I booked a week of coaching with Levi to improve my carving and off-piste technique and the outcome of his lessons exceeded my expectations. I can fully recommend vagabond to any advanced skier/snowboarder/freerider who wants to top up their riding and spend their vacation with fun, passionate professionals.

I had ski lessons with Chiara and Taylor from Vagabond and I loved them so much that I decided to cancel my next holiday to Switzerland and come back to Gudauri instead to ski with the Vagabonds again! Absolutely professional, extremely competent for intermediate and advanced level ski lessons - I am so happy that I found such a high quality service in Georgia!

Had an absolutely brilliant time. The organisation by Taylor and his team was flawless, from the moment we touched down in Georgia to being dropped off at the airport again, and everything in between. The skiing lessons provided by Zane were great fun and I really felt my skiing go to the next level. The price was great and felt like real value. Will hopefully be back next year!

Had a great time skiing with Vagabond. They were extremely professional and prompt throughout my interactions from start to finish. I would especially like to mention Kacka my ski instructor, who was extremely helpful and attentive and has really helped my improve my ski techniques. And besides being an amazing help on the slopes she was extremely warm and friendly and a truly nice person, immediately making me feel comfortable. Would highly recommend both Vagabond and Kacka for all the prospective skiers. Yash

Simply the best ski school in gudauri........my family and I have used vagabond ski school for the last 3 years and they have been faultless - the booking experience, through Taylor Ferguson (the owner) has always been super efficient and personal. The coaching experience for all of my family, with all of his English speaking highly qualified ski coaches, has been amazing every single time. My youngest started with them when she was 4 years old, having never skiied before, whilst I took some more advanced lessons this year so they cater for all levels which is great for us. I fell 100% secure leaving my daughters with their ski coaches for the day which is super important and allows my wife and I to relax and do our own skiing. All in all incredible - Gudauri is a great skiing location - if it wasn't for Taylor and his crew we'd probably try other locations......as long as they are still there we'll keep coming back for more πŸ˜€ - that is how good they are.....
