Bakhmaro is one of the high-altitude tourist resorts in Georgia at around 1,900 meters. Many families from the surrounding area have a hut here and spend some time in the summer in the high valley. There is even a hotel (without heating) and a small number of guesthouses. In winter, Bakhmaro is uninhabited and it used to be not accessible.
Because of its snow reliability, Bakhmaro was already planned for an expansion as a ski resort in Soviet times. In 2007, a feasibility study was prepared by an Austrian consulting company, which emphasized the skiing potential of the place and in 2016/17 a masterplan for a year-round destination was prepared. However, nobody realised the freeride potential of this place until powderproject.ch came.
powderproject.ch has been the pioneers in Bakhmaro, the first who spend there a winter and the people who scouted and developed all tracks. Nobody knows the area as we do. We have been offering catskiing in Bakhmaro since 2016. We experience this place before the rush of tourists is destroying it. It has been a unique experience so far.
