Chairlifts & Trails
The First lift is triple chair with a length of 1053 meters, it is illuminated during the night rides, and goes up along the 1A beginner's run.
The Second rapid quad lift is 2310 meters in length. The top of this lift services the popular 2A trail, with splits onto 2B and 2C (each about 3.5 kilometres long), all of which drop back to the start of the Second lift. Junctions with 7C and 7D go down to the Gondola lift station. If you are on 2A want the Gondola, keep left and follow the Gondola signs.
The Third (Kudebi) lift is 1063 meters in length. It is triple and will take you to the top of Mount Kudebi (3006,7 meters). From here you can choose between the black 3E trail, which drops down to the bottom of the fourth lift, and the red 3C trail (2 kilometres) that takes you to the Third lift. From here you can also go off-piste and hopefully cut fresh tracks through virgin snow – but as always – take care if you venture off-piste, even seemingly innocuous terrain can hide serious dangers.
The Fourth lift is a triple and is rather short (1104 meters). It serves mainly to connect the top of the Gondola lift with the Fifth (Sadzele) lift. As the name suggests, this 1504 meter lift takes you to the peak of Mount Sadzele (3268 meters), with the most amazing panoramic view in all Gudauri. From the top of Sadzele you have a choice of the 5C red run or a backcountry route through Kobi Pass. And sorry to labour the point, but the backcountry can be a killer, so don't go playing there if you don't understand and respect the risks.
The Gondola lift is 2800 meters long and goes from the Gudauri to the crossroads of the blue runs 4A and 7A and the red 7B trail. Each car can take up to eight people and it is a perfect choice when the weather is cold and windy. Close to the bottom gondola station is a beginner's training slope with a Platter lift (600 meters).
The Gudauri Permanent Snow Park is scheduled to open for the 2013-14 season.
