What's it like at Gulmarg resort?

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.
