In his speech here, Deputy Secretary General Selami Keskin said, “As of today, we are approaching the last days of the season preparations on the mountain. As of November 9, our position in the mountain as the Metropolitan Municipality is as follows: Palandöken and Konaklı Ski Centers were affiliated to the Ministry of Youth and Sports until 2013. With the decision of ÖYK taken on 04.01.2013, it was connected to the Privatization Administration. On 04.01.2016, that is, exactly three years later, a joint stock company was established and the management of Palandöken and Konaklı Ski Centers, which were under the Privatization Administration, was transferred to the company. On July 4, 2016, the company in question was transferred to Erzurum Metropolitan Municipality with the decision of the Council of Ministers ”. Reminding that they are constantly informed about responsibility and management, Keskin said: “There is some missing information. 'Which unit is under the responsibility of Erzurum Metropolitan Municipality?' there are those who ask. All facilities and businesses, except for the ownerships and lifts and runways of private enterprises in Palandöken and Konaklı, are carried out by the affiliate company of Erzurum Metropolitan Municipality and under its responsibility. Jump Towers are not us either. Jumping Towers are in the Ministry of Youth and Sports, and the hotel next to it… We do not have ski jogging in Kandilli and the facilities there. We do not have the curling hall and other halls either. The Metropolitan Municipality has the fields of the study that we can call 'Alpine Discipline' in Palandöken and Konaklı now.
