Gulmarg Snow Report Feb 7 2019February 7 2019
The season so far.
Significant early snow graced the mountains in November and December to give us the best January base in many years. This has been followed up by consistent moderate to heavy falls since mid-January and the forecast hints that the storms are going to continue for the short term at least.
The Snow Plot.
The Snow Plot at the Highland Park sits at 2,700 metres so the amount of fresh snow recorded in the Gulmarg basin is only an indication of what has fallen on the upper mountain. The higher elevation and exposure to wind can triple the amount that we record in the village. And the base depth recorded at the hotel can also be roughly tripled as you move up the mountain to 4,000 metres.
