Winter is coming! No kidding, it is really approaching. One of the most important things you should know about winter in our country is the fact that it boasts with great mountain resorts, where you can practice skiing and snowboarding, relax, get rid of stress and feel adrenaline rush, enjoy the snow and the sun, breathe fresh air, drink mulled wine – and all this at very reasonable prices. However, even the craziest fan of winter sports wants to take a break. That’s why I want you to know what else you could do next to the Georgian white resorts.
15th of January! Gosh, it’s exactly mid-winter, but seems like winter season in Georgia has just started. Even being not a super-skier, I am fascinated about the white resorts here: in December I have checked Gudauri and Mestia, and I can say that if you’ll manage to visit at least one of them, you will not regret. There is also Bakuriani, but as far as I didn’t visit it recently, I can’t tell you something experience-based. All the following infos are NOT an advertisement, but just impressions. So, if you need some advices, here you go!
Last Saturday there was Winter Season Opening in Gudauri. For me, as for a person who had never tried any winter activities except sledges, snowball battle and snowman construction, it was a good opportunity to start. Georgian National Tourism Administration organized several free shuttles to Gudauri from Tbilisi and Kutaisi, but normally you can take a minibus for about 10 lari, $5.5 / person).
