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.
We had a very special guests on March 2015. Travelers With Skis team came to visit Aksuu Backcountry Skiing Yurt Lodge, try out our camp life and shred the slopes all around. Check out the 15 min long video which will motivate you to make a step our of this world for a while and find the feeling of real freedom.
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.
Renegade OB crew from New Zeland had a trip of a lifetime during the 14/15 winter season. Gaint mountains, good people, deep powder and cheap vodka. See the video edit.
