DETAILS & TIMETABLE after SIGNING UP. it is ver ESSENTIAL that you get in contact before you book your flights.
Bakhmaro is about 60 km east from the black sea, on the north side of the little Kaukasus. The village is located on the foot of the Meskheti Range with highest peak of 2755 Meter. The village sits at around 2000 Meters and is one of the higher holiday places of Georgia.
Because of the big snowfalls the Sowjet already considered to do a Ski area there. Probably most of the Mountains and Runs have never been ridden before.
A big advantage of the little Kaukasus are the big dumps at the beginning of the season and the constant snowfalls. Beginning of the winter usually a lot of snow is falling what gives us a rideable snowpack from end of November.
A modern Snowcat with a heated cabin on the back, as well as ski doo will be our way of transport and ascents during this trip. The Cat will bring us several times per day up to the start of the runs. From there we will either way drop in straight or take the effort to hike a little higher to get ever more Joy out of the run. The local team will do everything to make sure the cat is bringing us to the Magic Runs of Bakhmaro.
We will be directly in Bakhmaro at 2000 Meters in a local Accommodation. Georgian Meals. Breakfast, Lunchbox & Dinner. The rest will be surprise.
At the Catboarding Trip in Bakhmaro you should be safe on your Board and it should not be the first time freeriding for you. Also a basic body condition for medium ascents on splitboard should be ok with you. Riding Level 2-3. In order to enjoy the challenging but safe runs you should bring basic freeride skills with you.
On this Trip we will mainly do ascents with the Snowcat to the runs which are reachable. Depending on terrain & motivation, we will decide weather to do split hikes in order to get to interesting new terrain where the cat can not go. Also for general safety we will always ride with splitboards so we have the skins with us at any time. Do not forget this is wild terrain with no Ski Patrol, so we need to be able to react in any situation.
The Flight to KUTAISI is separate and NOT INCLUDED.
From the airport we will have van & Snowcat transport until Bakhmaro to our accommodation ( transfer inclusive)
