    Skiing Uludag

    Skiing Uludag

    Not quite like Tahoe or the Rockies, but on par with what I've experienced in the Midwest of USA. Apparently here in Turkey, you can by an all-day unlimited pass, but more commonly people opt for the pay-per-run pass. You buy a ticket with as many runs as you want, getting a slightly better bargain for the higher numbers, and then every time you get in line, in order to pass the automatic gate, you must swipe your pass in a reader.

    The area has huge hotels and condos, large enough to compare with the big resorts in the west of USA/Canada. The base elevation is maybe a hair over 2000 ft, and the highest peak is about 3000ft, but it's not accessible from the area.

    Equipment: They will have everything if you need it, but larger sizes might be tough.

    Home of Bursaspor, one of the main football teams in the Turkish SuperLig, Champions on 2009-10.

    A stadium has stood on the site since 1930, although the current incarnation of the Bursa Ataturk Stadium was built in 1979

    The stadium, also known as the Timsah Arena, (Crocodile Arena) is a 25,456 all seater. The Turks are looking to expand the capacity to 45,000, with a covered roof, as part of it being one of the 9 candidate host stadiums of the Turkish bid for UEFA Euro 2016.

    A decent enough stadium, easy to get in and out of , which makes a pleasant change in Turkey.

    The stadium has the benefit of being very walkable from the city centre. There are also plenty of bars and kebab shops en-route.

    The club shop is on a little roundabout just in front of the stadium. At the back of the stadium there is a park.
