Mount Davraz (Turkish: Davraz Dağı), also sometimes cited as Mount Davras, is a mountain and a winter sports and ski resort in the Taurus Mountains in Isparta Province in southern Turkey. The nearest cities are the province seat of Isparta and its depending district of Eğirdir, both of which are at a roughly equal distance of 25 km (16 mi) from the Davraz Ski Resort (Turkish: Isparta Davraz Kayak Merkezi). Antalya is 140 km (87 mi) away and, served by good road connections, is approximately a 1 ½ hour transfer.

The tallest peak (Büyük Davraz) at the resort is 2,637 m (8,652 ft) with the highest skiing height being at 2,250 m (7,380 ft). There are black, red, blue and yellow runs, so there are facilities for all levels of skiers. Access to the slopes is via drag and chair lifts - depending on the particular run.

The resort is open from December 1st each year, although the main period of winter sports varies with the snow conditions, which usually means from the first week in January.

Davraz is served by one main hotel, Sirene Davras Ski and Wellness Hotel. The hotel is located at 1,650 m (5,410 ft).
