Gudauri, GeorgiaJust a 2-hour drive from the international airport of Tbilisi, Gudauri is the leading ski resort in Georgia. Nestled in the southern slopes of the Greater Caucasus range at an altitude of 2,000 m above sea level, this friendly and actively developing resort has become the most popular ski destination in Georgia, attracting snow enthusiasts from neighbouring countries and Western Europe. Gudauri sits in the heart of a magnificent alpine countryside offering vast snowfields, an abundant snow cover and plenty of sunshine.
The on-going infrastructure development and the touristic dynamism of the resort make it the most technically advanced district in the Caucasus for alpine skiing, at the present time. Spreading over the slopes of Mt Kudebi (3,007 m) and Mt Sadzele (3,307 m), the runs are above tree-line and serviced by 5 Dopplemayr chairlifts and one Pomagalski gondola lift. Part of the dynamic development occurring in Gudauri, the gondola lift was recently installed, with its base at the heart of the new resort centre. The impressive MULTIX-10 lift carries 72 cabins of 10 passengers and brings the skiers to an altitude of 2,700 m.
