Kazakhstan isn’t usually thought of as a freeski hotspot, but there’s one place you might have heard of. The Shymbulak resort in the heart of the Ile-Alatau National Park is home to Gorilla Chimba Park, and this weekend they’re hosting the annual Gorilla Winter Jungle Festival.

Things I expect from Winter Jungle this year: a sea of smiles, new people and radical young people who will get inspiration from the event and, possibly, pick up extreme sports. Our aim is to contribute to development of active sports in Kazakhstan!
