School Ski Trips to Gudauri, Georgia 

Our school ski trips to Georgia is an amazing opportunity for skiers. This destination is unconventional and adventurous compared to The French Alps. Ideal for large groups providing a tremendous amount of scope for all ski abilities and après options.

Nestled into the Greater Caucasus Mountain Range and drenched in sunshine throughout the ski season. At 2,196m the resort itself is higher than some of its better-known neighbours. Gudauri’s slopes lie above the tree line, offering consistent free riding over its 50km of runs. Don’t let that modest number put you off: queues are non-existent on the rich powder slopes with midweeks feeling like they belong only to your school group. Night skiing on weekends brings the locals in from Tbilisi with hotels and restaurants becoming lively Thursday through to Sunday evening.

Gudauri is located two hours’ drive via coach from Tbilisi, which, itself boasts too many charms to forbid a skiing experience only. Stop off for a night at least in this charming capital’s Old Town where sulphur baths and medieval sightseeing will cap off an unforgettable trip to this inviting country.

Dare to be different? If so, visiting one of Eastern Europe’s best kept secrets should make your shortlist for the next school ski trip.
