BACKCOUNTRY SKIING / SPLITBOARDING GORGIA

Until very recently Georgia wasn't thought of as a top ski destination in Europe and the extensive area was shared by just a few locals and the occasional daring ski tourist. This slowly started to change over the last decade though and in the last few years interest has rapidly grown.  Now the word has spread and people are coming in from Europe and the rest of the world to see the amazing skiing Georgia has on offer.

This 2 week trip is a powder lovers dream. Expect to have to put in some leg work – after all the best lines are rarely free. In the area you can ride everything from cruisy powder bowls to steep couloirs and tree runs to cliff drops, ultimately if you like it steep and deep (or just deep!) this place will have frothing at the mouth with excitement.

Spend some time in the resort of Revelstoke taking advantage of the lifts for easy powder, plus head out of bounds under your own steam. The trip also includes a few days in a hut/lodge deep in the backcountry totally isolated from the real world, where the mountains will be your personal playground free to explore as far as your legs will take you.

As with any Snowbusters adventure, we won’t just guide you to the best lines, we also teach you the skills you need to stay safe and ride with more style. We’ll cover avalanche safety, practice rescue situations and address deficiencies in your technique.

The final itinerary depends on the conditions and weather. However, we’ll fit in some ski touring or splitboarding, cat-skiing, lift accessible off-piste both in- and out-bounds and, of course, squeeze in the time to down a few jars. We will visit the following areas:

 

GUDAURI

 

SVANETI

 

Join Snowbusters for a Canadian backcountry adventure in British Columbia. Your only regret will be why you didn’t visit sooner.
