The trend in the world of winter sports today is such that the prospect of opening new resorts with interesting routes and at the same time a small number of people, low prices and unbelievably beautiful panoramic views is almost unrealistic. Such places can occur in units over decades.

Tetnuldi is certainly at the moment one of such places where a small number of people, a small cost, a completely unique authentic world around, fabulous views from the magic kingdom at 360 degrees, when you climb, you always look at the giant Tetnuld, rising directly above your head, and when downhill you go straight to one of the most beautiful mountains of the Caucasus - Ushba.

In Tetnuldi, we managed to combine two chips - the absolute authenticity of the place and modern technologies for designing a ski resort

A couple of years will pass and Tetnuldi will be loaded with crowds of people who, of course, will bring here the fuss from which sometimes they so want to escape.

So, what do we have today.

First of all, this is a cult place for freeride fans.

Freeride in the resort area - available directly from the cable cars. The relief is very interesting - there are steep slopes, fields and small counterclones, and a forest.

The resort’s capabilities in this regard are guaranteed to be of interest to many: from beginner riders to confident skiers. The relief combines a forest zone, a rarity for freeriding in Georgia and wide fields and cool slopes and awesome panoramic views.

For lovers of ski tours Svaneti is an absolutely special topic ...

Frankly, such a vastness is difficult to find, somewhere, for such affordable money. First of all, of course, Tetnuld himself. Of course, our company strongly recommends going on such a trip with a local guide. At your request, we will select the most experienced for the group (the service is not included in the tour price and, if desired, is paid additionally)

Now about the technical details

  • The beginning of the cableway 1800 m above sea level. The highest point is 3150 m. The total length of the tracks is 25 km. Altitude difference: 900 meters. The descent from the very top of the resort is quite long - about 9 km.

Graduation of the tracks will help to distribute your friendly group or family according to technical readiness

  • Blue patch

The first stage is ideal for beginners and for a relaxed ride. Simple and at the same time interesting - there are turns and the opportunity to go off the track and try your hand at chubby snow with the ability to quickly return to the packed place. The second stage is a little steeper, the complexity of the route is proportionally distributed and compared with the first section is a notch

  • Red patch

We need special equipment, preparation of a lot of cool places, a lot of high-speed turns of areas for maneuvering ... In a word, you can’t tell everything to drive this is not a virtual trip

  • Lifts

At the moment, 4 lines of elevators have been built and launched: 3 chairs successively raising from 2,265 m to a height of 3,165 m and an additional side cable car that goes to the top of the second stage 2,340 m. - 2,700 m
