Almaly is a tiny ski base under 2000m. If you really want to avoid the crowd. At the moment there is only 1 surface lift. The place is developing though, and might offer more in the future, or even get connected to the surrounding valleys. Backcountry potential unknown.
Snow is likely from late November to March.
How to get there
If you are driving yourself: we have a map with the exact location of all ski resorts in Central Asia.
There is no public transport going to Edelweiss. We recommend the ski taxi – they also have a Swiss quality store of ski equipment for rent.
