Skiing in unknown Kyrgyzstan
There is justifiable ecological concern
with respect to ski runs
and the deforestation they sometimes encourage.
Kyrgyzstan is not a heavily forested country
and at the ski resorts we use
no tree felling has taken place
to facilitate the creation of ski runs.
When: between December 10. 2016 and March 1. 2017
Price: 980 euro p.p. if 2 or more participants
Children under 14 years: 20 % discount
Our second winter (2016/17) offering enthusiastic and adventurous skiers can discover the unique slopes and runs of Kyrgyzstan, a country with over 180,000 kilometers of skiable piste of which only 5% is currently accessible.
Our exclusive new programme offers six days skiing, in six different resorts in and around the capital city of Bishkek, each between 30 and 90 minutes drive away.
SSkiing is still in its infancy in Kyrgyzstan and you will ski slopes and pistes that few foreigners have encountered.
The slopes vary in length and difficulty but are more than adequate for beginner and intermediate skiers (blue and red pistes). There are also some more challenging runs available (black pistes).
Based in the UMAI Hotel in Bishkek you will be driven to a different resort every day. Your English or German speaking guide will be there during the day to offer any help and provide warm drinks and a picnic or BBQ lunch. Dinner will be at the UMAI or a local restaurant.
