Snow Report #1
Well. I've been slacking. I don't have any pictures of the good powder days because.. well I'm having to much fun. For the past week there has not been any new snow. Its like spring conditions here. In the morning it is ICY and it softens up in the afternoon. You have about 2 hours of good riding. I Finaly got my camera fixed and my passport is now with the Russian Embassy to get my Visa for this summer. Other then the riding, I have been meeting a lot of good people. Georgia is a pretty popular place for Ukrainians.
Lots of Cha Cha.
Lots. Of. Cha Cha.
Georgian beer. 2.5 liters for 5.50 Lari. About $3.50. And its actually quite good.
The Georgian BBQ is amazing. This night was Beef, Pork and Lamb.
We have good parties too.
Anna. My Georgian friend who can keep up to me on a board. Its quite impressive since she has only been riding for 3 years.. and me for 18.
New Ukrainian Friends.
So. Yesterday the snow was shit in the morning but got soft in the afternoon. We decided to do some back country and drop a very nice powder field down to the main road (Georgian Military Road). We had done the ride the day before so we knew it would be good. My picture don't do justice for the size of this slope but it is a couple KM worth of riding. When you get to the road, you wait for a car or bus to pic you up. This time we got picked up by an old Russian dump truck. So about 7 of us pilled in the back with our boards and skis to ride back to Gudauri. This road is a perfect ADV road and I will make sure to ride it before I leave Georgia.
Backside 180s off windlips! This was taken from a friends GoPro footage.
Waiting for a ride.
That's about it for now.
