On one of the rare powder days at Mt. Dobson, New Zealand in 2003 we spoke about having our own small ski-area and closing it at powder days to shred for ourselves ...
We believe that the real freeride experience can be found in the freedom away from the masses, that it becomes real in sharing it with friends and that it requires a sense of adventure to be obtained.
Therefore we are planning our own little freeride ski area in snowy Lower Caucasus. Ideally, we want to offer everything from one source: lifts and/or SnowCat, a lodge and all transportation. With a small group of supporters we want to form a community that is developing, co-financing and operating the project.
With Bakhmaro we have found an interesting location, we want to explore in a test mode with a SnowCat in the winter 2016/17. You can support powderproject.ch by purchasing vouchers (vouchers for 1 week freeriding) or you can become a partner to create this project together with us.
We believe that we will pull through our commitment not only unforgettable lines in deep powder. We are also convinced that the project will contribute to the development of the country. We will create jobs and income for families in the remote mountain region. At the same time we will keep our footprint in nature as low as possible.
