GoderdziPass
FOUR-SEASON MOUNTAIN RESORT
                  Adjara, Georgia
THE VISION




The masterplan for Goderdzi Pass Mountain Resort
was prepared by the HOK Planning Group, with input
from Arup, King Sturge, Ecosign, Arci, and Geographic
for the Government of Adjara in July 2010.
“Goderdzi Pass will be a welcoming, lively, romantic, and fun
four-season destination, offering the best visitor experience in
the regional market”

•    Profitable and successful for investors & stakeholders,

•    Sustainable and well-integrated within the natural environment

•    Accessible and attractive to people around the world




Pristine forested mountains create a fantastic setting in the winter, summer
and, most dramatically, when the Autumn colours create an intense display.
The Goderdzi Pass Masterplan aims to maximize the numerous opportunities
of the site for a four-season resort, while creating a framework for successful
investment and attractive devlopment.
THE SITE
Goderdzi Pass, located two hours drive from the popular seaside resort town of Batumi in Adjara,
Georgia is ideally situated for the creation of a four-season mountain resort. At an elevation of 2000m,
the mountains are snow-covered from November to April, while the gently rolling topography of the
valley floor offers plentiful development zones. Sitting at around 1700m eleveation, the resort base
is below the treeline, offering an attractive and welcoming character throughout the seasons. The
wilderness setting offers the visitor unique experiences, fresh-air and world-class scenery.

prINCIpLES
In order to maximize the potential of this fantastic site and to protect the natural
environment, the Government of Adjara has commissioned a masterplan for Goderdzi Pass.
This plan is based on development principles learned from the world’s most successful
mountain resorts.




   DiVersity
                                                                              IDE
         Although the mountain infrastructure (ski lifts,
         trails, etc.) will be a necessary major investment
         to get the resort started, skiing is not the only
         ingredient for a successful four-season resort.
         In order to make Goderdzi Pass an attractive
         destination for many different visitors, the
         masterplan identifies a diverse array of
         activities, attractions and functions.
DENSITYIn the most successful resort destinations, an active central
       zone with cafes & restaurants, shops, activities and amenities
       draws people together. This density creates a lively atmosphere,
       even during less-busy periods. While space at Goderdzi Pass
       is seemingly plentiful, development should not be spread out
       loosely accross the land. By creating a medium-density core
       for the resort, with the active centre at its heart, infrastructure
       costs are minimized, ecomomic viability is increased, and the
       overall atmosphere of the destination becomes vibrant and
       attractive.




ENTITY
In order to establish Goderdzi Pass on the mind-map of potential visitors, the
masterplan proposes a unique character for the resort. This character will
reflect Georgian traditions, modern comforts & aesthetics, and above all, a
celebration of the natural setting.

A rEGIONAL
pErSpECTIVE
In addition to the ski area and main resort village, the masterplan for Goderdzi Pass also takes a regional
perspective, identifying strategies to protect the environment, enhance the visitor experience, support
the local residents and economy, and coordinate the efforts of various Government bodies.


RESORT GATEWAY
A marker, sign or gateway feature identifying and celebrating the entrance(s) to the
Goderdzi Pass Region. Can also include directional and informative signage.

A NEW REGIONAL PARK DESIGNATION
To highlight the environmental and recreational significance of the Goderdzi Pass
region and assist in promoting the resort and setting out clear goals for development.

CONTROLLED DEVELOPMENT ZONES
The masterplan sets out the expectations for a quality visitor experience throughout
the Goderdzi Pass Region, and the CDZ’s will ensure that all development are in
support of the masterplan objectives.

AGRICULTURAL AND FORESTRY MANAGEMENT ZONES
An extensive program of tree planting and support for agricultural practices will serve
to protect the environment and enhance the natural setting.

RECREATIONAL TRAIL NETWORK
Trails for family walking, adventurous hiking, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and
mountain biking will extend throughout the forests and mountains.
wINTEr
The opportunties for ski area development at Goderdzi Pass have been thoroughly studied by a team of
International Consultants. The Mountain Concept Plan identifies the best areas for a wide range of skiing
abilities, and proposes an efficient and phased strategy of lifts to serve them.
CAPACITY:   7500+ SKIERS PER DAY
               SIZE: 35km of PISTES

                  INFRASTRUCTURE: 8 LIFTS

                BOTTOM ELEVATION: 1700m




       GODERDZI PASS MOUNTAIN CONCEPT
SprING
As the snow melts, the attractiveness of Goderdzi Pass will extend into the
springtime. Dazzling displays of alpine wildflowers and peaceful hiking
through the forests, or to the nearby Green Lake, will delight visitors. Just
to the east of the main village, a site of over 100ha has been identified for
development of a golf course. Existing mineral springs are already visited by
locals, and these will be further developed and enhanced to create wellness
destination.

The Golf Site
SummEr
Often, when it is raining in Batumi, it is bright
and sunny at Goderdzi Pass.
The existing popularity of Batumi as a regional and international summer
destination will be complemented by the resort at Goderdzi Pass. In the
beginning, tourist facilities at Goderdzi Pass will provide an attractive
day trip for Batumi visitors to explore. As Goderdzi develops further, the
summer time offer will be expanded to include conference facilities, festivals
and a mountain-top lookout & restaurant. A refuge for orphaned or rescued
bears and other native wildlife will provide a unique family attraction and
educational assett.

Extensive hiking and trail networks will provide recreation for families, while
mountain-biking, paragliding and an alpine luge will offer thrills for the more
adventurous.

The animated village core will ensure that there is a clear destination for
summer visitors, and this lively centre filled with shops, restaurants and
cafes, will become an attraction in it’s own right.


• SCENIC MOUNTAIN-TOP LOOKOUT
• A BATUMI DAY-TRIP DESTINATION
• BEAR SANCTUARY AND NATURE CENTRE
AuTumN
Spectacular displays of Autumn forest colours will draw tourists to
Goderdzi, with the resort centre acting as a base for exploration.

Harvest festivals and traditional celebrations will provide additional
incentives for tourists from Batumi and the region.

The masterplan has also identified several features not typically associated
with tourist destinations. These other functions will help to keep the resort
viable year-round, to provide employment for local residents, and to add
additional layers of interest and meaning to the resort, creating awareness
and maximizing the benefits from the seasonal infrastructure:

The Goderdzi Pass Masterplan identifies distinct zones, each offering a different character and
serving a different function. The main village centre will be the active heart of the destination,
anchored by the main ski lifts and several hotels, while passive accomodation zones and private
real-estate for sale will be established at the perimeter (within walking distance to the centre).
An infrastructure strategy to support the proposed development has been prepared by ARUP.
Visitors arriving by coach will be dropped off at the main arrival plaza, or at the perimeter access lobbies
for each hotel. Visitors arriving by car will park in an under-structure parking lot created below the village.
This parking structure will be built in the first phase to flatten out the gently sloping topography of the
village site, meaning an efficient use of site preparation investment, such that construction of multiple
foundations is avoided while hiding unsightly car parking.

"Goderdzi Pass" Ski Resort Development Proposal in Ajara, Georgia

  • 2. THE VISION The masterplan for Goderdzi Pass Mountain Resort was prepared by the HOK Planning Group, with input from Arup, King Sturge, Ecosign, Arci, and Geographic for the Government of Adjara in July 2010.
  • 3. “Goderdzi Pass will be a welcoming, lively, romantic, and fun four-season destination, offering the best visitor experience in the regional market” • Profitable and successful for investors & stakeholders, • Sustainable and well-integrated within the natural environment • Accessible and attractive to people around the world Pristine forested mountains create a fantastic setting in the winter, summer and, most dramatically, when the Autumn colours create an intense display. The Goderdzi Pass Masterplan aims to maximize the numerous opportunities of the site for a four-season resort, while creating a framework for successful investment and attractive devlopment.
  • 4. THE SITE Goderdzi Pass, located two hours drive from the popular seaside resort town of Batumi in Adjara, Georgia is ideally situated for the creation of a four-season mountain resort. At an elevation of 2000m, the mountains are snow-covered from November to April, while the gently rolling topography of the valley floor offers plentiful development zones. Sitting at around 1700m eleveation, the resort base is below the treeline, offering an attractive and welcoming character throughout the seasons. The wilderness setting offers the visitor unique experiences, fresh-air and world-class scenery. Russia Black Sea GEORGIA Batumi ADJARA GODERDZI PASS Tbilisi Turkey Armenia Azerbaijan

  • 8. dEVELOpmENT prINCIpLES In order to maximize the potential of this fantastic site and to protect the natural environment, the Government of Adjara has commissioned a masterplan for Goderdzi Pass. This plan is based on development principles learned from the world’s most successful mountain resorts. DiVersity IDE Although the mountain infrastructure (ski lifts, trails, etc.) will be a necessary major investment to get the resort started, skiing is not the only ingredient for a successful four-season resort. In order to make Goderdzi Pass an attractive destination for many different visitors, the masterplan identifies a diverse array of activities, attractions and functions.
  • 9. DENSITYIn the most successful resort destinations, an active central zone with cafes & restaurants, shops, activities and amenities draws people together. This density creates a lively atmosphere, even during less-busy periods. While space at Goderdzi Pass is seemingly plentiful, development should not be spread out loosely accross the land. By creating a medium-density core for the resort, with the active centre at its heart, infrastructure costs are minimized, ecomomic viability is increased, and the overall atmosphere of the destination becomes vibrant and attractive. ENTITY In order to establish Goderdzi Pass on the mind-map of potential visitors, the masterplan proposes a unique character for the resort. This character will reflect Georgian traditions, modern comforts & aesthetics, and above all, a celebration of the natural setting.
