Announcement: Video Premiere
Season Start Bakhmaro
We opened the season in Bakhmaro today with the first ski tour!
With 40cm of fresh snow and a good foundation, the conditions are already great. Our first ski tour led towards Chedrekili and into the forest. With low temperatures and no wind effects, the snow was super fluffy. A perfect start to the 2023/24 season! In a month we will have the first group in Bakhmaro and they can look forward to a good foundation.
... more snow
Bakhmaro is currently experiencing a significant onset of winter. It snowed a good 20cm last night and there will be a lot more in the next few days.

First snow in Bakhmaro
It is normal to have snow in October. We will get some sunny days again and acctually we need them to finish our preparations. However, for now all works came to an end. End of the week we will be hopefully able to continue with our work. The road to Bakhmaro is still open.
Workshop for our drivers and mechanics
Since we started in 2016, we have been conducting training for our employees on site. In addition to the search for the best powder, our motivation has always been to create good-paying jobs in this remote mountain region. This year we once again held a 4-day training course with experts from Germany in our hangar in Chkhakoura. Our drivers and mechanics learned a lot during this time, we were able to solve a few problems with our machines and wrote another long shopping list for spare parts.
How good we are is demonstrated by how many people try to copy us, follow our cattracks or poach our trained staff.
First snow in the mountains
Hotel Suggestion Kutaisi
Our hotel recommendation for extra nights in Kutaisi is the Newport Hotel. Just a few steps from the Colchis Fountain (Agmashenebeli Square), the hotel is within walking distance
of the Rioni River, the city center and the bazaar. A number of good restaurants can also be easily reached in a few minutes.
Newport Hotel Kutaisi is a modern hotel housed in a historic 19th-century building. The hotel has 34 rooms, a 24-hour reception, a restaurant, a bar and a rooftop terrace with great views of the city.
In order to avoid time-consuming pick-up procedures upon arrival, we will only start the transfers to Bakhmaro from this hotel in Kutaisi city. Pick-up will take place in the early afternoon.
Prices per night:
The booking can be made through us.
Flight Schedule 2023/24
We updated the flight schedule of Wizzair. Usually from September, there are not many changes anymore. That also means that it is time to book flights now. In particular for the Christmas holidays, we recommend to book flights early.
There are more flight connections with Wizzair directly to Kutaisi. These are just the most comfortable and relevant ones.
For overnight stays we will make a hotel recommendation. It saves everyone a lot of time, if we have to pick up just from one hotel.
