The ZiL Ski Resort is located 35 km from Bishkek in a beautiful scenic location, at an altitude of 1850 above sea level. The resort is one of the top places for skiing for both Kyrgyz and foreign visitors. There are five different ski lifts operating in the resort. There are also three cafes, a hotel complex with nineteen rooms with well-developed infrastructure, ski equipment rental, and first-aid post. A glacier called Kentor is located 5 km from the ski resort, sitting at an altitude of 3500 meters. If a ski lift were to be built on this glacier, it would be possible to ski here all year round, as opposed to only December through March.
