Welcome to Gudauri
Gudauri also offers good freeriding, and heliskiing with the Georgian-French company Heliksir. Ski touring is best in March and usually possible into May: one of Georgia’s top mountain guides, Irakli Kapanadze, organises trips for 100 GEL to 250 GEL per person per day from Tbilisi.
Public marshrutky from Tbilisi to Kazbegi will drop you in Gudauri (10 GEL, two hours) but you may have trouble finding one with free seats going down to Tbilisi. The central point of Gudauri is marked by the roadside Smart supermarket, which has an ATM.
