Type of Trip
I invite you to join me on a 7-day guided freeride skiing and ski touring trip in Gudauri, suitable for all levels.
This ski center located in the Southern plateau of the Caucasus Mountain Range in Georgia. The area is characterized by its high slopes, completely above the tree line. Gudauri is also famous for being a place free of avalanches, giving freeriders the safest ski experience.
Gudauri offers a good system of hotels and lodges where you can rest and relax after intense freeride skiing and ski touring days. All of them are equipped with sauna, gym and bar.
Moreover, the ski resort has 7 chair lifts and a gondola to take you to the top of the best ski runs. Besides, as if it wasn’t enough, heliskiing is also available in this region.
If you’re interested in this trip, please find below a day-by-day program I have prepared for you. Any item can be adapted to your wishes and expectations.
As you can read on this description, the trip I propose has a wide variety of routes and activities. Adding all my experience and my training as a professional guide in Georgia, I can guarantee one of the best ski experiences of your life.
Please get in touch with me if you want to join me on this freeride skiing and ski touring trip in Gudauri. You can send me a request and we can start planning for an unforgettable ski tour.
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.
If you have less than 6 days time, you can hire me for one or several days to go exploring the best spots of Gudauri and its surroundings. You can check this tour here: Gudauri freeride and ski touring with a guide.

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.
You’ll arrive to your hotel in Gudauri after driving for 2 hours from the airport of Tbilisi. Overnight staying in that hotel, which will be our base during the trip.
