On the other hand, the disadvantages of the Georgia’s ski resort are highlighted as well. "Skiing in the evening is possible only once in a week and only on easy route. If you decide to hire equipment, be sure to check carefully.

There are not many nightclubs and café-bars in Gudauri . The nightlife lovers might get a little bit bored there.

The service is not quite ideal, but the hospitality of Georgian people compensates it”, - Reports the website.
