Snow lovers won’t be able to resist the texture and gloss of the beautiful Suusamyr Valley on this unique 8-day ski tour!

Options include:

  • Using the snowcat to make between 6 and 7 descents per day !

  • Heading to the top point of snowcat stops and then exploring the area on skins. 

  • Driving the car to other corners of the Suusamyr valley to explore hidden areas. 

Every day, we will have a tasty lunch box for our midday break in the mountains. Then, after a day of non-stop fun, we will return to the Suus Lodge where can relax at a hot sauna or play ping-pong. Finally, after a delicious dinner, we will be able to enjoy the restful silence of the mountains!

February, 2023

We had a really nice time with Yaroslav and his driver Daniel. We were skitouring in the end of February in Karakol and Jyrgalan. Yaroslav is a very professional guide and knows the region very well. Thanks to him we always found the best spots for powder snow. The hostels that he selected were all excellent and clean. Both, Yaroslav and his driver Daniel are very punctual and reliable. They helped us in all matters and were very warm-hearted and fun! all in all we had an amazing week and are very thankful for the fun time that we had together! I would defently book again with Yaroslav!

We decided to do a different tour instead of the alpine lakes tour. But really it was amazing and exactly what I was looking for. Yaroslav was a super guide and hiking companion. Thank you so much really! Andreas
