Georgia is at the intersection of Europe and Asia, a former Soviet republic it's home to the southern Caucasus Mountains with some of the highest peaks in Europe. Famous for it's red wine, amazing cuisine and warm hospitality. The ski resort of Gudauri is 120 km north of the Capital Tbilisi and boasts a modern ski lift system giving us access to high alpine terrain with plenty of short itinerary's to access untouched powder. Lift tickets are ridiculously cheap and the food and wine is world class.
This trip is all about exploring everything Gudauri has to offer. With snowshoes at our disposal we'll be prepared for anything. From morning snowshoe trips to the lesser known areas often ending with a local taxi ride back to resort, to afternoon resort laps exploring the endless side hit opportunities. As always the aim is pure and simple to ride as much powder as possible and explore as much of Gudauri's amazing natural terrain and hidden Valleys.
We'll be spending a night exploring the delights of Tbilisi staying at a small boutique Hotel in the old town surrounded by bars and restaurants. In Gudauri we'll be staying at Hotel Carpe Diem within 100m of the Ski Lift. This is a modern hotel with spacious twin rooms, a spa area with sauna's and a swimming pool and delicious, authentic Georgian food to refuel us after a long days riding.
Be prepared for a short boot packs most days, with one or two bigger days with around 600 vertical metres of hiking. A good level of fitness and a reasonable amount of powder riding experience is required to get the most out of the week.
