First bookings for the 2024/25 season

01/04/2024

We have confirmed the first bookings for the 2024/25 season.

First-time repeaters have the opportunity to rebook again in the same week. After that, we will begin offering the remaining weeks to new drivers.

In the 2024/25 season we will offer our hotel - The PIONEERS - mainly for groups and the Riders Lodge for individual bookings. In addition to these two own accommodations, we will again rent a guest house as a Bakhmaro Base.

In Adjara we will again have Wolfsbed Hut as our backcountry hut and project X as our back-to-the-roots catski location. We are also working on a new project: Beech Club.

Team Ski Training

24/03 - 27/03/2024

On tour with the Bakhmaro Ski Club

After Goderdzi Pass and Mestia we went to Gudauri this year. 3 days of ski training and end of the season for all team members who want to learn or improve skiing. So we have some nice days when we can enjoy the mountains ourselves as skiers.


There are always friends from Bakhmaro there too. Of course, the youngsters don't miss out either.

End of Season

16/03/2024

We usually close our cat ski operations in mid-March. This year March 16th was the last day with skiing and even some fresh snow.

We can offer freeriding in Bakhmaro with a clear conscience until mid-March. Afterwards you need a little luck for good snow. This year the following week would have been really good. But you only know that in retrospect.

We would like to thank all the freeriders who visited us and all our cooperation partners for the good cooperation.

I would like to thank the whole team for once again making a freeride season with many highlights possible. The eighth season is now history for us.

First Group

13/12/2023

The catski season started with the first group in Bakhmaro on December 13th. Only one group is still out in the area.

The weather at the start of the season didn't quite cooperate and this is the picture from December 14th, when the group had the best conditions at Sarkornia.

Announcement: Video Premiere

Right after winning the Worldchampionship in Slopestyle in Bakuriani, Marcus Kleveland accompanied by Jesper Tjäder visited us in Bakhmaro. It was a pleassure and honor to have these world class riders in our powder paradise...
Thanks to Red Bull Georgia and George Kotetishvili for organising this trip.
On 17th of December is premire of the video they shot in Bakhmaro, Guria.

Season Start Bakhmaro

28/11/2023

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

17/11/2023

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

09/10/2023

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

23/09/2023

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

09/09/2023

Above 2'400 meters we received the first snow of the season. Temperatures droped significantly over the past days. For sure we will get a nice late summer again. For middle of September Metoblue shows more sunshine and higher temperatures again.
The small snowfield in the middle of the pic is still snow from last winter.
We are exited and continue our preparations for the upcoming winter...

 

Hotel Suggestion Kutaisi

09/09/2023

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:

  •     Single room with breakfast: € 75,-
  •     Double or twin room with breakfast: € 85,-

The booking can be made through us.

Flight Schedule 2023/24

02/09/2023

Updated 02/09/2023. Changes of the flight schedule are possible.
Updated 02/09/2023. Changes of the flight schedule are possible.

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.
