More Info

Kyrgyzstan may be an unsuspecting destination for backcountry skiing, but it is one of the best out there. If you are looking to stray away from the crowds and inflated prices of Europe this winter, consider booking a backcountry skiing trip to Kyrgyzstan.

The temperatures may be below freezing, but the continental climate of this former Soviet nation also makes for some of the very best snow conditions on the planet. You won’t want to miss the truly one-of-a-kind “après ski” experience here in Kyrgyzstan either. Try the hearty, traditional dishes and strong drinks while you chat with the curious local characters.

This mountainous country located along the Silk Road to China is incredibly interesting and just waiting to be discovered by the outside world.
