This season I’ve guided two trips into the mountains on the border of Georgia and Russia. Overwhelmed by the endless possibilities, but especially the endless hospitality of the Georgian people. Freeriding in Georgia should be on everybody’s list!
Ski lift accident Gudauri
By now everybody has seen the video about the Georgian ski lift that started to go backwards and the chairs crashing into each other at the bottom. I just stepped out of the lift minute before it happened. It’s a miracle nobody died and only so few people had injuries. What you probably didn’t hear about was the professional rescue mission afterwards to get the remaining people out of the lift. Respect for the local rescue helpers to get everybody out safely!
