Catski & Tour

7 Nights, 5-6 Ski Days, 07/03-14/03/2021 & 14/03-21/03/2021

Ski-Tour

Ski-Tour, powderproject, Lesser Caucasus
During the ski-tours we pass small in the winter abandoned alp villages.

Our new alp hut in Adjara is a nice base for ski-tours into the surrounding mountains. The remote location provides a backcountry atmosphere.

 

The mountains around the hut rise up to 2'755 meters (Sarkornia) and offer great ski-touring into April. The closed mountain is Wolfsbed with 2'614 meters.

 

As our base is already at 2'400 meters and the skiable slopes are going down to around 2'000 meters, the vertical drop is limited. However, with decents into the neighbouring valleys very interesting tours are opening up.  The round-tours have 2 or 3 hikes and allow 1'500 and more vertical meters as well.

Snowcat

The hut is located within the mountains so that the groups can start the tours directly from the house.

 

However, it is also possible to go by snowcat to an interesting starting point or the cat-drivers can pick-up the group on a more remote location after the tour. This way the group can increase the range of their tours significantly.

 

Depending on the snow and weather conditions, the group can also use the cat in the morning and join a half-day tour in the afternoon. On powderdays it is possible to book extra catskidays to enjoy more runs in fresh powder.


Also the snowcats provide additional safety for the groups as a pick-up is possible when the weather changes, somebody got injured or tired.

March

Freeride, Catski, March Powder
Untracked fresh powder in March, 2019.

March is considered a good powder month in Georgia. There is still a lot of snowfall and sometimes it can be very intense. However, when the sun comes out, it can get warm quickly.

 

Our remote hut in the mountains of Adjara offers snow until May. Very often the summer road is not opened before end of June. However, our access (for the transfer and the  supply of frersh food) over the mountains is depending on snowcover for the entire track. This is limiting our season to March.


In Adjara, we have many northern slopes that are protected from the sun and preserve good snow quality quite a while. With Sakornia (2'755m) we have slopes high up in the mountains that are accessible by snowcat. So, promising powder runs are still possible in March, as in the picture above from 04/03/2019.
