A Total Outsider’s View on Kyrgyzstan

I have never set foot in Kyrgyzstan. Actually, I am pretty sure that no-one I really know has, apart from the few people I interviewed with for the job I am about to start there (and then, I can’t say that I really know them yet). Not only should this indicate you, reader, how crazy I am (I would write “adventurous” but it just doesn’t seem right), it also underlines my utter lack of insider’s knowledge of the subject. skiing

There are wolves here, but right now their threat to my survival is low on my list of challenges. Camping in a remote yurt at 9500 ft for a week, having to earn each of the powder lines I’ll ride through a couple of hours of skinning at 11,500ft, and trying to preserve my vegetarian diet in a country whose national game is polo played with a headless goat carcass as a ball, seem more pressing.

Discovering Kyrgyzstan’s ski resorts!

We finally left Bishkek to check out the nearby mountain in the Kyrgyz Ala-Tau range. Those mountains lay only 35km south of the Kyrgyz capital. From the information I had, there was 4-5 different ski resorts with a vertical ranging from 500m to 1500m. 2012Blog8-6

Why Kyrgyzstan? | Iron Horse Nomads

I always get asked this question, “why Kyrgyzstan?” I guess a lot of people here really want to go to America, so they find it really strange that an American would come here. I always respond by saying, “Why not?” 


An American expat considers his answer to this question.
