A range of options is available for skiing enthusiasts in Adjara. At an altitude of 2000 – 2500, the climate is humid here, winter relatively cold and long while summer is short and cool. In the highlands of Adjara construction of ski resorts are undergoing intensively. They are not only suitable for winter sports aficionados but offer healthcare and recreational conditions on all seasons of the year. Ski resort ‘Goderdzi’, located 2350m above sea level, has already been opened, receiving over 20 000 guests per year.
Winter stands out by heavy snowfalls here, which stay on the ground until the end of March. January is the coldest month and August-the warmest on the resort. Goderdzi is one of the ‘youngest’ ski resorts in Georgia which was officially opened by the ‘Mountain Resorts Development Company’ on December 5, 2015. Because Goderdzi is
abundant in the snow, the skiing season opens relatively early and ends late, compared to other ski resorts. Beautiful views, clean air, well-groomed skiing trails attract many skiers. Amongst those, who are keen on crossing unmarked snow, the untouched, snowy slopes of the resort evoke excitement. The ski season starts on Goderdzi in early December. Its ski-trail length is 8 km, with two types of cable roads-one with a cab that accommodates 8 people and another a bubble which takes in 6 people. You can rent a ski, a sled or a snowboard here, as well as an instructor’s service.
Soon the resort will accommodate 7000 skiers, allowing services at comfortable winter cottages, and hotels. Visitors will be able to enjoy good infrastructure, and cable cars there. The season on the resort continues even after the snow melts. Summers are for hiking, horse riding, and cycling here. In case of pre-order one can enjoy paragliding as well. Close by the resort, there is a favourite place of hikers – Green Lake. Apart from Goderdzi other mountain resorts such as Gomarduli, Qedlebi, and Beshumi will provide cordial hospitality to their guests as well.
