Heliskiing and Snowboarding in Uzbekistan

Heliskiing and Snowboarding
  • DURATION: 8 DAYS / 7 NIGHTS
     

Heliskiing programmes have been run in Uzbekistan for over 18 years. Within this period of time the region has become so popular that booking should be done one year prior to the beginning of heliskiing season. Stable weather and rather favourable temperatures for heliskiing, big choice of great slopes and the best price quality ratio account for this popularity. Skiing takes place in the mountains of Western Tien Shan (Ugam, Pskem and Chatkal ranges), just 100–150 km from Tashkent — the capital of Uzbekistan, at the altitudes between 2,500 and 4,200 meters above sea level. The average run is up to 2000 vertical metres and can be as long as 10 km.

Mountains of Western Tien-Shan provide beautiful snow conditions for skiing within the period from second half of January to middle of April. Normally, slopes accumulate up to 1.5 m – 2 m of snow level at the beginning of heliskiing season. Snow is fresh, soft and powder-like everywhere. Middle of March and April are characterized by spring-like snow, but still on some slopes soft and powder snow even at that time can be enjoyed. Air temperatures vary depending on ski zones: from –10oC to –3oC.
