Description

The Suusamyr Valley in Kyrgyzstan is a fantastic untouched area, perfect for a ski touring weekend.

This beautiful valley lies between two ranges of the impressive Tian Shan mountains: the Suusamyr-Too and the Kyrgyz Ala-Too. It's a great ski touring spot, for its wide diversity of slopes, with different exposition and extension. It's located just 130 km away from Bishkek's airport.

The Suusamyr Valley is situated at an elevation of 2200-2600 metres, whereas the surrounding peaks reach a height of up to 4500 metres.

Most important, in this valley we find a stable snow cover from the beginning of November until the end of March. Besides, it offers windless weather. So get ready to enjoy incredible runs an descents on amazing powder!

Also, ski touring in this beautiful region is a fantastic way to discover a new country, a different culture.

If you want to join me on this ski touring weekend, just send me a request so we can set a date. Come and discover the breathtaking landscapes and amazing powder of the Suusamyr Valley.

If you have more time available, you should check my Too Ashuu ski touring week, also in Kyrgyzstan.

About the guide

Based in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, I’m an IFMGA-certified guide and the technical director of the Kyrgyz Mountain Guide Association (KMGA). I'm also a certified mountain guide and mountaineering instructor, and a “Snow Leopard” — having summited all five peaks over 7000m in the former Soviet Union. I’ve received extensive training in Switzerland and I’m a certified rescuer (carrying out rescues up to 6800m).

Ski touring and mountaineering are my two biggest passions and I love sharing these activities with my clients. I specialize in high altitude and technical ascents, heliskiing, backcountry camps and avalanche courses.

I’ve stood on the summit of a 7-thousander more than 20 times — including Lenin, Korjenevskaya, Communism (Somoni), Pobeda and Mustagh-Ata, among others. I’ve also participated in ski mountaineering expeditions to Lenin Peak and Mustagh-Ata and several 4-thousanders around the world.

I’ve also been organizing my own avalanche courses since 2009 and was in charge of translating materials on the Russian risk reduction method Nivocheck. I speak English and Russian.
