Uzbekistan Skiing 2020

Skiing in Uzbekistan – a photo odyssey!

 

Our photographer John E Fry was lucky enough to travel to Uzbekistan in February 2020 with a group of journalists to investigate what the country can offer to snow sport fans! The brand new resort of Amirsoy was where we spent most time, but also took trips to Boldersoy and Chimgan which are ex-soviet  ski areas, with chairlifts that are certainly not for the faint hearted!

 

The food was overall excellent, though not the variety that we are used to, and I think vegans would struggle. The hotels we stayed in had most things sorted well, although none had everything quite perfect, most noticeably internet access, bar the truly excellent new Hilton in Tashkent which is probably the best hotel I have ever stayed in anywhere!

 

Uzbek people speak Uzbek and Russian, with schools now teaching English in preference. The country is set on making tourism it’s biggest industry, which is obvious from the expanding efforts in Tashkent to cater for well healed travellers. More soon!
