2025 Kyrgyzstan Program


  Welcome to our 2025 Kyrgyzstan cat skiing program. This will be an 11-day trip exploring the skiing in the Tien Shan mountains in western Kyrgyzstan. This is a private cat skiing trip with 6 days of cat skiing and one (second day is optional) day of resort and sidecountry skiing at Karakol resort.


  We will be riding with an experienced local guide and we will have the cat all to ourselves. The mountains in the Jyrgalen area where we will be based, receives a lot of lake effect snow from the nearby Lake Issyk-Kul, the 7th largest saltwater lake in the world, so we should experience plenty of untouched quality powder.


  We'll have a day of resort skiing at Karakol resort where they have amazing sidecountry terrain and you can enjoy an optional day of (more) resort skiing, horseback riding, exploring more tourist sites or even shooting at a gun range. There will also be a strong cultural component for this trip, with stops along the way on our drive to Karakol as we navigate around Lake Issyk-Kul, the highlight being the afternoon spent with the family of Golden Eagle hunters.

  This is a very unique experience and an opportunity to visit a seldom visited area by Westerners, but one where they have great skiing, amazing culture, lovely food and friendly and curious local people. Come join us on an unforgettable journey this winter!
