Gulmarg Snow Report Feb 14 2019February 14 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.
Our Snow Plot at the Highland Park Hotel 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 sometimes 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.
Thursday Feb 14 – Snow Report
24 hours – 6 cm
48 hours – 34 cm
Base Depth – 183 cm
The Weather – It was a mostly clear morning but it has been snowing consistently since 11 am.
The Skiing – The upper mountain was good for a quick lap before the wind picked up and the new snow event came rolling in. The snow in the trees is still really good.
The Forecast – Maybe another 20 to 30 cm of snow this afternoon and evening before clearing tomorrow and staying fine for the weekend.
