Day trip to Eliksai Ski Center

Highlights: skiing in a little private ski center with 3 black slopes, fresh air, beautiful views; in the case of 2 days – staying in the country house with Russian banya (sauna), snow jumping after banya

Season: end of November — beginning of April

Duration: 12 hours (maybe extended to 2 days)

Are you a skier or a snowboarder? Have you already tried Shymbulak and still want some new experience? We have one special decision for you! Eliksai ski center is located a little bit further from the city but… the forest is really fresh and virgin (no snowcats or ratracks, no carving slopes, no rules also). The center exists from the early 90-th so it has a cool old-school mood with wooden cabins among trees, T-bar lift, three black slopes and barbecue in the wild. One more pleasant point is the price of the ski-lift that is three times cheaper than at Shymbulak. Those ones who would stay for one more day will extend this «into the wild» experience with Russian banya (sauna). Yes, we jump… into the snow after banya’s heat… naked. And we strongly recommend you to join us — you are guaranteed to have a new health and spirit’s pep after it!
