The Suusamyr Valley is located in the Chuy Region inside the Tian Shan mountain range in Kyrgyzstan. It is about 2,000 to 2,500 meters above sea level and has a width of 3 to 5 kilometers. The valley is full of magnificent mountains and it is the perfect place for skiing.

The starting point of our trip will be Bishkek and from there we will drive to the Too-Ashu ski resort. This will be the starting spot for our ascents and descents around the valley. Here you can enjoy 7 kilometers of slopes and an altitude difference of about 1,000 meters. The main ridges of the winter sports area are the Kyrgyz and the Suusamyr Too.
