The benefits of taking on Gulmarg backcountry skiing with a guideApril 10 2019
Backcountry skiing is a natural evolution for many adventurous skiers and snowboarders. Bill’s Trips’ backcountry skiing guides for Gulmarg have all the experience, skills and fun-loving attitude to ensure you have the best time possible!
While the unknown is always part of the fun, when it comes to backcountry skiing, we always recommend you have a guide to ensure you have the best experience possible, while staying safe on the mountain. All of our guests are very thankful they had a guide with them at all times during their trip to ensure they could safely ski the best lines.
Explore the unknown
All of the ski guides at Bill’s Trips are experienced professionals with all the local knowledge needed to ensure you get to ski all the best runs on offer, from hidden gems that most people can’t reach to the main bowls that everyone loves.
Tailored guides for differing skills and needs
At Bill’s Trips we tailor all of our guided tours to your desires, skills and fitness levels. All of our tours are conducted with small groups (a maximum of four guests with 2 guides), so you can guarantee that your individual needs will be catered to. Our guides have worked on ski expeditions around the globe, but specialise in the unique Gulmarg landscape.
Learn important skills
Whether you have been backcountry skiing for decades or this is one of your first trips, we ensure you have the skills and safety knowledge you need before heading out onto the slopes. Safety is always our number one priority, and in the unlikely event of an emergency all of our guides have comprehensive first aid knowledge and carry all of the equipment necessary to conduct a rescue of any kind, and also have direct lines of communication to the Gulmarg Avalanche Centre, Gulmarg Ski Patrol, Kashmir Heli Ski and the Gulmarg Tourism Department.
While safety is always a priority when backcountry skiing, we know you’ve come on the trip to tear it up and have fun doing it! Which is why you let our expert team worry about the weather and avalanche mitigation, while we find you some awesome lines to have the time of your life on.
