Enjoy one or several days of freeride ski and/or ski touring in Gudauri or the nearby wild ski spots of the Caucasus Mountain Range.

Skiing for one or several days in Gudauri is an ideal option if you are traveling to Georgia for a short amount of time.

I will take you to the best skiing spots in Gudauri and surroundings, like  Mt. Sadzele (3300 m), Mt. Chrdilebi (2800 m) and Mt. Kudebi. 

The ski area of Gudauri is famous for its high slopes and also for being free of avalanches, which makes it a place safe for freeriding!

Furthermore, it has many chair lifts and a gondola so you’ll get easy access to the top of the best ski runs. We can then use the skins and go further where very few people go.

If you come for several days, you can stay at one of the several well-equipped hotels and lodges in the area.

Please send me a request if this program sounds interesting to you. I will be glad to take you for an amazing ski trip in Georgia!

When sending me the request, please specify the number of days during which you would like to be guided. Please specify also if you are looking for more freeride skiing or ski touring.

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.

I also propose a 7-day ski touring program that may be a great option in case you stay a little longer. I can also arrange some heliskiing!

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.

What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).

What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
