Georgia in winter – a new holiday experience
Spring, summer and autumn, these are the main tourist seasons in Georgia. But have you ever thought about visiting in winter and hit the ski slope? Here we present you four places to give you a reason to spend your next winter holiday in Georgia.


Gudauri


Only 120 kilometers away from Tbilisi, this popular ski resort in the heart of the Caucasian Mountains attracts more and more foreigners, mainly from Russia, Ukraine and Poland. The spa town is situated at an
altitude of 2,200 m above the sea level and is spoiled with sun. You can count on over 70 kilometers of ski slopes that cover the hillsides of two three-thousanders, namely Mount Kudebi and Mount Sadzele. The powder-snow of Gudauri attracts not only tourists but professional riders too. Consequently, the World Freestyle and Snowboard Championship 2023 will be held there.

Gudauri offers plenty of hotels and apartments as well as restaurants, bars and some night clubs. Of all ski resorts in Georgia, this is the best known and the best developed one with more cable cars and slopes being built each year.

Bakuriani


Smaller than Gudauri, Bakuriani offers 30 kilometers of slopes and a dozen lifts. Together with Gudauri, it will be co-host of the World Freestyle and Snowboard Championship in 2023. In recent years, the Mountain Resort Development Company has invested heavily in rebuilding the infrastructure.

Also, many new hotels have recently opened. Bakuriani-area is known for its cold winters so the snow remains for 4-5 months. A further fact that might make you warm up to this ski resort: the slopes are mostly surrounded by forest, which guarantees a specific experience of nature.


Mitarbi


Only few kilometers away from Bakuriani, the slopes of Mitarbi are waiting advanced winter sport enthusiasts. Slopes are difficult but all the more adventures. The beautiful ski resort with 3 lifts is located 2,300 m above the sea level. There are plans to connect Mitarbi slopes with those of Bakuriani.

Goderdzi


Incredible six months long is the snowy season in Goderdzi. This is even more surprising as the ski resort is within an easy distance of 110 kilometers away from Batumi at the Black-Sea Riviera. Goderzi is the youngest ski resort in Georgia and with its two lift still something of a rough diamond. However, as the numbers of tourists in Georgia are going through the roof, this might change in no time.
