Skiing and snowboarding in Georgia

 

Ten years ago, skiing in Georgia was a well-kept secret known by only a handful of locals and the most adventurous ski vagabonds. This is rapidly changing as the Georgian ski hype spreads throughout Europe and the rest of the world, so it seems about time to write a comprehensive guide to everything you need to know about skiing in Georgia!

 

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.
