You can rent all your skiing and winter sports gear on the mountain. Unless you have your own items, you do not need to buy new gear to do this trip. If you are bringing all of your own gear, be sure to check with your airlines and that all the items are in good working order.
** Turkey's electrical sockets/outlets follow the design of one of the two European standard electrical socket types (two, round prongs): the "Type C Europlug," "Type E" and "Type F Schuko." These types of sockets/outlets are also used in Germany, France, and Russia. If your appliance's plug doesn't match these sockets' shape, you will need a travel plug adapter to plug in.
Electrical sockets/outlets in Turkey supply electricity at between 220 and 240 volts AC. If you're plugging in an appliance built for 220-240 volt electrical input, or a device that is compatible with multiple voltages, then an adapter is all you need.
IMPORTANT: Travel plug adapters do not change the voltage, so the electricity coming through the adapter will still be the same 220-240 volts the socket is supplying. North American sockets supply electricity at between 110 and 120 volts, far lower than in most of the world. This being the case, North American appliances are generally built for 110-120 volts. That doesn't mean that your specific device isn't already compatible with the higher voltage or that you won't be able to use your device in Turkey. You will need to make sure that your device will facilitate 220-240 volts and that you have the appropriate adapter plug.
