Gulmarg wrap-up 2015

Greetings. I hope you scored your share of good powder turns this past northern winter. As with many parts of the northern hemisphere this season, Gulmarg had a less than perfect January, but as soon as February hit, we skied great quality untracked powder nearly every day until we left in early March. Many locals…

Gulmarg Avalanche

With great sadness we report the tragic death of a Gulmarg local in an avalanche incident today. Our thoughts are with the local man’s family and friends, and all those in the Gulmarg community. As yet, we do not know the full details, or if any others were involved but will pass on more information…

Gulmarg Snow Report 2-2-2015

Hi All Sorry, I have been pretty slack with posting reports of late.  We have had morning internet issues and there has not been a great deal of good news to post until now. After a slow start it looks like the season is really kicking off.  We had 46 cm in the village last…

Gulmarg Snow Report 26-01-2015

A dusting last night but the sun is shining again this morning. Yesterday saw the upper gondola open for the first time since the last snow and there were some great turns to be had up there.  Will try to upload a photo or two when the internet speed picks up?? Although the tide is low…

Gulmarg Snow Report 23-01-2015

1 cm in the last 24 hrs, and a total depth at our snow plot in the village of 30 cm (due to the settlement from yesterday). Although it does not sound like much, there has been considerably more blown into the trees (and building a base) while there will be plenty more on the upper mountain.  The patrol…

Gulmarg Snow Report 22-01-2015

41 cm in the village overnight with the odd flurry still coming through.  I expect there would be a similar amount at the mid station snow stake, but considerably more anywhere that was wind loaded.  The upper mountain is obscured at the moment but it must be starting to shape up ok.  I should get…

Cloudy this morning with a bit of wind and some light snow up high.  The wind picked up this afternoon and it has started snowing in the village.  Approximately 5 cm has fallen in the village in the last couple of hours and it is snowing steadily now.  Fingers crossed for decent accumulation overnight.  Stay tuned. Cheers Bill.

Gulmarg Snow Report 20-1-2015

Clear sky and light winds with a bit of cirrus cloud coming through, and there is the look of something brewing over the back of the mountain. No snow on our plot but hopefully this will have changed in a decent way by Thursday morning. We are spending the day doing snow profiles in the alpine region before the new snow arrives….
