As a result of the implemented works, we have completely new systems of artificial snowmaking in Bakuriani, improved infrastructure in the form of new cableways and new tracks, as well as artificial reservoirs necessary for the proper functioning of the snowmaking system”, Davitashvili said, adding the upgrades would make the location “one of the most competitive resorts not only in the South Caucasus but internationally".
