Hi Sakara,

I don't think there is a place that specialises in 2nd hand ski gear. You can ask the expat community in Bishkek if someone can borrow you their stuff for a while. Otherwise, tour operators and ski resorts rent out ski gear.

Let us know if you find a solution!

Second-hand sites perhaps your best bet, or ask tour operators or resorts if they want to sell you some of their old equipment.

hey Steven
I just bought second hand skies and shoes at gergert sport today (tip from my couchsurfing host). They have some for sale at their old store (its 100m from the new, where they also have the rental).
Prices are considerably more expensive than second hand material in Switzerland, but still way cheaper than new. You need to ask the staff for 2nd hand, its not on display.
I could imagine that other places that rent skis also sell 2nd hand.
