What's it like at Bakuriani resort?

Bakuriani is situated 29 km from Borjomi at 1700-2000 m above the sea level in the sub-tropical zone. The snow blanket remains for 4-5 months but in the summer the aroma of the coniferous trees and other climatic factors create ideal conditions for rest and recreation. It is a paradise for ski lovers and an internationally important winter sports centre, which meets Olympic standards. Many international athletes come here to practice their skills. It is also a superb venue for children to take their first steps in winter sports; ideal for families and popular among the young generations. Ropeways, ski-jumps, ski-tracks, cross-country skiing, horse-rides, horse-drawn sledges and snowmobile ;all can be found in Bakuriani. The surrounding mountains offer numerous possibilities for both challenging and scenic mountain mobile trips as for example up and down Kohkta Gora (2,150 m. above the sea level) or the road from Bakuriani to Tabatskuri Lake via Tskhra-Tskaro Pass (2,454 m. long distance).

Been to multiple ski resorts all over the world . It is by far one of the worst ski resorts I’ve been to. Cars everywhere, too many hotels/holiday residence compared to what capacity the lift system has. The naked mountaintops you see on pictures is for real. High wind is an issue and also causes the close down of the lift system frequently.

The only reason I can see they have so many guests here must be old habits and easy road access from Tbilisi. Not for cheap price level. For Georgian references it is expensive. Sorry, but giving it points for being a ski resort it can be at best 1. That's for having some ok functional lifts and nothing else.
