Construction has already begun on a new $52 million ski resort in the Caucasus Mountains of Georgia. The resort will be located on the lower slopes of the 15,938′ Mt. Tetnuldi and will feature six quad and six-pack chairlifts manufactured by Poma.
Tetnuldi ski resort, as it will be known, will be located just 170 miles east of the 2014 Olympic venue of Sochi, Russia and just south of Mt. Elbrus, Europe’s highest mountain.
The total vertical drop of the resort will be 775 meters (2,543 feet) with the highest lift reaching an elevation of 3,045 meters (9,990 feet). With many northwest-facing aspects and good snowfall in the region the operators of Tetnuldi ski resort are expecting to deliver seven months of skiing annually, from November to the end of May.
