Resort Master Planning
Ski Area Design
Ecosign was originally commissioned in 2010 to create an “Immediate Action Plan” for the resort in order to improve the existing facilities and create a new, modern slope-side ski village. Following Ecosign’s design work, the “New Gudauri” resort base was constructed and included a new access road, beginner ski lift, tubing park, parking lots and two buildings were constructed along with a new high-speed ten-passenger gondola “Good Aura”. In 2015, Ecosign completed a comprehensive Master Plan for the Gudauri Resort which included further renovation of the existing ski area and an expansion to the northern side of the mountain to Kobi Gudauri via three interconnected gondola systems. These lifts span a distance of 7.5 km and were constructed and opened for the 2018/2019 winter season. During his speech at the opening ceremony of the Kobi lift system, Georgian Prime Minister Mamuka Bakhtadze explained “The number of tourists has increased by 500 percent in Gudari during the last six years. This is a great success…”In addition to the Kobi Gondola and piste system, four separate high-speed six passenger detachable chairlifts have been installed at Guduari since 2016 and the New Gudauri village has also been expanded to include nine large buildings, all in accordance to Ecosign’s Master Plan.
