March 3 snow conditions update, Karakol ski resort avalanche fatality

A huge storm on March 2-3 brought a lot of snow all over the east Issik-Kul area. Here is the small update on the local areas:

Jyrgalan back country skiing yurt lodge: 50+ cm of fresh powder.
Aksuu back country skiing yurt lodge: 35-45 cm of fresh powder overnight.
Karakol ski resort: around 20 cm of fresh powder.

There was also a couple small snowfalls during the past 7 days. The weather is already a spring-like and more and more slopes are becoming avalanche-dangerous.

Karakol ski resort avalanche fatality

There was an avalanche fatality at Karakol ski resort a few days ago. A family of 2 adults and 9 y.o. kid went off-piste and triggered avalanche. Whole group  got caught by avalanche and while 2 adults ended on the surface the kid got buried. Not much information available but seems like no any avalanche beacons or safety gear were used. The kid didn’t make it.
