A nice round-tour down to the abandoned alp village of Zoti Keli.

In March Pioneers of Bakhmaro offers a combined week with snowcat supported ski-touring.

 

Spring is the best time to experience the silence and untouched nature of the remote mountains around Bakhmaro.

 

The mountains rise up to 2'755 meters. Bakhmaro is already at 1'900 meters. So from the lodge tours of up to 800 vertical meters at a time are possible. There are also some interesting round tours with 2 or 3 hikes and 1'500 and more vertical meters.

Snowcat

Bakhmaro 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 the 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

March-Pow, Freeriding, No tracks

Spring is the best time to experience the silence and untouched nature of the remote mountains around Bakhmaro.

March is considered a good powder month in Georgia and there can always be heavy snowfalls. But of course the sun is already strong in March. With the combination of freeriding and ski tour we can make the best of the weather.

If we then leave Bakhmaro in mid-March, there is still so much snow that the transport is only possible with piste bullies. The access road to Bakhmaro is usually not cleared until May.
