What's it like at Malam Jabba resort?

Malam Jabba (314 km from Islamabad and 51 km from Saidu Sharif) is the largest ski resort in Pakistan and owes its existence to a suggestion by the Austrian ambassador, in 1962. The location of Malam Jabba, high in the Hindu Kush, surrounded by the Karakorams, north east of Saidu Sharif, is spectacular. High altitude and 2-3m of winter snow make it fairly snow-sure and besides the skiing there are many hiking options too. The small intermediate ski area of Malam Jabba is serviced by 4 lifts and a single large hotel (the elegant 35 room PTDC hotel).

Haris Mushtaq from Pakistan writes:

A very small resort by international standards. A single 600m long red slope serviced by a 2 seat chairlift. A small learner slope with a drag lift. Not many people ski here so slope is usually empty. Snow is groomed in the season but conditions can be very poor. Season is short, starts sometime between late November to mid December and finishes in late Feb or early March. Resort is popular with non-skiing/snowboarding public and can be very busy. Chairlift must be ridden with skis off and there is a flight of stairs to descend at the top to get at the beginning of slope. Other facilities like food and toilets are few and of poor quality. Parking is nearly non-existent unless if staying in the hotel situated within the resort (which is very expensive). Around $25 for a 3 hour lift pass+equipment hire which in my opinion is expensive for a single slope. Perhaps worth a visit if you are nearby and want to spend a few hours skiing but not worth traveling for.
