For the first time in Georgia’s history, the Freeride World Tour is taking place at Tetnuldi Resort, Svaneti, the Mountain Trails Agency reported.

The event features 50 riders from 15 countries, including Georgia’s representative, Jaba Shvediani.

The competition, held under the auspices of the International Ski Federation (FIS), is expected to showcase Georgia’s mountain and ski resorts on an international scale, contributing to the development of winter sports and tourism in the region.
