Gulmarg, India's best ski destination, offers something for everyone. There are plenty of off-piste powder runs (with the risk that goes with them). 2011 saw the arrival of heli-skiing in Gulmarg. The main Alpine slopes offer great runs of 2 km or so with a stunning altitude drop of over 700m. The slopes have a gondola to the top, and is called Phase 2. For the intermediate skier, there is the Phase 1, a 3km long trail through the wooded hills. This trail is usually cured with snow beaters. For learners, Gulmarg has the "baby slopes": 3 slopes of varying difficulties, equipped with ski lifts and dozens of instructors are available. Equipment is available at many Government run ski shops for around 10$ a day and is generally good quality. www.gulmargsnowsafety.com provides good information resources, avalanche control services, and some rescue services as well.

Visitor Reviews of Gulmarg

Skigulmarg.com from Canada writes:

We have been going to Gulmarg since 2008.

We followed many of the ups and downs of the political climate in the region.

Summer 2019 was once again sad for the people of Kashmir.

The good news is that normalcy is settling. Most landline and postpaid phones are working since Sept 10. Tourists are back since Oct 10.

Since then, we spoke with several friends and partners in Kashmir. They all say the same thing. “Things are calm and normal”, “There are no problems here”, “Tourists are coming”, etc. We were also told that the Western Snow Safety Officer will be in Gulmarg on duty and that the Gulmarg Gondola will be operational. We also have been informed that Kashmir Heliski will be operational.

If you decide to ski Gulmarg in 2020, it can only mean one thing... More snow as there will be only a few on location.

Hope it helps.
