YURT-BASED SKI & SPLITBOARD TOURS
40 Tribes introduced the idea of yurt-based backcountry skiing and splitboarding to Kyrgyzstan in 2010. The concept marries entirely native resources—yurts, mountains, snow, and motivated locals—to create jobs at the local level and deliver a perfectly blended mountain and cultural experience for our guests. Our private yurt camp at Jalpak Tash features one kitchen/dining yurt and separate yurts for clients and guides, located high above the stunning Issyk-Kul Valley. We offer 6 weeks of guided tours during the height of the winter season (late January-the middle of March), bookended by self-guided and private booking availability.
