Construction has begun on a brand new $52 million ski resort in the Svaneti region of Northwestern Georgia. This resort will be located only 170 miles east of Sochi, Russia where the 2014 Winter Olympics are to be held.
The ski resort will be on the lower slopes of 15,938-foot Mt. Tetnuldi and will be named after the peak. The ski resort will top out at 9,990-feet and have a vertical drop of 2,543-feet.
The resort will start off with 6 chair (quads and 6 packs) all built by Poma. Two lifts have already been installed and the remaining four lifts are to be built in spring 2014.
The ski resort is hoping to open up in late 2014 or early 2015.
This resort will have glacier skiing on the Adish, Naged, and Tsanner glaciers giving it the ability to stay open 7 months per year or more.
This new ski resort, Tetnuldi, will be the 4th ski resort in Georgia after Gudauri, Bakuriani, and Mestia.
One thought on “$52 Million Ski Resort to OPEN in Georgia by 2015”
This would be a wild trip.
