Ski professionals will plan routes for you to match your physical preparedness and the weather. Ski tours from Kazbegi generally head to Chaukhi Pass, slopes near Juta Village, Kazbegi Mountain, and more.
These routes are unique and technically demanding, requiring advanced skiing skills. Some routes may even involve you climbing to the top using ropes!
Groups heading for Kazbegi Mountain will start in Stepantsminda. This route involves an overnight tour, allowing you an extended opportunity to take in the beautiful landscape.
The Chaukhi Pass route is comparatively more difficult and you’ll have to set up a camp. Because of this, the Chaukhi Pass route is only recommended for spring.
In addition to hiring an experienced guide, it is important to have the right equipment, including, ski touring skis, an avalanche bag, a transmitter, a shovel, a probe, and other necessities.
You should be in good physical shape to take this route. If needed, the local certified specialists can help you to get in the necessary shape.
