From the 1st to the 10th of February 2020
Our expeditions are always led by expert IFMGA Certified Mountain Guides
A trip outside the usual patterns, where cross country skiing is mixed with the ancient Kyrgyz culture and its great people. We will live an intense period immersed in the wild and unspoilt nature of the mountains of Terksey and Karakol Lake.
We will ski through incredible landscapes and we’ll try the experience of living in the warm and welcoming Kyrgyz yurts, which will give us the opportunity to ski in areas out of the world.
The organized groups can choose different dates depending on their needs
WHAT IS A YURTA ? : yurta is the tipic home of the nomad people of Mongolia, Kazakystan and Kyrghyzistan. It’s made of 3 main parts: a carrier wooden skeleton, a thick layer of sheep's wool as insulation and the internal and external coating of thick wool rugs that seal up the structure. In the center there is the brazier, which in a few minutes makes the indoor temperature very comfortable. Apart from the small opening on the roof of the chimney, the only other opening is made from the entrance door that is always facing south.
CLIMATE AND SNOW CONDITION: The climatic conditions of the country are quite similar throughout the area, with quite hot summers and cold winters. Thanks to this condition we can find dusty snow for long periods. It is rare that low atmospheric pressure stays for a long time.
