Big Mountain Ski Mountaineering in an Unusual Place

February 11th, 2014 Posted in Ski Touring

Today’s dose of visual beauty comes to us from a place where not a lot of (not enough of!) climbing/skiing movies are born… the Tien Shan mountians of Kyrgyzstan. I stumbled upon this piece of ski mountaineering beauty in Powder mag.

The movie does a very decent job of depicting rural Kyrgyzstan without trying to romanticise the poverty. This movie is not about going for huge drops and extreme shit – it’s about doing what you love in an unusual setting; I mean, how cool is it when you stay in a yurt in the middle of the mountain after a huge day!?

We regularly visit Kyrgyzstan for the classic Lenin Peak climb, but may look into getting our feet wet with some less obvious adventures to pumping your adrenalin levels. It’s a beautiful, widely unexplored country.

If you want ski mountaineering with a bit of cultural beauty but would rather not travel to Asia, why not try ski mountaineering or winter climbing in the High Tatras of Slovakia?

    The locking mechanism should bbe the most durable and positive that you can find.
    A knife tray also makes for another great storage option which
    can fit inwide a drawer thus leaving your knives always organized and ready for use.

    In receent times, Japanese chefs’ knives have been growing in popularity amongst professional chefs seeking to
    achieve high standards of excellence in food preparation tasks
    because of their cutting ability, sharpness and swiftness.

    If counter space is a problem, drawer inserts or plastic blade covers are available that provide safe storage.
    Of course this kind of knife isn’t just a common knife,
    it can be utilized in los of ways as well. As illustrated above, the proper way
    to hold your knife that offers the most control, stability annd safety is to have the
    forefinger and the thumb clamped on the side of the blade,
    and the three remaining fingers on the handle.
