Ski-Tatyr is located 25 km from Bishkek outside of the village Tatyr Strelnikova. It’s a small place targeted to families with their kids. 2 surface lifts and 2 easy slopes make the ideal learning environment for beginners. Instructors and ski rental are on-site. Prices are lower and crowds are small, so this is in my opinion a better option than Zil for the absolute beginner.
There are some benches outside for picknicking on a sunny day and a small cafe.
There is no public transport going to Ski Tatyr. Tour companies operate a ski taxi and equipment rental. We recommend the ski taxi – they also have a Swiss quality store of ski equipment for rent.
