    :cool: Have had vague visions for a while of Uzbekistan after skiing Kamchatka - logistics and altitude don't make it easy though.
    MI-8's are pretty amazing machines.

    I skied Uzbek in 09. Early season I think it was November. Massive mountains and some great terrain. I met some Swiss guys that live there and guide through the mountains. Would love to go back and check that out.

    Their main resort had a face lift a few years ago and the lodge is lush. I have a post with some photos somewhere on the forum...

    UZB. has amazing old silk route cities and some decent skiing and trekking in mountains that easily exceed 3000 M.I went there in 2012.
