No kidding. I ride in Vail every other year or so. Fortunately, the inlaws live there, so it doesn't cost us much, but the lift tickets are a killer. I can't imagine what a family of four spends there for a week

Still waiting for the Georgian Snow Bunny RR

Yeah Noah, what the heck are you doing for international relations!? She camera shy?

Been following along, sounds like the pow gods have been very good to you. Flying to SLC on thursday for 3 days UT ski area, hoping for a good storm while there

Bummer about the 10gigs music, keep the tales and picks coming

You should look into storing your music in an online facility, that way you won't loose it for very long, even if someone steals your equip! Also, backup you photos there! You might be able to allow "donations" of music from some of us! I've got a ton of obscure punk and metal, that I love to share and warp people with!

Hey Noah, I've seen that you have travelled right along the border of South Ossetia (on the way to Gudauri), which is de facto independent from Georgia. Did you see any remains from the 2008 war? Any checkpoints with armed guards? How is the safety around that region?

It no worries man. I didn't "loose" the music. I went through and made space. I have all of that backed up at home. I have a 100 Gig Dropbox that I'm backing up my photos in case something happens to my comp. I'm meeting lots of crazy skibum/boarder kids from Russia, Ukraine, and Georgia so I look at this as a chance to pic up some interesting music that I might not otherwise ever hear.

There are Police at every chair lift. this is to keep people from poaching I more then anything. I don't see signs of the war surprisingly. Safety here is not an issue. Just don't get to drunk and get lost in the mountains. And assume every car at night has a drunk driver. As far as the relation between Georgia and Russia? Russians can come to Georgia at will, but Georgians can't go into Russia. I've been told it is very hard for Georgians to go anywhere... or at least to get visas.

My camera has been kaput for about 2 weeks now.. so I need to fix that and get some more photos of the snow and the beautiful creatures that inhabit this environment.

Nice views in Georgia. I would like to ski there.

For very good information about Siberia read Colebach's RRs.

Yeah, I've been slowly catching up on it. They are in Kazakhstan where I am reading. What I don't like about the report is the KTM is giving them so much trouble. I have had nothing but good luck with mine and I don't want their badluck to rub off.

Of course, I carry spare fuel pump, filter, injector, hose, ect. I think I am a bit more prepared to work on the 690 then the guy in that report.

Make sure to read the other RR also..

we were in Mongolia in 2010 and we did a very nice route - a mix of northern and middle routes .. if you want I can send you the garmin files (send me a pm)

also I recommend you to stay a few days in Altai Mountains in Russia and to exit from the main road.

I plan on leaving Georgia the start of May. I will be taking my sweet time across Siberia. I love info (especially now when i have a chance to study it) so please send what you have. Noah.horak (at) gmail.

It seems my 690 (fishfund's old bike) was talked about a lot in the siberski thread. I didn't realize that because I am just now getting the time to get caught up.
