The Prime Minister of Georgia, Giorgi Kvirikashvili, as well as a delegation from the Georgian government, visited South Tyrol in the spring of 2017 at the invitation of the Bolzano-based manufacturer of snowmaking systems. In addition to TechnoAlpin’s headquarters, the delegation also visited the ski resort of Kronplatz.

The success of the visit led to the contract being concluded and on August 17 2018, Aleksandre Onoprishvili, Director of the Mountain Resorts Development Company, signed the contract with TechnoAlpin – the first in Georgia for the company.

The construction phase for the project is due to begin immediately, and Gudauri scheduled to open for business in November this year after its redevelopment.

Christian Jocher, Area Manager for the Caucasus at TechnoAlpin, said: “The short lead time is no problem for TechnoAlpin. As an international company, we know how to deal with such challenges. Nothing should stand in the way of opening on time for the ski season.”
