Our task is to evaluate the natural, natural and historical beauties that are interspersed with Burdur as a mosaic both as a political institution, bureaucracy, administrators and local governments and to present them to the service of our people and turn them into an income generating element.
With this facility established in 2012, Burdur has also got its share from winter tourism, but as of now, we cannot use the facilities of this facility despite this potential, the quality of the snow quality here, despite the characteristics of the ski center. With full capacity, we want to increase this place to much higher conditions, both in terms of social facilities and accommodation, and to increase it to higher levels in terms of teleski, chairlift facilities and track length. We will intensify our future work at this point.

Experts say it is a great opportunity for first-time skiers and intermediate skiers. Combining this ski resort with very favorable conditions with summer tourism, we strive for the evaluation of Yeşilova District in the projects integrated with Salda Lake where both summer and winter tourism can be realized.
As all our related friends know, we want to bring an authentic accommodation facility that will appeal to the ski center and reduce the overall tourism intensity of Salda, in 2020, with a guided project that we will carry out with our Western Mediterranean Development Agency.
