Catski & Tour

7 Nights, 5-6 Ski Days, 07/03-14/03/2020

Catski

In March Pioneers of Bakhmaro will organize a combined week with 3 days of catskiing. Pioneers of Bakhmaro selects the best days. If it's fresh snow the group uses the cat for a freeride day to do as many lines as possible in untracked snow. In less desirable weather, the group goes into the trees and rides incomparable treeruns. 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.


The cat is also available on the tour days for individual rides. So the guide can increase the range of the tours significantly.

Ski-Tour

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. As our base is already at 1'900 meters, we will do tours of up to 800 vertical meters at a time.

 

There are some interesting round tours with 2 or 3 hikes and 1'500 and more vertical meters as well. One of them is the high valley of Meria Keli with its nice alp village or the backside of Buksieti with the alp village of Zoti Keli with its steel bridges.

 

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. Also the snowcats provide additional safety for the groups.

March

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.


In Bakhmaro, there are many northern slopes that are protected from the sun and Sakornia (2'755m) has slopes that are accessible by snowcat. So, promising powder runs are still possible in March, as in the picture above from 04/03/2019.
