The Himalayan valley of Gulmarg in Kashmir during the month of February is the dream ski trip for every powder skiing enthusiast. Come along this 6-day program, for a ski touring week you will never forget.

Gulmarg is located at an altitude of 2,690 m (8,825 ft). It is the highest and best equipped ski resort of continental Asia, with a number of well maintained ski lifts and a cable car taking you up to 3,950m (12,959 ft). Surrounding Gulmarg, there is a string of summits of over 8000 m that tower above the horizon.

Thanks to its impressive snowfall during the winter season, Gulmarg’s powder is not only abundant but also exquisitely light and fluffy.

This small tourist resort used to be the summer retreat of choice of the British expats and Indian ruling families. Today, it continues to be very popular for its cool temperatures during the dry season. But most recently, Gulmarg has also developed as a ski resort, on the plateau area on Mt Apharwat which peaks of up to 4,200m (13,770 ft).

The off-piste and ski touring possibilities are vast and varied: wide slopes, ridges, couloirs, forests, runs of impressive length, and elevation differentials of over 1,000 m on slopes, going from average to steep.

This is why Gulmarg is a dream destination for powder hounds! All of this, with the added exotic charm of the remote Himalayan valleys.

About the Guide

 
 

With my name I can’t make you believe that I am mountaineer of origin! I am a breton migrant worker who was stranded in the Pyrénées and later in the Alps…
What I like most of my job is the incredible mountain’s support to weave the real relationships in a short time and often the quality with people whom I guide to these beautiful summits. It is with a great pleasure that I put at your disposal my 25 years of experience in the climbing, mountaineering and skiing playgrounds to guide you in your adventure projects. I am also ski instructor and mountain rescuer. See you soon!
