Cross-country Skiing

Ski for a season, ski for a lifetime!

Learn a life-long skill on your holiday – come with us for cross-country skiing lessons at a beautiful location just outside of Karakol city. Join our team of local trainers and enthusiastic students for a series of group lessons designed to introduce you to the sport of cross-country in the shortest amount of time, from the very basic fundamentals up to more advanced techniques that will empower you to explore new routes independently after the course is completed.

Tour Highlights

  • Ease into the season with essential techniques that open up a new world of adventure on cross-country trails and simplifies the transition into downhill skiing for participants completely new to winter sports. 
  • Our beautiful mountain training ground just outside of Karakol combines the beauty of wintry mountains with easy access from the city.
  • Equipment and transfers are all included in the course price, so you only need to focus on improving your technique based on our instructors' feedback.
