Nestled among the imposing peaks of the Himalayas, Gulmarg, at 2690m, is the highest and the best-equipped ski resort of continental Asia. Thanks to heavy snowfall during the winter season, the powder is abundant and of extraordinary quality. On this trip, I’ll take you off piste to some of the best ski spots in the Himalayas.
Gulmarg, or the “Meadow of Flowers,” is a small resort in the State of Kashmir. For a long time, it was a holiday resort appreciated by both royal Indian families and by British people stationed in India. Then it fell into oblivion because of rebellions and insecurity. However, in recent years there has been a return of peaceful and calm tourism.
I love taking people to Gulmarg because opportunities for off-piste skiing and touring are countless, even in bad weather. This is thanks to the protection of magnificent forests. So I can ensure you great snow quality throughout the trip. The ski resort has ski lifts and a cable car going up to 3950 m, giving us great views and ever better descents. We’ll make descents to the resort or to the adjacent valleys, and then we’ll go back to the hotel by minibus. Each day’s plan will depend on your skiing ability and level of fitness. There are great descents for all levels.
This highly original destination for skiing off-piste is also an introduction to the rich culture of the remote Himalayan valleys. If you want a unique trip in a special place, join me on a ski exploration of Kashmir. For a trip of this scale, the price is very reasonable. Heliskiing is also possible in Gulmarg. Let me know if that’s what you’re looking for.
