The Times of Central Asia is reporting that the Amirsoy ski resort, touted as Uzbekistan’s first world-class resort, is expected to open to guests this December.

Project work, which is being managed by Andorran firm PGI Management, will continue after it opens; when completed, the resort will be around 900 hectares in size and consist of ski slopes totalling approximately 21 km in length, seven cable cars (to be constructed by Doppelmayr), chair lifts from SunKid, a snowboard park, sports school and residential buildings. The total cost of the project is estimated at over €100 million.

Two ropeways with a length of over 3 km, an artificial snow making system from TechnoAlpin, a helipad, two artificial lakes and ski slopes of 12.3 km in length are the key elements of infrastructure expected to be ready in time for the resort’s opening.

The Uzbek Deputy Prime Minister, A. Abduhakimov, has visited the construction site and was shown where the upper station of the gondola system will be located, at 2292 m. Launch tests for two cable cars are planned for next month.
