Could not recommend Vagabond enough! From the beginning they were super responsive and easy to book with via Whatsapp, and I had a fantastic lesson with Sophie. Sophie was an excellent teacher - kind, patient and knowledgable. I really wanted to work on my confidence as a fairly new skiier and she really helped, teaching me with drills and some great memorable techniques. The next day I was able to ski down some new runs by myself (which would have been too scary for me before!) and all of my friends mentioned how much I had improved. If you’re looking for an excellent skiing lesson in Gudauri, don’t hesitate to book. Thanks Sophie!

Amazing ski school, booking a lesson was easy and the staff contacts you straight away with all the details. Before the lesson i was uncomfortable making turns on the snow and an hour later i was linking them together and having a great time. Instructor jay was great, very informative and concise and a great teacher overall. He was also very nice and is a native english speaker so you dont have to worry about a language barrier.

My 2nd time in 2 years to New Gudauri and with Vagabond Adventures. This year we had Dali as our ski instructor and Chris as our snow boarding instructor and as always the Vagabond instructors are outstanding and patient. Overall great instructors. I would highly recommend them if you're looking to get into either snow boarding or skiing. 5 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 all round.

Vagabond is by far the best option in Gudauri for any of your ski improvement or adventure needs. Taylor and the team are professional, have substantial experience, fun and able to help any level of skier. Our group of thirteen used them in a variety of ways. We had six kids under the age of seven split into two groups (two beginner and four intermediate) all of which came out of the week with great improvements in capabilities and confidence. We also had adults taking half day sessions to help critique and improve. And I did one backcountry excursion that took me into untouched snow and incredible scenery. Taylor is extremely safe conducted avalanche testing in key areas as we progressed. Their standards and professionalism is at a global level and likely the best in Georgia. A big thanks to Taylor and the team!

My son George learnt to snowboard with Levi in January 2020, March 2022 and this past week Feb 2023. We cannot rate vagabond adventures highly enough. They are professional, knowledgable and incredibly warm and friendly. Levi is the only person in the world I trust to take my son down the harder slopes. My son loves snowboarding now and we will hopefully return to Gudauri every year!

We went skiing for a few days and needed instructors to brush up on my rusty skills and teach my daughter how to ski. We had a great time with Levi and Eva. Levi was very fun and patient in teaching Layla the joy of skiing and Eva was awesome too. Within a very short time she was able to refresh my knowledge and gave me a lot of confidence. Both instructors are totally empathetic and professional. We can only recommend them. Thanks a million for everything. You guys are great. J & L

We booked four group lessons with Vagabond, and despite the lack of snow, they were great. Levi, our instructor, was very flexible, always looking for the best snow for the group (literally driving the length and breadth of the mountain), adapting lesson times to wait for better conditions and coaching each individual in a different style, according to their needs. I would highly recommend Vagabond to anyone skiing in Georgia.

Honestly this was the best experience we could have asked for. Besides that everything was just so easy and organized, Our instructor Kahti was incredible! He knew exactly how to guide us to get us where we needed to be! He had the best tips and tricks to assist me getting things right on the snowboard as someone with low confidence. thanks to him, I had the best time! Thank you Kahti, Taylor and team! We will definitely be back!

Так как в этом году катальный сезон открылся позже (по понятным всем причинам хе-хе), я все же успела провести крутую каталку с командой Vagabond. Спасибо прекрасным инструкторам, которые поставили меня на сноуборд! Я в полном восторге, прийду еще. Также ребята ставят на лыжи! Рекомендую! 🙂

From the first email Vagabond ski school Have been nothing but amazing. Following through with every request! We had a few different requirements for our group and they were very helpful and flexible with all our requirements. Communication given prior to arrival was second to none. The ski school itself was amazing! Our 2 kids had a blast and the interaction/feedback given by the team was nothing but amazing! The instructors were the best we could have wished for!! Martin, Taylor and Noah were a favorite with my 2! We will be back next year!! Great instructors, who get kids

We spent one week in Gudauri this winter and we got classes for our 8 year old sons and for ourselves (ski and snowboard). Levi was our instructor and he couldn't have been better.....he's an excellent teacher and very good to children too... He's super experienced and very knowledgable of the slopes, the resort and the risks....we felt very safe and made a lot of progress. It's the only sky school with perfect English speaking teachers, which makes a big difference to communicate and they're the most skilled and trained.... Taylor was super responsive in whatsapp and super helpful with everything... Cannot recommend more...
