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).
