More Info

India is a huge country, so flying into the correct airport is an important start to your trip. Most backcountry skiing expeditions are located in the country’s north, along the border of China, so arriving at the international airport in New Delhi (DEL) is most convenient.

From there you might transfer to a more regional airport. The most common one for Jammu and Kashmir is the Srinagar airport (SXR). For eastern parts of the Himalayas, you might head to Leh (IXL) or Kalimpong (IXB).

Regardless of where you go in the mountain range, there is so much to see. From the beautiful and massive Himalayan mountains to the diverse architecture of the little towns and unique culture of the local people, you could spend a lifetime exploring and still not see all the Indian Himalayas have to offer.




Good to Know


What’s the weather like?

During the winter, temperatures drop to around freezing in the foothills of the Himalayas and well below farther up into the mountains. While there is limited precipitation at this time of year, there is still generally plenty of snow cover for skiing.

How long should I stay?

This depends on how much time you have and what you would like to do. Most backcountry skiing trips here last for about 10 days to 2 weeks, partly because of how remote much of the terrain is. Overall, two weeks should be plenty of time.
