Situated in the very easternmost portion of Europe, tucked beneath Russia and above Turkey, Armenia and Azerbaijan, Georgia is an excellent winter sport destination. The country boasts outstanding snow conditions, the beauty of some of Europe’s highest peaks in the Caucasus mountain range, and a diverse and exciting culture.
The ski, and subsequently, splitboarding scene has been rapidly developing since the 1990s. Now there are four ski resorts in the country: Gudauri, the most famous, Mestia, in Svaneti, Bakuriani and the most recent, Goderdzi, in Adjara.
When you’re not out on the slopes, Georgia is famous for the laid back atmosphere of its people, a keen passion for food and wine. Georgia is an excellent destination to combine relaxation with adventure, one at a time of course.
Winters in Georgia are quite cold, with average daily temperatures between 2ºC and 4ºC. Temperatures tend to get colder at night as well as at higher elevations. There is usually plenty of snow at higher elevations by the time December comes around. Although there are still plenty of clear days.
Any trip to Georgia begins with a flight into Tbilisi International Airport (TBS). From here, most guides will opt to meet you and transport you to the start of your trip. Otherwise, buses are available that go to most of the popular mountain destinations.
