GULMARG Ski Touring & Back-country
Perched at the very top of India, the beautiful village of Gulmarg sits on the rim of the Kashmir valley in the Pir Panjal range of the mighty Himalaya. With the installation of “The World’s Highest Gondola” in 2005 and a skiable vertical of 2000 metres consisting of vast alpine bowls and awesome tree skiing, it has become one of the world’s must visit destinations for adventurous skiers and boarders.
The gondola rises from the village in two stages to an elevation of 4000 metres. During big storms, the huge pines from the mid station offer great protected tree lines, while the options off the top are endless. Lap the main bowls, hike to the summit and explore the northern slopes or drop off the ridge to remote mountain villages.
The majestic views, amazing powder, unique cultural experience and our tailored Gulmarg backcountry ski tours make this place one of the greatest ski and boarding destinations on earth.
