Georgia’s mountain tourismHundreds of top officials have now assembled in Georgia’s capital Tbilisi, discussing innovative methods to better place the country’s ski resorts on the international marketplace.

 
In the third Euro-Asian Mountain Resorts Conference, developing Georgia’s winter attractions into four-season mountain resorts is the primary aim. The overall aim is to expand the country’s ski tourism market and ensure its steady, sustainable growth. To quote Georgia’s Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili at the conference, “More than 65 percent of our country’s territory is mountainous. Different research has shown that Georgia’s ski resorts have the potential to generate over $300 million from tourism.

 

Taking into account all these reasons, the Government of Georgia has amassed substantial financial resources and applied them to development of our mountain resorts.”

 
Kvirikashvili talked about recent developments in Georgian mountain areas. Kvirikashvili said, “In addition, the Government has started to design the general development plan for different resorts [such as Bakuriani, Tusheti, Mestia and Bakhmaro]. The idea is to turn all the resorts into four-season destinations.

 

The four-season mountain resort concept will offer tourists different attractions at all times of the year.” Reason for developing Georgia’s mountainous areas is not only for betterment of living conditions for local communities, but also to cater to growing number of international tourists. About 300 delegates from different countries are attending the third Euro-Asian Ski Resorts Conference in Tbilisi.
