Up & Gone: Freeriding in Suusamyr
It's here! GO KG is launching Up & Gone, a section where we will collect the best tours throughout the entire Kyrgyz Republic. This will include all kinds of tours — anything interesting and unique, worth your time and attention. The name speaks for itself — we will show you tours, which will make you want to be up and gone. And we are starting with the SUUS snowcat skiing tour to one of the best places in the Kyrgyz Republic for freeriding. It's not only our pick, the place has made it to The Guardian in 2016.
There are lots of places in the Kyrgyz Republic for skiing and snowboarding — from numerous smaller ski resorts around Bishkek and up to more serious spots like Karakol. But freeriding is different — it gives you a sense of freedom no ski resort can give. And SUUS was the first place in the country to introduce snowcat skiing.
This tour is to the Suusamyr mountain range located at the altitude of 2,200 m and surrounded by summits of up to 4,500 m. The season is from December to mid-March. SUUS lodge is 160 km away from Bishkek, which is around a 3-hour drive. Passenger all-terrain snowcats will take you up and then you can enjoy the slopes.
There are several packages depending on how much time you want to spend in Suusamyr. Starting from €60 per a day and up to custom tours you can build yourself according to what you prefer.
