Eagle Ski Club Ak Shirak

The Ak Shirak range of mountains in Kyrgyzstan is still largely unexplored, and by going later in the season than previous trips, this team hoped to make a SW-NE ski traverse without experiencing the problems of snow-blocked passes. They completed 50km of the route, achieving first ascents of seven peaks over 4,600m in the process, including Kyrgyzia, at 4,954m the highest in the north of the range.
