Ketmen Ridge Ski Touring

The Ketmen ridge remains a deserted, wild and untouched corner of nature, despite its evident proximity to Almaty. The unique geographical location of this ridge contributes to an early start of the snowfalls and high snow accumulation. A sufficient amount of snow usually available allows us to open the backcountry season in the Tien Shan mountains as early as possible. This is where one of the first ski touring programs in the region takes place.

Every day, we will head out to explore the different routes the region has to offer depending on weather conditions and on the group. We will have a Russian bathhouse (sauna) available to recover from long and thrilling days out on the slopes.
