Description

Are you ready to experience some off-piste splitboarding across the Tian Shan mountains? This is my proposal! Join me on a 6-day splitboarding program around the extraordinary Issyk Kul Lake in northeastern Kyrgyzstan!

The Issyk Kul Lake (1609 m/ 5,279 ft), also known as the Pearl of Kyrgyzstan, is surrounded by the most spectacular mountains and an extraordinary natural beauty. With 180 kilometers in length and 70 in width, it is the second biggest alpine lake in the world.

Our meeting point will be in the capital city of Kyrgyzstan, Bishkek. From there, we will transfer to Karakol, a city located on the eastern border of the lake. During the days to come, this will be the starting point of our everyday splitboarding tours.

Although this program allows skiers and splitboarders to take routes with different levels of difficulty, a good fitness level and some previous splitboarding experience is a must. Take into account that there will be an elevation gain of 1,300 meters.

So are you ready for a 6-day splitboarding program in the Tian Shan mountainsSend a request to book this trip and let’s go for it. I guarantee this will be a unique experience!

About the guide

I am a certified mountain guide, trained at the Kyrgyz Mountain Guide Association (KMGA). I have been working as a mountain guide since 2000. I have more than 20 summit ascents with clients on 7000 m mountains. I have been skiing for all my life. I completed education at Ski Instructor School (NRLI) on the ISIA system. I have experience in organising and conduction of ski tour programs on the territory of Kyrgyzstan for more than 10 years, I have also worked as a guide in heli-ski programs. I skied from many peaks in the territory of Kyrgyzstan, one of the famous is Lenin peak (7134 m), Korona peak (4860 m), and also skied north side of Elbrus Peak (5621 m) in Caucasus.

In addition to ski tours and mountaineering, I organize trekking programs and jeep tours.
