FAQs: Splitboarding in Georgia

What should I know about Splitboarding Georgia?

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.

Why should I choose Georgia for my Splitboarding adventure?

Stunning scenery

From the slopes of Mt Kazbek to the rolling and forested hills of the Svaneti region, Georgia is a beautiful country. Splitboarding gives you a unique opportunity to explore and trek through these landscapes before enjoying thrilling snowboarding descents into them.

Avoid the crowds

Unlike other popular European splitboarding destinations, you won’t be waiting in line for your turn to make some excellent runs in Georgia. The country is a much lesser known, but this is slowly changing. Avoid the more crowded resorts in the foothills and head out into the wilds for an immersive splitboarding experience.

Climb Mt Kazbek

Rising to 5.047 meters above sea level, Mount Kazbek is the third tallest mountain in Georgia and the seventh tallest in the Caucasus Range. It also makes for a delightful splitboarding challenge. Head up to the summit on skins and with a few other pieces of mountaineering equipment. Enjoy the stunning view. Then snowboard back down into the valley below.

What people are saying about Splitboarding | Georgia



We don 't have Ilia !!! I have been desapointed We Had maro..very good and Nata: she is too strict and her level is low.


Pre-Trip: Service from Explore-Share could have been better. What should have been a simple request with payments was badly dealt with. Taking automatic payments is a strange and unusual way of booking a guide. This was eventually dealt with though I had to argue for some time. Pre-trip support from guide could also have been better - getting an E-mail response on queries about the trip was not easy. I suggest a shared E-mail between the guide team would enable a better response capability if some guides are on the mountain etc. Although saying that, once in Svaneti we found even the most remote villages have Wi-Fi.... During the trip: Guide service was brilliant. Airport pick up was spot-on. Accommodation and food was great. There were two challenging aspects - the weather and the start of the Coronavirus issue. Guide team dealt well with both curve-balls (E.g. restaurants closing, and arranging slightly earlier return transport to Tbilisi). We had a great week, I would strongly recommend these guys to anyone visiting Georgia.



We had a fantastic trip in Svaneti with our guide Ilia who is a very professional and nice person. We were blessed by his kindness. He is a very patient, experienced and passionate person. Svaneti is a really beautiful region, wild and remote. I would advice staying more than a week as it takes quite some time to reach the mestia valley. The villages are vey harming and accommodation is quite good. There are thousands of ski tour possibilities and we were most of the time alone. Georgian people are great..and the food is fantastic ! I would definitively recommend the trip and our guide Ilia.



Last year, it was our first time we did a ski tour and Mikheil Nadiradze was a guide, who made our experience fascinating and memorable. He made sure to equieped us with proper equipment and he explained all details that helped us to raise awareness regarding ski touring and feel the all benefits of this process. I do recommend Mikheil as a great guide who can lead the tour in a fantastic maner.



Wonderful people with precise knowledge of the wild nature of Georgia, I recommend you go whenever you want to enjoy the deep snow, hospitable people and virgin snow where you can see as much as you can see with your own eyes.
