We are a small group of freeriders from Denmark looking at going to Uzbekistan for some adventourous freeride. A few of the days are to be by helicopter, but otherwise we'll be taking the lift and then walk up.
Does any one here have experience with Uzbekistan, as we will be planning the trip without travel agency?
I've been looking a staying at either Chimgan or Beldersay, as these areas have a lift. I'm leaning towards Chimgan, as this looks to be a bit higher than Beldersay allthough the areas are close. However is it possible to also get some heliskiing out of Chimgan?
Also does anybody have contacts at Uzbekistan who might help us with Visas and transport from Tahkent to the ski area?
And finally, will it even be worth going there?
We're very good skiers, with decades of experience in with freeride. So we are of cource looking for some nice adventures on the mountain.
Any lead, suggestion no matter how small are very welcome.
