Guys from USA having a great adventure by traversing through 4200+ m Tien-Shan mountains starting at Chon-Ashuu pass and visiting Aksuu Back country Skiing Yurt Lodge at the end of their journey.
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
- Personal windguru weather station at the Jyrgalan Yurt Lodge site – done
- Explore snowkiting possibilities at Jyrgalan valley – coming soon
- New website dedicated to the back country yurt skiing in Kyrgyzstan – SKIYURT.KG – coming soon
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.
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.
Check the gallery below.

This season we started earlier to avoid difficulties connected with the transportation of all camp stuff and yurts. The way up to the Aksuu Backcountry Yurt Lodge site took just 3 hours with 2 military soviet URAL trucks compared to 3 days last years late December. We are already running, welcome.
