Make sure you choose an insurance company that covers Turkey
It’s worth remembering that Turkey isn’t strictly speaking part of Europe – and Erzurum is considerably further east – so you’ll need to choose an insurer with protection outside the continent. TrueTraveller ski insurance offers some of the best value, most comprehensive ski and snowboard cover that even includes park riding and off-piste (check the exact details at time of booking). Go with the best – go with TrueTraveller.
Reliable snow – but you can forget nightlife
Palandöken has some great skiing – particularly for beginner and intermediate skiers and snowboarders – all at amazing value. This video also covers accommodation options – starting at around just 10€ if you’re willing to stay in the city of Erzurum, just a 10-15 minute taxi ride from the main ski and snowboard area. However, if apres ski is your thing, you will feel pretty limited in both Palandoken and, especially, Erzurum.
