The city of Pokhara is located in the Annapurna region of the Himalayan Mountains. Nepal attracts countless mountaineers every year wanting to take on the highest mountain in the world, Everest. The mountains also happen to be a pretty cool place to enjoy some backcountry skiing.
Pokhara sits at around 800m, so in order to reach the snow high in the mountains, you’ll have to go by helicopter. This gives you access to some outstanding powder and you can normally get a good few hours of runs in during the morning. You’ll also be able to enjoy outstanding views of the surrounding mountains as you ski.
The weather in Pokhara is pretty mild year round, this is partly why you need to go high into the mountains to get snow.
