Catskiing - Snowmobile Touring at Goderdzi

Goderdzi Pass is one of the most alluring locations for catskiing enthusiasts because of its high-quality untracked snow. What catskiiers love most here is going up to the starting point, then sitting on their snowmobiles and catskiing all the way down. If catskiing is your thing, Georgia is a wonderland. Of course, it is crucial to be accompanied by a knowledgeable and licensed guide who is familiar with avalanche zones and who can choose the appropriate routes.
