DEEP POWDER

Experience required.

If you are thinking about booking this trip, please don't overestimate your skills. Mainly if you have limited freeride experience.

Riders need advanced freeride skills to ride all types of snow (including hard and wet snow). You have to have the strength to climb out of a stream bed or dig yourself out of deep snow. Last but not least, you need the necessary self-confidence to ski on fast or steep slopes occasionally.

This trip is for sporty riders who ski/board very confidently and who are safe on any terrain. They must also be confident carrying skins in their rucksacks and are happy to accept ascents of up to 500 meters in altitude to reach extraordinary lines.

EXPECT SNOW

And potential bluebird days.

Adjara in Georgia is a high-snowfall region of the Lesser Caucasus due to its proximity to the Black Sea.

Snowfall is abundant in early winter and decreases through January with more sunny days as the season progresses.

Eat. Sleep. Ski.

The accommodation hut is a remote mountain sanctuary located deep in the mountains. To reach it, you need to roam the hills by snowcat from the nearest road.

The lodge is located on a ridge at 2,400m, in an alpine zone, with excellent skiing straight from your door. The accommodation is simple; warm, cozy, and equipped with bunk-bed bedrooms, toilets, showers, a common area, dining space, kitchen, plus a living room with jaw-dropping views of the valley.

Cat Skiing in the mountains around Bakhmaro ranges in elevation from 1,800m to 2,755m. Above 2,100m, the mountains are tree-free.

The summit's size vary from 2,500 & 2,755m. However, the higher elevations are often wind-blown. Most of the skiing is between 1,800 to 2,300m. Each individual run is between 300 & 800m vertical in altitude.

'Japan-like' quality tree skiing runs on well-pitched slopes, and trees are abundant between 1800m - 2100m elevation.

It varies depending on the length of each run and the group's physical condition, but most groups average 12 runs per day.
