    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.

    Ilia is a great guide at every level you would expect from a guide when you are traveling abroad. He is very cautious, He takes time to explain and emphasis what are the safety requirements. He is young but knows already deeply the Caucasus mountains. He is friendly and fluent in English but most of all he consistently tries to find the best for his customers and to make them enjoy their stay. Long story short, I deeply recommend him to anyone expecting an unforgettable trip.
