Description

The ski resort area of Gudauri in the Caucasus mountains of Georgia is a fantastic place to enjoy the snow.

Gudauri is full of variety. There is a great deal of wonderful peaks and spots to visit and enjoy. As a result, this trip is a full week long. This trip also offers opportunities to enjoy splitboard touring as well as off-piste snowboarding. The reason you can enjoy both of those activities is you will have access to the area’s ski lifts, while also getting the chance to leave the resort area and explore other nearby spots. Hence giving you a chance to hike through and explore the Caucasus mountains.

After your arrival at the Tbilisi airport, you will be picked up and brought to Gudauri. You will then be taken to your hotel, where you will spend the next 7 nights. The hotel is very comfortable and is equipped with a  bar. Hence providing you with the perfect place to relax and rest following a full day of splitboarding or off-piste snowboarding.

We will be visiting a number of different peaks during this trip. Some examples include the following.

  • Mount Sadzele (3,300m)

  • Mount Kudebi 

  • Kobi Pass (3,200m)

  • Mount Chrdilebi (2,800m)

  • Mount Miliona (3,200m)

  • The Dedaena (3,400m)

  • Mount Lomisa #1 (2,300m) and Mount Lomisa #2 (2,400m)

Gudauri is an amazing place to visit if you enjoy winter fun. And for a full week, I would like to guide you through this magnificent area. We can adapt the itinerary to all kinds of clients. To join me, all you have to do is send me a request. I look forward to hearing from you.

If I’m not available to guide you, one of my 3 teammates, all of them GMGA mountain guides, will be happy to do so.

We had a great week in Gudauri! We did have a replacement for Ilia (Vano), but Vano was really great. Skied some awesome slopes and made it back safe every time. The hotel and food were great as well. We also liked that we didn't just ski but also met some of the locals on the way, for example the caretaker of an old church on top of the mountain we walked up. So we can recommend this one!

Both explore share and Ilia have been super helpful into making this trip. Explore share team has been super friendly and helpful and Ilia team has been very supportive and skilled. Highly recommended.

Due to the weather we had to break off our trip half way. Too bad. The response time of Explore-Share could be improved. Apart from that, good service. Ilia couldn't come last minute, but send Bekar as replacement guide. He was an excellent guide and very pleasant person to be with.

Snow conditions were challenging and our guide did an excellent job finding the local powder! I would recommend this trip to anyone and I would highly recommend a LOCAL guide. They know the lay of the land and I think our trip was very successful due to their local knowledge compared to some of the other groups we saw with non-local guides.

Ilia together with his colleague Giorgi were the best guides we could have wished for. Not only showing us great skiing and ski touring spots but also introducing us to the Georgian life.
