The Horseback Ski Tour

White gold diggers powder mine. Those in search of white gold on the silk road should search no more.

Here is the ultimate ski-touring and split-boarding adventure: a horseback snow tour in Kyrgyzstan.

Winter sports are one of the main reasons to travel to Kyrgyzstan in winter—who doesn't like surreal landscapes and fresh untracked powder?

Even if you’re not a very experienced tourer, you should consider adding a few days of skiing in Kyrgyzstan to your winter expeditions checklist. We haven't heard yet of a better ski touring destination.

WhatPeopleSay

    Kyrgyzstan really is different to anywhere else we’d ever been. Off the grid is an understatement!

FARAWAY LAND

Outside of the capital Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan remains very underdeveloped, which is possibly the number one reason that makes the place so magical.

You can experience a nation largely untouched by western culture and the modernized world. Now add some of the most impressive mountains in the world, consistently dry and cold snowfall, and you’ll start to understand why we are telling you to fly halfway across the world to experience it.

DRY AND COLD

Makes the snow gold.

You should be preparing for savage temperatures and very basic food comparable to your beloved winter French Alps nights.

However, the staff is very conscious to keep the wood burners going and yurts warm even in the freezing cold nights. They are comfy, and you certainly won't go hungry!

WILD YURT CAMP

Welcome home, pilgrims.

Your accommodation during the trip is a winter glamping base camp. A traditional Kyrgyz handcrafted Yurt stay.

These winterized yurt lodges feature wood/coal-fired stoves, solar lightings, native-style rugs on top of extremely soft floor beds,  isolated wooden floors, game tables, and washstands in each yurt. We're basically saying, they are very basic.

    The basecamp is located right where you want it: in the base of the mountains you will ride.

Kyrgyztan Horse Ski Tour Guide riding on a horse

Despite language barriers, Kyrgyztan's local ski and horseback guides are very kind. They will show you one of the unique places you will have ever skied.

The contrast between the snow and the striking hues of the cliffs is astounding. You might be the third first tourist that the horse trekking guides will ever guide.

And let's be honest, having a minor involvement in creating a new conscious and respectful tourist trade in some Kyrgyzstan villages feels pretty cool, humbling even.
