Let us introduce you probably the two only tour skiing Mountain Guides in Turkey! These guys were both born and raised in the City Erzurum in the heart of Palandöken. Because Erzurum is one of the biggest ski bases in Turkey they have developed their skiing skills to a high level and are combining this with mountaineering. Yildrim and his best friend Mustafa Tekin educated themselves with the Turkish Mountaineering Federation. Over the last 10 years they have guided people from all over the World in the Palandöken Mountain range and the holy Mt. Ararat, that’s how their company Alpinturkey evolved. So if you’re looking for first ascends and descends don’t hesitate to contact them.
