Kyrgyzstan is 94% mountainous, so just about everywhere you look, You face a new breathtaking alpine vista. The climate continental, warm summers, cold winters, lots of sun, and huge temperature gradients. The snowpack is most volatile in March, and shallowest in December/early January.  Late January-February and April are the ideal months for hitting the backcountry.

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.
