Description

I invite you to a unique adventure: an 8-day ski tour in Kyrgyzstan, enjoying the breathtaking landscapes of the Terskey Mountains. 

The Terskey Mountains belong to the Tian Shan mountain range, that crosses many countries in Central Asia.

During this trip, we’ll be based in the valley of Jyrgalan. This valley is hidden from the Issyk-Kul lake by a mountain ridge. Because of this, there is no strong wind and snow pack is not blown out.

In fact, this is a region with a large amount of precipitations (twice as in the famous national park in Karakol). That’s why there’s always plenty of snow.

Snow starts to fall in October, so the ski season goes from mid-end of November until the end of April. And in the last years it has been even longer.

This means all conditions are set for us to have powder and fun on our ski trip! You can also arrange snowmobiles and snow cat if you want to add more color to your journey.

We’ll stay in an ordinary country house, which has been remade for the needs of skiers and snowboarders. It has warm bedrooms, a common guest kitchen and showers. There’s room for up to 18 people.

Please contact me if you want to join me for this amazing ski trip in Kyrgyzstan, enjoying the beauty of the Tian Shan mountains!
