Ha ha, no way. I like the freedom of self-expression when I make my tracks, plus I saw Aspen Extreme and they were practicing for the Powder 8's and Dexter ended up dying, so no, I'm too scared to try that! Way too risky..... I think I did propose some gentle spooning of the tracks but there were a few crashes and that didn't work out either.....Your videos are frustrating. Sweet bluebird powder but you aren't making eights on the previous tracks!
That looks so fun! But the road is scary.
Thanks Jenny! That's greatly appreciated. This trip to Georgia has been really special and there's been so many highlights. I never want these trips to be just about the skiing, the culture is just as important. That day we skinned up to the monastery, even though the skiing down wasn't that great, was one of the most special experiences I have ever had. Thanks for commenting and following the blog!This is all just unbelievably beautiful. And the monastery day - what an experience!
From Wikipedia....Wow, very nice trip in Tiblisi. Thanks for the pics!
Who did the bridge? Kind of think it's Zaha Hadid with a big engineering co.
Good to see you back on Pugski Dave! Thanks for following the blog. Georgia was an awesome experience. The facilities are way better than I thought. It's not far from you so you should definitely go check it out. I'll definitely be in Chile in August. When are you going? Do you want to do something together this year? I might have an option for you with another guy.....Epic trip Matt, loved the photos.
Georgia has been on my wants list for a looong time.
See you in Chile!
Thanks James! Ummm, I didn't go too crazy with the souvenirs, mostly because my wife was with me and she did most of the shopping. I did buy my mum a lovely silk painting of Mestia, that was really nice and a bit better than some of the regular tourist nick-nacs they try to peddle. My wife bought some nice jewelry, a hand-painted plate, a nice Georgian tablecloth and some Svanetian salt. The salt was really good and something different. I will get more of that next year. The wine is also really good as well and that would make a good present.Yeah thanks for the cool reports from far off areas. Really interesting. Never would think of Georgia.
Did tou bring anything back from there that's typically Georgian? Knew someone who went to Tiblisi briefly, think they brought back dates, some sort of nuts/chocolate things.
