Ski facilities in Turkey are fairly basic by European or US standards but infinitely cheaper and less cliquey and they provide a great opportunity to after-party with the locals. Snow is generally good and may last well into spring, especially at the country's best ski fields, Palandöken ski resort, near Erzurum. There is also decent skiing at Uludağ, near Bursa, and on Davraz Dağı, near Eğirdir. We also saw ski lifts being constructed on the slopes if Nemrut Dağı (the one near Van) when we visited, so another ski resort in Eastern Anatolia could be operating by the time you read this.
An alternative to skiing is snowshoeing,whereby you walk over snow on special shoes
