Destination: Bishkek – Karakol Ski Base – Bishkek
Usually while hearing the word «Asia» one can imagine a desert, a heat and camels in it. We have really enough heat, camels also but we don’t have deserts. Instead of them we have incredible mountains. Mountains for any sophisticated taste, any altitude and any kind of beauty. Starting from low Fergana valley (650m above sea level) and up to the highest Pobeda Peak (7439m above the sea level). 90% of the territory of the Kyrgyz Republic is covered with mountains. Winter in our country lasts since October till March. But the best time for Heliskiing is February and March. In February the snow is soft and fluffy with depth of cover about 0,7-1m. The avalanche risk is low this period. In March the depth of snow cover varies from 1m to 1,5m. On the windward slopes snow turns into a solid crust – a glacier snow.
The avalanche risk is average. The day temperature ranges from 15 degrees Celsius below zero till 5 degrees Celsius above zero.
Participating in our programs you may have an opportunity to be the first man to make a step on the virgin top. And thousands of slopes and glaciers streaming down of these tops and mountain passes will be our skiing tracks at the celestial stadium.
