatif Ağaoğlu otelden çıkış almak, toplam 5 teleski-telesiyejden çıkma hakkınız var ve kuşaklıya çıkan telesiyej 4 lü ve kapalı kabin aynı zamanda çok hızlı. Bunun fiyatı da günlük 50-60 gibiydi diye hatırlıyorum.
3. Alternatif ise Genç yazıcı, Ulukardeşler gibi otellerin oluşturduğu bir yapı, burada Cennetkaya telesiyeji ve kuşaklıtepe nin yanına inen teleski den faydalanabiliyorsunuz, bu alternatifin en çarpıcı yanı fiyatı, günlük 15 ytl.

murats from Turkey
I think no Turkish ski resort worth having visited from abroad. But if you are living in Turkey Uludağ (with Kartalkaya) worth to be visited. But still have to keep expectations low.
Uludağ is one of the three Mt. Olympus of mythology (Greece, Antalya, Bursa) It is one of the most sceneful national parks of Turkey. Since close proximity to Marmara sea, quite amount of snowfall occur in Uludağ. But this proximity also decreases snow quality especially by the effects of south directed winds (lodos).
Lots of hotels with varying prices. Ask for lift options and availabilities. Some hotels provide larger options of lifts. One should use sunscreen at sunny days and get prepared for wind as well.
Weekend crowd is also a problem, but at Kuşaklıkaya valley you get affected less.
If you shorten your expectations, you can have quite fun.

Spent a weekend in Uludag (25-27 January, 2008), staying in Ak Hotel, 2 stars. Full board including 1 chair-lift, 150 USD/person/night (single rooms). Not inexpensive, but still a very nice stay and quite a surprise in many ways. Food ok, staff friendly, although not very good in English (and I don't speak Turkish). They still haven't changed their system of operating the ski lifts, so you can choose to stay within the reach of your lifts, or pay extra to be able to use the others...
I purchased a day-ticket for two additional lifts, but felt inclined to also purchase an intermediary lift, to make the transition easier (could have been omitted) paying an additional 50 + 15 YTL, approx 40 €, which is quite expensive for what you get.
BUT - it was still worth it, because snow was better further to the east in the system, and less people, I mean NO people, just straight into the chair, or anchor, no waiting. Could be 5-10 minutes in other lifts...
Very interesting experience, but not worth traveling for, if not already in Turkey, ie Istanbul or Bursa.
