This UNILIG Program is very different from our other program. Our government really gives serious support to this organization. We know the situation of winter sports in our country. It develops day by day, but unfortunately, this development is not as fast as we would like. We all know the possibilities in this beautiful mountain, this beautiful province. Erzurum has winter sports opportunities that are not available anywhere else in the world. You can reach the hotels in Palandöken Ski Center in 10 minutes from the airport and you can ski on the ski slope half an hour after your plane lands in Erzurum. Nowhere in the world we have ice halls as dense as in Erzurum. We need to use them all together. As a Federation, it is our duty to organize nice organizations in this beautiful place and to offer this service to our universities. Our universities need to be in and in the middle of this business. Every student coming to Erzurum should ski. Universities should not stay away from winter sports. Erzurum, the first question of the 2011 World University Winter Games candidate because sports authorities 'Is it snowing in Turkey?' happened. 'Yes, it's snowing in Turkey, the most beautiful snow, the cleanest snowing in Turkey, Erzurum is falling,' we said. It is very difficult to find such a beautiful environment anywhere else in the world. It is not possible to find this beautiful atmosphere and warm people anywhere else. Let's improve the winter sports in this beautiful country together. "
