Ski & Snowboard Georgia

Skiing & snowboarding in Georgia is going through an exciting period of expansion. Entirely new ski resorts and improving lift and piste infrastructure is creating new opportunities for Powderhounds to discover a fascinating part of the planet, and at some of the cheapest lift pass prices in the world.

Georgia Ski Areas & Resorts

Located in the Caucasus south of Europe's highest mountain, Mt Elbrus (5642m), ski resorts in Georgia have some impressive statistics. Georgia's largest & most popular ski resort is Gudauri in the Greater Caucasus, just north Tbilisi. Gudauri ski resort has a top elevation of 3250m and a 1250m skiable vertical. A modern lift infrastructure, 60km of piste, a longest piste trail of 7km & a lift ticket price less than 20USD make it a serious prospect. Gudauri has recently expanded its terrain again....... must get there to check it out.

Georgia can boast about having the newest ski resorts in Europe. North of Kutaisi near the historic town of Mestia below the 4858m Mount Tetnuldi, the , Tetnuldi ski resort has long piste trails, brand new lifts, 950m of skiable vertical, top elevation of 3160m, abundant freeride powder & very few people skiing it. To the south of the country in the snowy Lesser (or Little) Caucasus, the new resort of Goderdzi plans to triple its lift capacity in the next few years. There is talk of another resort development planned for near Bakhmaro.

Even more exciting than the ski resort developments, is the cat ski operation that has started in the Lesser Caucasus mountains at Bakhmaro. Established by a professional Swiss crew, Powderproject's Cat Skiing Bakhmaro delivers an exceptional experience for more adventurous skiers & snowboarders. Having run its first season in 2016/17, it has quickly come to terms with its superb terrain & is expanding every year.
