Season: Mid of December– End of March
from $1190 USD per person.
The central part of Terskey Ala-Too Range is located in the east part of extensive Issyk-Kul hollow. Closeness of a huge lake and Terskey Ala-Too mountain range provides high humidity and high precipitation rates during winter months in form of snow.
Season starts in the mid of December and continues up to the end of March. The snowiest months are January- March. In some places snow layer can be as high as 150 sm. There are sometimes long periods without snowfall so skiers have to ski rubber like snow, however variety and quantity of slopes around us don’t leave us a chance to be bored! At the end of October some slopes are covered with 30–40 sm snow layer.
The program is suitable for experienced off ski road skiers. The skiing area is very extensive, the steepness of the slopes is 20 – 45 degrees. Difference in high level is up to 1000 – 1200 meters. There are different skiing areas for assent and descent with variety of terrain.
Ascent variants and number of descents are chosen by the guides in accordance with preparation of the group, skiing experience and members’ preferences. Difficulty levels of the routes are different, so we have something to offer both experienced free rides and those who just start mastering backcountry. There are one-day walking (ski-tour) segues and mountain ascents during the program that requires pre- tour physical preparation and workout.
Bear in mind that off ski road skiing is extreme and potentially dangerous type of sport. Non compliance with safety regulations and the guide’s instructions can cause trauma.
