On Saturday, 18 January 2014 the Georgian Ski Federation has successfully organized the third FIS World Snow Day celebration at Gudauri Ski Resort with the strong support from the side of Gudauri Development Agency in charge of the resort.
Notwithstanding the lack of snow in the Caucasus region the World Snow Day attracted about 50 children aged between 4 and 14, their families and the general public (altogether the crowd of about 100 people) to enjoy the day through a variety of fun activities at the children’s surface ski lift, as well as all slopes of the resort.
The objective of the celebration was to promote the snow sports as an integral part of a healthy lifestyle and to encourage the people to spend a day out together with their families skiing and having fun on snowy slopes of Gudauri Ski Resort.
Leisure and entertaining activities for children and adults continued throughout the day until the late afternoon. The World Snow Day celebration program featured a cross ski competition between the Gudauri ski schools. Free of charge access to a 400 meter long surface and conveyor carpet ski lifts as well as snow slides were at the disposal of children and their families.
All participants were given the certificates of participation in the World Snow Day.
These activities have further promoted the Gudauri Ski Resort located only an hour and half drive from Georgia’s capital Tbilisi.
We are looking forward to the celebration of the World Snow Day 2015!
