8 Days

Feb, Mar




Join me for an unforgettable 8-day ski touring trip to the untouched slopes of Suusamyr Valley in Kyrgyzstan.

During this ski tour, we will enjoy amazing snow, with up to 2,5 metres depth! Besides, spectacular winter scenery, delicious Asian cuisine and hospitality.

The mountains of the Suusamyr Valley are located 130 kilometres from Bishkek’s airport. This beautiful valley has an elevation of 2200-2600 metres. Its surrounding mountains reach a height of up to 4500 metres. The valley lies between two ranges of the Tian Shan mountains: the Suusamyr-Too to the south and the Kyrgyz Ala-Too to the north.

I love taking my clients to this great area! What makes it so special?  Its inmense variety of slopes, with different extension and exposition. We will enjoy incredible descents during these 8 days.

Also, the Suusamyr Valley offers stable windless weather. Furthermore, a firm snow cover from the beginning of November till the end of March.

On the first day, we will meet at the Manas International Airport, 30 kilometres from Bishkek. From there, we will transfer to Suusamyr Valley.

We will stay on a mountain-skiing base, with standard services. Then, the next days, we will enjoy the best ski tours on incredible snow! You can check the detailed itinerary below this text.

So contact me if you want to be part of this great ski touring adventure! I will answer any questions you may have about the program. And we can start planning an unforgettable trip!

Also, if you want to explore another fantastic area in this country, you can  check my 9-day mountaineering trip in Ala Archa. We will climb some amazing peaks there!

Mountain Guide

I'm an IFMGA-certified guide from Kyrgyzstan and started guiding professionally in 2003. In my 14 years of guiding, I worked as a high altitude and technical mountain guide, trekking and hiking guide, ski-touring guide and ice and rock climbing gide.

I finished Mountaineering Instructor School in Kyrgyzstan and I am a member of the Kyrgyz Mountain Guide Association (KMGA).

Additionally, I am ”Snow Leopard”. This title is given to those who have climbed all the highest mountains in the former Soviet Union. These include: Lenin peak (7134 m) 2 ascents, Khan Tengri peak (7010 m) 2 ascents, Korzhenevskaya peak (7105 m) 1 ascent, Communism peak (7495 m)1 ascent, Pobeda peak (7439 m)1 ascent.

I have worked all over the Tian-Shan and Pamir ranges. I worked as a guide in Lyallak and Dugoba, in Alla Archa National Park and Suusamyr Valley, Terskey Ala Too and Kyngei-Ala Too.

As a mountain guide, my top 3 priorities are: 1 -safety, 2 –creating positive experiences for my clients and 3 -expedition success.

I am a mountaineer and really love the mountains so I also spend all my free time here. I have participated in expeditions in the Himalayas, Africa, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Patagonia and Russia.

I live and work in a beautiful mountainous country and I will be glad to show you the virgin beauty of the Kyrgyz mountains.

What people are saying about this trip



We have ended up in Jyrgalan valley as Suusamyr was not feasible for making the skitouring trip. Nonetheless we enjoyed very much the trip and the guide: Anastasia was really resourceful in finding out the best possiblities. Was not easy task during the everchanging weather circumstances. In addition to that we always felt safe.



Thank you for showing us your wonderful country, guiding us safely through the mountains and teaching us so much about ski touring. Our eyes have been opened to future possibilities and we hope you can guide us again another time.



We spent our time skiing in Jyrgalan as there was a lot more snow there than in Suusamyr Valley. Jyrgalan was fantastic - blue skies and deep powder! It was a truly remarkable few days. Our guide, Anastasiya, was excellent and she is highly recommended - friendly, good fun, highly knowledgeable (particularly in respect of managing avalanche risk) and extremely helpful.



Fantastic trip with Anastasya who is a great and friendly guide. She is very experienced, safe and always looked for the best places to ski. We had long days and could do several ascents in a day. We went to Jyrgalan, not to Suusamyr as the region was closed. Jyrgalan shows a lot of options. We highly recommend a stay in a yurt camp. We stayed in a nice guesthouse which served very good food. Great experience and for sure we will use Explore/Share service again.



It was great skitour program in Jirgalan valley. It was pretty deep powder and new experience skiing in such conditions. If you want to come to Jirgalan for ski touring, I recommend bringing wide skis. Our tour was well organized and we really enjoyed the food and hospitality. Anastasia is a friendly, experienced and patient guide.
