“Very nice place”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

I visited Shymbulak even though it was not the ski season and i really enjoyed it, just wen to have lunch at the mountain and the view is beautiful. Access is really easy and the gondola lift is very nice, you go over the Medeu skating ring.

“Wonderful views, lots of action!”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

Medeu near the former capital Almaty is located high in the montains and offers magnificient views and is a good spot for a weekend-getaway. Though I did not try skating myself, watching other people was fun. Enjoy nature, views and fresh air there!

If you like active outdoor recreation that's the place for you. Just make sure that you dressed warm enough and actually know how to ski =)
