My husband, Sanya and I. At the hotel we were met by Olga. For a week we saw her three times passing by, but it feels like we know each other a hundred years. She warned us that we should not freeriding without a guide, as we'll get lost (especially in poor visibility conditions). And so, free riding is not for me.
Of course, we were not able to ride near by each other all the time. But sitting in lift with strangers, you can get acquainted, chat and share impressions. Despite the fact that in Gudauri there is no crush (free slopes, almost no queue), you can meet interesting people. The Russians, of course, from all cities: Moscow, St. Petersburg, Ryazan, even Novosibirsk. The Ukrainians it is clear (a man uncle with a flag on the helmet). Local - obviously (intelligent Georgians about fifty). The Serbs, the Poles - from the poor countries of Europe. So even come across with the Germans and the Americans, and Asians ( Malays) - they all have fun from only one exchange rate.
It was funny how a man in a snowy cabin with fumes and a bottle of cognac, giving a toast about skiing.
