    This 11-day Georgia ski touring program will take you skiing to an extraordinary country.

    This amazing program is designed for you to explore new and remote slopes, as well as to experience a different culture. Georgia is set right on the border between Europe and Asia. Plus, it was part of the Soviet Union until 1991. So its traditions and culture are quite different to what Western people are used to.

    I’ll guide you to the slopes and also around the towns we visit so that you can get a glimpse of the Georgian culture. You’ll arrive to Tbilissi airport and I’ll pick you up for a 2-hour drive north to the Gudauri ski resort area, from where we’ll start our ski trips. We’ll ski for 8 straight days in the Mount Kazbek and Juta massif area.

    We’ll also visit monasteries and meet with local people. And the day before leaving you’ll have free time to visit the magical Tbilissi, Gerogia’s capital city.

    So please contact me if you wish to experience this 11-day Georgia ski touring program. You’ll have the opportunity to discover this beautiful culture while skiing Georgia’s amazing peaks!

    About the Guide

     
     

    Originally I'm from Altai, a little-known Siberian mountain region. I grew up and developed as a sportsmen and guide in Altai and the Tian-Shan mountains. Since 2010, I live in St. Petersburg and work a lot in the Caucasus region.

    Since 2011 I am learning in the Rus­si­an Moun­tain Guides As­so­ci­ation (RMGA), under auspices of the As­so­ci­ation of Ca­na­dian Moun­tain Guides (ACMG). In 2015 I passed the Ap­pren­tice Ski Guide exam.

    My main work des­tin­a­tions are Russian and CIS mountain regions as Altai, Khibiny, Tian-Shan, Kamchatka and all Caucasus. I specialize in ski tour and climbing projects in uncommon mountain regions of Russia and CIS.
