    Explore the beautiful remote snow covered region of Arabel Valley, in Kyrgyzstan. Spring Glacier is one of the many stunning glaciers between Terskey Ala-Too and Jetimbel’ ridges. Join me on this exciting 7-day adventure to splitboard the best snow and slopes.

    Located to the south of Issyk-Kul lake, the Arabel Valley is filled with incredible snowboarding options. Each day, I’ll choose an amazing route depending on snow and weather conditions. I’ll also take into consideration your interests and the mood of the day.

    The Spring Glacier is located on the Arabel plateau, an area that offers all kids of routes for all types of skills. Some slopes even reach 3,800 meters! Please note that skiers are welcome too.

    Make sure to bring a splitboard, a helmet, a transceiver, probe, shovel, a 20-35 liters backpack with holdings for snowboard, warm clothes, sunglasses, sunscreen and a one-liter water bottle. I can guide you in organizing your equipment if you wish to.
