Georgias Tetnuldi ski resort to host Freeride World Tour for first time in country
02 October, 2023

Georgia’s Tetnuldi ski resort in northwestern Svaneti region will host the Freeride World Tour in 2024 for the first time in the history of the country, alongside Canada, Andorra, Spain, Switzerland and Austria.

The competition, to be held in March 2024, will see 50 outstanding athletes competing in the freeriding, which involves sliding in untracked snow on difficult and mountainous terrain.

The Mountains Trails Agency said that Tetnuldi resort “has become a new discovery” for freeride lovers and noted the World Tour, which covers 300 million spectators around the world, would be important for the development of winter sports and tourism in Georgia.

Deputy Economy Minister Mariam Kvrivishvili said the decision to give Georgia the right to hold the competition was very significant for strengthening the tourism brand of the country. 

Kvrivishvili noted that hosting the World Tour would move Georgia's mountain-ski “tourism products to a new stage, thereby increasing the awareness of our country”. She added it would facilitate the arrival of “even more” international travellers to various resorts in Georgia during the winter season.

We have earned the trust and recognition of international experts, therefore, we will host the Freeride World Tour with dignity, as we did the Bakuriani World Championship. Georgia will once again be marked on the world sports map in a new direction”, the Director of the MTA, Irakli Burchuladze said.

He added it was “a victory” and recognition for Georgia that the country’s ski resorts “have great potential”.
