Start Your Day With An Absurd Heli-Ski Trip In Uzbekistan

The trip report provided below from whitehearts.de

In February 2014 we were skiing in Uzbekistan in the totally lonely foothills of the Tien Shan Mountains. There the mountains reach up to 4,600 meters. You have fat snow and the longest lines on this planet with up to 2,000 meters in altitude. We were mostly on the move by helicopter – in a flight area as big as Tyrol. Nevertheless, there is only this one helicopter and no freeride competition. The bizarre thing is called MI 8, is 18 meters long, has a wingspan of 23 meters and 5 rotors. A real omibus of the air with a crew of three and up to 16 passengers. Not only did the helicopter porthole offer impressive views of the magnificent mountains, but also inside there was really something to see, because we had a go-go dancer from Tashkent on board. We had a lot of fun and unique experiences – both the helicopter and skiing as well as the mixture of peoples of Central Asia, the post-communist chaos and the exoticism of the Silk Road. Uzbekistan is madness and the real ski exotic!

In February 2014, we were traveling for skiing to Uzbekistan in the totally secluded mountains of the Tien Shan. The summits there reach up to 4,600 meters. We found thick snow and probably the longest lines on this planet with up to 2,000 meters in altitude. We were mostly on the way by helicopter – in a flight area, that is as great as Tyrol in Austria. Nevertheless, there’s only this one helicopter and no other freeriders. The bizarre flying thing is called MI 8, is 18 meters long, has a wingspan of 23 meters and 5 rotors. A true omibus in the sky with a crew of three persons and up to 16 passengers. Not only from the helicopter windows we enjoyed stunning views on the magnificent mountains, but also inside there was really something impressive to see, because we had a go-go dancing-girl from Tashkent on board. We had lots of fun and unique experiences – both the helicopter and the skiing and the people mixture of Central Asia, the post-communist chaos and the exoticism of the Silk Road. Uzbekistan is amazing and really great for skiing!

The snow was absolutely dumping out of the sky. You know when it snows so hard that it’s kind of a nuisance? I mean I love powder skiing as (…)
