Part Travel, Part Misadventures, Part Documentary
Miles and miles of powder and the highest ridges in Europe; skiing in Georgia, whether it is Gudauri or Mestia is a heaven for skiers and adventure enthusiasts who do not simply want to pay the high prices of skiing in the Alps. I was smitten by the Himalayas and little did I know that the Caucasus mountains are considered a continuation of the Himalayas where the Arabian tectonic plate collides with the Eurasian plate.
A ski trip in the Caucasus mountains of Georgia takes you to endless pistes and provides high-quality free-riding experience. After 20 years of the Soviet Union collapse, Georgia strives hard to shake itself up and offer some of the most stunning and wild landscapes. If you’re a beginner like me who does not want to spend your money on some expensive ski lessons, equipment and prefer an English speaking instructor, places like Gudauri offer the best introductory course to ski lessons and ride some high mountains with unbelievable views.
