We highly recommend you to stay at the Abaata Hotel the night before skiing! This will allow us to fly to the mountains earlier, which is important, because in the mountains of Abkhazia the weather may go bad by noon, due to the proximity of the Black Sea. The hotel is very comfortable, there is a park on the territory, a heated pool, a bathhouse, a beach and a restaurant with European and national cuisine.
The average vertical drop on the program for one descent is about 700m. We usually land at an altitude of 2200-2700, takes off at 1300-1800 meters.

By the decision of the guide, a participant may be suspended from skating if the level of his technical or physical fitness does not match the level of the other members of the group – the participant significantly "slows down" the group, creates a danger for himself or other members of the group. In this case, the organizing company does not make any compensation.
