New Area - untracked slopes

In 2016 we discovered Bakhmaro and then opened it up. We then set up a backcountry hut in Adjara - remote and only for one group.

We scouted the new area years ago. It is definitely suitable for cat skiing. There are tree runs, open slopes and lots of snow!

Accommodation

We won't know what the accommodation will look like in detail before summer or autumn. Please expect a simple mountain hut. Maybe we will use our containers again. Despite the simple accommodation, we will take care of your comfort.

Some of the rooms for 2 to 5 people can be equipped with bunk beds.

We will deploy our bathroom containers with 3 full, tiled bathrooms. Of course, we will also take care of the hot water supply and electricity.

Alignment

A new area means a lot of adventure and uncertainties. Therefore, the freeriders involved should be able to draw on sufficient experience.

 

It makes sense to carry skins in your backpack. Since the area is undeveloped, there are no guides who know their way around. Surprises are possible. We will explore the area during the season.

Accommodation is inevitably basic. We are currently planning to have 2 groups in parallel. Last but not least, this increases safety.

The culinarical well-being is also well taken care of. We have a local team of chefs and kitchen assistants who prepare fresh food every day.

In the morning there is a rich breakfast including muesli, fresh fruit, egg dishes, homemade bread and local specialties. We take a lunch box for lunch so that we don't lose a lot of food during the day. On bad weather days we can always come to the hut and warm up with a hot soup.

Typical Georgian dishes are then cooked in the evening. Georgian cuisine is hearty and varied. Meals come on the table in bowls and plates, so everyone can take what they like.
