The Suusamyr mountain range is situated in the heart of the Tian Shan at an altitude of 2200 metres. Surrounded by snowy summits as high as 4500 metres.
For those who prefer a backcountry experience, which is safer and not dependent on the weather, can take advantage of the Suusamyr Snowcatskiing programs. You are pulled by our snowcat, an all-terrain vehicle that also has a passenger cab for alpine skiers. Skitour and Backcountry programs are available for the most fit, experienced skiiers, who climb to the top of Tian Shan, and then fly down on untouched powder to the valley.
In the winter season 1.5 to 2 metres of snow falls on the Suusamyr mountains. This powder remains light and fluffly and rarely can you find layer marks. The season starts from the first snowfall (normally December through mid-March).
Snowcat is an enclosed-cab, truck-sized, fully traced vehicle with a passenger cabin for 12 people, used to take the skiers/snowboarders up to the point of descent.
It is a vacation — not a competition — we don’t count runs or vertical, just smiles. We ski early morning till just before supper time, every day. We dine at one large table — family style. Lodge has sauna, games areas, quiet areas, single and double occupancy rooms with ensuite. Owner is here everyday and skiing most days. A real lodge, under one roof — no running between cabins in the cold and snow.
One Group — One Cat
Exclusive access to the terrain — only one group at a time, ever. Excellent snow preservation, and no moguls. Always a backup machine if needed – but we can’t remember when.
Dedicated professionals who are here all winter — we know this place like the back of our hand. We also know you, what you like to ski, and we’ll do our best to find it! Have a thorough, detailed knowledge of our ski terrain.
Terrain Variety To Suit
Large terrain area (75 sq. km.) — we go where the snow is best — weekly average 8–10 cm of snow. Short runs or long runs, steep or mellow we have it all.
