Ak Bulak in ‘t lang
Ak Bulak is a good starting point for beginning skiers. As mentioned in the text above, it gets very crowded with day-trippers on weekends. For example, there is a long, gentle, gradual descent for practice and teaching. However, the practiced Ryciger does not come all the way to Kazakhstan for the beginner slopes!
Freeriding for the advanced
If you want to fully experience the atmosphere of freeriding, the Ak Bulak ski area is the right place. Steep descents, an abundance of snow, pine forest, narrow passages and vast snowfields. Ak Bulak has it all. Not to mention the many couloirs and drops – as numerous as the stars. If you go on weekdays, it is also wonderfully quiet. After the deep-snow challenge, fully recharge yourself with a meal at local restaurants or even an overnight stay at the slopeside hotel. Built in 2006, Ak Bulak ski resort quickly grew to become one of the region’s most popular destinations for tourism. It is about 60 kilometers from the metropolis of Almaty, which is about an hour’s drive.
