Off-piste skiing in Georgia - Gudauri - Caucasus

Dates : Saturday, March 9 to Sunday, March 17, 2019

i

The highlights : Accommodation in a comfortable 4* hotel

                        The quality of the snow.  Powder snow guaranteed in February and March.

                            A standout feature is that, in comparison with other resorts that we travel to, almost no-one skis off-piste in Georgia, therefore virgin snow and

                            untracked runs will be almost exclusively ours.

Off-piste skiing and ski trekking in the powder of the Georgian Caucasus

i

Gudauri is a ski resort situated just 2 hours from the international airport of Tbilisi.  It is the principal ski resort of Georgia.  Nestled on the southern slopes of the Caucasus Mountains at an altitude of 2,000 meters, Gudauri lies in the heart of a magnificent alpine landscape which offers vast snow fields, abundant snowfalls and remarkable amounts of sunshine.

i

Constructed on the slopes of Mt Sadzele which summits at 3300 meters the ski lifts operate between 2000 and 3300 meters.  The pistes offer a superb view of nearby Mt Kazbek at 5033 meters.  This resort has many great possibilities for off-piste skiing and ski trekking using a combination of ski lifts and skins.

i

In addition, as is often the case in these areas, the off-piste and ski trekking itineraries are infrequently used by the local skiers and this allows us to benefit from the vast, unrestricted tracks of virgin snow.

i

We can also, depending on the weather and snow conditions, move by minibus to other neighboring valleys to enjoy the beautiful opportunities for ski trekking or heli-skiing from typical villages which have preserved their local culture.
