The ski resort Gudauri is rebuilding one of its lifts and is installing six new lifts by renowned companies Doppelmayr and Poma. These lifts will increase the skiers uplift capacity by 3.5 times and help in reducing queues.
As a result of this, the ski area will be expanded with new trails by 20 per cent due to the installation of the new lifts and the reconstruction of the existing one. A second phase of installation of artificial snow making system will be installed in Gudauri. This will be ready for the 2018-19 ski season in a second piste. The first phase was installed for the 2015 ski season.
The Mountain Resorts Development Company, which depends from the Ministry of Economy and Sustainable Development of Georgia, has trained its staff’s qualification in accordance to European standards. We have already reported of this in a post. Employees understood a series of technical training this year.
Following the invitation of the Ministry of Economy, expert-instructors of the Doppelmayr will once again visit Georgia and provide additional inspection of the cableways installed by the Doppelmayr in Hatsvali, Goderdzi, Bakuriani and Gudauri resorts in the nearest future and make the cableways operators in Georgia undergo additional training in safety.
The decision was announced at the meeting of the First Vice Prime Minister of Georgia, the Minister of Economy and Sustainable Development Dimitry Kumsishvili and the representative of the Austrian Doppelmayr, Valery Yashin. Deputy Minister of Economy Genadi Arveladze and the Chair of the Mountain Resorts Development Company, Aleksandre Onoprishvili also attended the meeting.
As it was mentioned at the meeting, every employee operating at the cableways installed by the Doppelmayr is properly trained, but, however, in line with the recent accident in Gudauri, all the employees will undergo additional practical training, which involves practical exercises for developing skills to be used in extreme situations via the special simulator that the Doppelmayr will provide as well. All the employees will receive relevant certificates upon the completion of the training.
