A short movie of my ski-kite trip in Kyrgyzstan (March 2020).

📜 Kyrgyzstan is an amazing country with infinite beautiful and wild mountains which offer unlimited playground for backcountry skiing and also snowkiting. Wind is mainly localized around passes and on crests. The dominant wind comes from South and blows downhill. In the valleys there is almost no wind in winter. The best direction may be the North-East one: the wind is very strong, consistent and dry.

🌍 Here are the areas we have explored:
0:10 – Too Ashuu ski resort
0:30 – Otmok Pass (West of Suusamyr valley)
1:38 – Suusamyr valley
1:57 – Ala-Bel Pass (West of Suusamyr valley)
