The number of visitors to Gudauri has increased more than three-fold from almost 89,000 visitors during the 2011-2012 season. The resortEe's proximity to the Russian border makes it especially attractive for Russian skiers. Currently Gudauri features 10 ski lifts, with combined tracks of approximately 70km, and visitors can enjoy skiing, snowboarding, paragliding, and heli-skiing. MRDC and the Ministry of Regional Development and Infrastructure are currently working on a 7.5km Kobi-Gudauri ski lift, which will connect Gudauri with Kazbegi. The project is expected to be finished by end-2018 and will be the longest lift in the Caucasus. Other projects include an artificial lake for snowmaking purposes, which would prolong the winter season in Gudauri.
