Gudauri is a mountain ski resort situated on a south-facing plateau of the Greater Caucasus Mountain Range in Georgia, 2,200 m above sea level. Its skiable area enjoys the maximum exposure to the sun, which makes Gudauri a magnificent all-year-round tourist destination. In winter, visitors enjoy skiing in addition to a vast range of alternative outdoor activities. Skiers of all levels can find impressive opportunities for slalom, giant slalom, and downhill skiing, and even the world famous heli-skiing, for those who love to indulge in extreme challenges. Here, the mountain slopes are covered with snow for 4-5 months, from December to late April, and provide great opportunities for snowboarding. The average snow depth on these slopes reaches 2.5 m. The total length of Gudauri ski runs exceeds 57 kilometres and meets the highest international standards. The slopes are accessible via several platter lifts, moving carpets, chairlifts, and a cabin lift. In Gudauri, the base lift is situated over 2,200 meters above sea level and the top lift is at 3,285 meters. Children can have lots of fun at playgrounds that can be found in the village near the hotels, or use moving carpets and take private or group ski lessons at ski schools. Tubing is one of the non-ski activities that can be found in Gudauri. In summer, the resort takes on a whole new life as a fabulous sightseeing destination – with crisp fresh air, superior areas for horse-riding, mountain biking, hiking, bird watching, etc. The comfortable hotels of Gudauri offer all the necessary amenities for arranging regional and international conferences, trade shows, expos, seminars, and workshops.

Visitor Reviews of Gudauri
DP from United Kingdom writes:
Visited Gudauri in late December 2019, taking a flight to Kutaisi and renting a jeep for a 4 hour journey. The winter has been relatively mild and there was barely any snow on the slopes and so no skiing. We spent our time hiking and eating delicious Georgian food, which saved the overall experience.
It seems that the resort is still in the early stages of development and infrastructure like snow cannons not fully functioning (due to water shortages?). Awful lot of construction going on as well.
We will try to come back later in the season when there is more snow to get a more complete experience.
