Finally the web camera at Jyrgalan valley is back online. We had a huge renovation at the site since the September and had to turn off the camera.
Overall we have 4th yurt set up at our area and now we have 3 client yurts, in the spring we will add one more yurt which means that in summer you can choose to stay from 3 private yurts and one shared.
As for mid-December snow status – there is around 35-45cm of snow at the snowmobile-supported back country skiing area and yesterday we had a group from Kazakhstan who enjoyed the snowboarding at this area.
The plans for upcoming season are huge and awesome, check them out:
New lodge at the upper Jyrgalan valley at 2900m – named Jyrgalan Heights Yurt lodge – done, details coming soon
New lodge at the Tyup valley at 2300m – named Jyrgalan-Tyup Yurt Lodge – in the process of setup
As said in the previous post – this winter is quite poor for snow in the Northern Kyrgyzstan. At this date (Jan 18, 2018) we have around 40-45cm of snow at the Aksuu Backcountry Skiing yurt lodge site and around 50-60cm at the higher-altitude slopes. See some photos below.
While some groups are still shredding the pow at Aksuu Backcountry Yurt Lodge, we already started our kite boarding season at the Issik-Kul lake, Kyrgyzstan. The first attempt has been made on March 15th and felt like a north-pole kite surfing. The water was freezing-cold even with 5mm wetsuit. It was a light wind session at the Blue Lagoon kitespot with a 17m Cabrinha Contra and 18m Switch Helium. This day we had onshore wind called Santash.

After one week at the Aksuu backcountry skiing yurt lodge we have done a lot of small upgrades all over the camp. We have a slackline and swing now. New sauna looks and feels so great. We already had a couple snow dumps since beginning of November.
More then a year of shooting in different locations. Gone through all weather conditions, meeting different people all around the country. And finally 6+ weeks of editing. Result is this nice shot movie. Check out some Aksuu Backcounty Yurt Lodge scenes through the video.
We have updates on our program page. We are setting up 3 brand new yurts and a new sauna for the upcoming season. The prices remain the same and the most affordable around the Kyrgyzstan’s BC camps! Check it out Aksuu Yurt Ski Lodge. Plus some new photos on our gallery.

Valentines day? Never heard about this. This time the Feb 14th is a great day to hang out with friends at Suusamir valley. Tons of powder everywhere. Probably this is the the best place for freeskiing this time all over the country. This season is very poor for snow conditions even in Karakol and around. Quite dangerous avy conditions. Check out some photos.
