1933'te, an otel and a well-maintained road were constructed in Uludağ, thus turning it into a center for winter sports from that time onward. The commencement of regular bus services further increased interest in the area. Later, this road, which was later covered with asphalt, connected all settlements of Uludağ directly to Bursa except for Kadıyayla.
Uludağ, with its modern mountain facilities and Turkey's first cable car, which was opened in 1963, has become the center for mountain and winter tourism, being located right next to Bursa, the fourth-largest city in Turkey. Uludağ is Turkey's largest ski resort. The suitability of the road conditions, the presence of snow during the long winter season (between October and April), and its unique landscapes attract many tourists to this area. The visibility of istanbul, the Marmara Sea, and nearby places from the summit of the mountain make it especially remarkable.
Due to the presence of hot springs in the eastern and northern slopes close to the Bursa Plain, thermal springs have formed here. These thermal springs, located in the Çekirge district of Bursa, are believed to cure many illnesses. Additionally, there are summer camps organized by the Red Crescent Association every summer at Sarıalan, the last station of the cable car, and at Çobankaya, which is accessible by chairlift from Sarıalan. The old Senatorium Building, located in Kirazlıyayla, is currently being used as a hotel. Uludağ has 15 private and 12 official accommodation facilities, many of which are equipped with chairlifts and ski lifts.
