Gudauri is closer to Tbilisi, but Bakuriani is better for kids.

So you have to choose.

Supposedly there'll be snow in both destinations.

We had been to Guauri recently.

It is amazing ski place. Though there were less snow when we went but we were told in Nov it will be covered with more snow.

The paragliding was an amazing experience.

We were told that the ski resort will be buzzling with activities 24/7 when it is snow season. As Gudauri is close to Russian border, there is more security on the roads and it is safe to travel as you are being monitored.

Hi,

There will be snow in Gudauri in November but not enough for Winter activities. Skiing season starts in Gudauri and Bakuriani after 10th of December. If you are lucky and if there is enough snow in the mountains of Gudauri, you may slide snow sledges or ride the snow bike. Snow comes early in Gudauri than in Bakurianias, Gudauri is located higher than Bakuriani. Gudauri is located in 100 km from Tbilisi and Bakuriani in 180 km from Tbilisi. You can visit both places in one day from Tbilisi. Gudauri has alpine mountains and covered all by snow in Winter. Bakuriani has evergreen forest with Christmas and Pine trees and covered snow in Winter. Both resorts have snow activities for kids, but Bakuriani is known as Kids resort with lots of variety snow activities, when Gudauri is mostly for professional skiers with steep slopes, but with enough snow in both places. So check weather whether there is snow in November in Gudauri or Bakuriani before your arrival.

Best regards,

George

Hi

There will be not enough snow on both destinations needed for snow activities. If you have a kid with you I would recommend choosing Bakuriani, there is also Borjomi resort close to Bakuriani, where you can spend a day and go back to Bakuriani for overnight.

best,

Is it worth visiting bakuriani even if there’s not enough snow? Is it of interest to kids without snow (mid of November)

Hello!

Both are about the same distance from Tbilisi and can be done either as a day trip or with an overnight stay.

Gudauri is higher and a bit more scenic, while Bakuriani is more children friendly.

Both are absolutely enjoyable!

Best,

George
