5 Fantastic Alternative Ski Destinations (PHOTOS)

Posted: 01/27/11 08:57 AM ET

The ski season is finally upon us. For anyone with an addiction to glistening powder, this means the race to attach yourself to skis or board has begun. But instead of traipsing to resorts jammed with tourists, here at Black Tomato we like to find our own little private patch of snowy paradise to perfect our stance.

Introducing our shortlist of the top 5 alternative (and in our humble opinion, pretty exceptional) ski resorts for a more fulfilling snow fix.

Tien-Shan Mountains, Kyrgyzstan
1 of 6
Slap bang in the heart of central Asia, this one of the most mountainous countries in the world (90% of its territory is rippled with mountains). A heli-skiers dream, head to the north to the Tien-Shan Mountains for magnificent drops and vast glaciers.
