Group travel experience

Gudauri was a perfect place to ski. It’s about a 2 hour drive from Tbilisi. I would recommend a ski in ski out hotel or apartment. I felt very safe here! Ski pass was cheap, as was ski rental. If you want to go to the drunk cherry (popular restaurant) for dinner, book well in advance.
