The Skiing

The tour spends four nights in the largest ski resort in Georgia, Gudauri. Suitable for all ski abilities, the resort provides everything from endless untracked powder ski opportunities to perfectly groomed piste trails for beginners from its suite of modern lifts, including gondolas.

The Greater Caucasus in Georgia are deep in snow by mid-winter. Gudauri is the largest and highest ski resort in Georgia, and it continues to grow at a rapid pace. Mt. Sadzele (3,307 m) is accessed by lifts up to 3,279 m elevation. There are slopes of all difficulty levels for skiing and snowboarding and the slopes are FIS certified. The winter sports resort also lures visitors with its freeriding and heli-skiing opportunities. Large quantities of natural snow make the surrounding peaks on the border between Europe and Asia an ideal territory for powder enthusiasts. The winter sports resort is located on the Kreuz Pass, about 120 km north of Tbilisi (3hr drive). A modern ski resort for all types of skiing has developed here, in the middle of the Caucasus mountains away from mass tourism. Night skiing, cross-country trails, ski tours and snow tubing are also offered in Gudauri.
