Georgia is a cultural gem, the capital of Tbilisi is worth going for on its own.  If you mix that in with some incredible places to ride , you get to go on an unforgettable splitboarding adventure.

Since a planned 2020 split trip cancelled due to the pandemic we have been itching to get over there, and especially to this particular zone which has been on our radar for a while.  The time feels right and we are excited to finally visit the mountains of the Greater Caucasus in March 2024

The backcountry basecamp we have found for you is situated at 1,820 meters above sea level and has direct access to some fabulous splitboard touring routes.  The diversity of the terrain here was also a key factor for us in choosing it as a destination.  The highest elevation point accessible by splitboard is around 3,100 meters and the zone also has many options in both the forest and the alpine areas, so it gives us great options for riding, whatever the conditions might be.

Tree runs are plentiful for the bad weather days, technical steeps are abundant in the alpine for when the sun shines and long, mellow, home run powder fields lead us back to the camp.

As backcountry camps go this one is positively luxurious…

You’ll be staying in shared (2 person) two-layer winter modular tents which are heated individually with piping hot wood-burning stoves and storage / kit drying facilities.   The large camp dining tent has a full kitchen where your meals are freshly prepared each day (by the camp hosts) and your glasses constantly filled with Georgian wine, beer and ‘chacha’ (brandy)

This camp also has electricity, Wi-Fi and a steam room with a hot shower, it really is the most remarkable set up we’ve come across.

Our splitboard Georgia session  is for a maximum of 5 clients who will be led by splitboard guide Paul Verdier (UIAGM).   This means you will only make splitboard friendly ascents and descents on this trip.  It’s a pretty exclusive session and you will get to ride more interesting terrain as part of a small, tightknit splitboard only crew.
