2023 Mestia Program

 

  Explore the amazing ski resorts and backcountry areas of Mestia, an ancient town in northern Georgia, known for its beautiful views of the surrounding Caucasus mountains and the many medieval Svan towers dotted around the landscape. This is an area that receives a lot of snow and is relatively unknown by most Westerners.

  This will be an 11-day program, with 8 nights staying in Mestia, working with local guides and our own experienced guides. There will be 7 on-snow days and comprehensive avalanche safety training included (for groups exploring the off-piste areas). We will finish the trip with 2 nights and a full day of exploring the capital of Tbilisi.

Suitability

This trip is suitable for advanced and expert skiers and boarders.

 

 

Trip Focus

  Groups can choose from a guided experience where the focus is on finding as much untouched snow as possible. Hiking and touring will be necessary to be able to increase the chances of finding better snow. Guests can also choose our skier or boarder improvement camp (same price as the guided experience). There we will be working on technique, inbounds, within the resort.

 

  It is strongly recommended to put together your own private group of 4 people so that you have your own cohesive group which does not need to be added to by TAP. We welcome individuals or non-complete groups but please note that we cannot guarantee the compatibility of a group that is not private.
