Ski-Resort Suusamyr, Kyrgyzstan
Suusamyr is located 220 km away from Manas International Airport and it’s famous for their cold temperature and great snow conditions. The area gets usually between 1.5 and 2 meters snow which is quite a lot for Kyrgyzstan ski resorts.
Suusamyr is a mountain valley on 2,200m above sea level. The road goes over a mountain pass and collects Chui-Valley withSuusamyrand therefore a main route for trucks. As the road is usually covered by snow – especially onthe Suusamyr side- you should only drive there on a 4x4 car.
Suusamyr offers what a Freeride Heart is hoping for. Easy accessible terrain untouched slopes and snow as far as the eyes can see. If you get the feeling something is missing but you do not know what. Then perhaps you are looking for trees and forests. The highest peaks can reach an altitude of 4,500m and the off-pist experienceoffered by Suusamyr lodge is one of the major attractions in the valley. From the lodge groups depart every morning by Ratrack to the mountains. After a forty minute drive (it always depends where they take the group), you are in the middle of the mountain. Suusamyr is a great place for not so experienced back country skiers as you can directly ski down from the place where the Ratrack stops. While the tourists enjoy the snow the Ratrack drives down for picking up the group once more. Experts can still unpack their skins and hike up the nearest peak.
