In ski resort Gulmarg

Gulmarg is located in kashmir which is to the extreme north west of india.

Originally called ‘Gaurimarg’ by shepherds, its present name was given in the 16th century by Sultan Yusuf Shah, who was inspired by the sight of its grassy slopes emblazoned with wild flowers. Gulmarg was a favourite haunt of Emperor Jehangir who once collected 21 different varieties of flowers from here. Today Gulmarg is not merely a mountain resort of exceptional beauty- it also has the highest green golf course in the world, at an altitude of 2,650 m, and is the country’s premier ski resort in the winter.

The gateway airport for Gulmarg is the Kashmir capital of Srinagar which is a couple of hours drive from Gulmarg. From the airport, tour operators provide transfers or independent travellers can catch a taxi. The journey to Gulmarg is half the enchantment of reaching there– roads bordered by rigid avenues of poplar give over to flat expanses of rice fields interspersed with picturesque villages. Depending on the season, nature’s colours could be the translucent green of spring, summer’s rich emerald, or autumn’s golden hues, when scarlet chillies festoon windows of village homes. After Tangmarg, the climb to Gulmarg begins through fir-covered hillsides. At one point, known simply as View Point, travelers generally stop their vehicles for a few minutes and look out a spectacle of snow-covered mountains, almost within touching distance.

Why Snowboard or Ski Gulmarg?Did I mention stories for the rest of your life without the need for embellishment?! The combination of the terrain, snow, culture, people and the weird and wonderful random acts make Gulmarg Resort a must do at least once while your heart’s still beating. Check out the Gulmarg ski resort soon before anyone else discovers it.

Renting Ski Gear in Gulmarg:

You may not feel like lugging all your ski gear on your long plane ride to Ski Gulmarg or maybe you don't even have your own ski gear. It is possible to rent ski gear from our office (The lion tour and travels)…

Ski Rental Prices:

It all depends on what you need and what you are willing to pay. Renting new rocker fat powder skis costs more than old carving skis.

A ski vacation at Gulmarg Ski Resort is a unique experience -- skiing in the Himalayas is like nothing you have ever skied at a Westernized resort. Gulmarg is an off-piste, backcountry mountain, and much of its terrain is not controlled.
Maybe it's always been your dream to Ski Kashmir. You spent a lot of time planning this trip and traveled far to get here…and now you want to maximize your ski time and have the best possible ski experience in Gulmarg.

Gulmarg Ski Guide – Hire a Guide

There are many guiding companies and independent guides in Gulmarg. Like most things in the world, you get what you pay for.

You can wait and hire a guide on location. You’ll see them sitting and smoking a cigarette at the bottom of the Gondola looking for clients. I would not recommend it.

To me, there are about 25 good guides that I would trust in Gulmarg. They work for different companies - some with locally owned and managed companies, some with foreign managed companies and others for private tour operators.

You can find cheaper guides on location, but be certain they carry the appropriate safety equipment, and they know how to use it. Make sure you understand what you are getting into and what to expect; talk about it with the guide you hire.

We have safe and professional local Ski Guide for you. Just contact us. If you need a Gulmarg Ski Guide, also for Ski Packages, we can help.

Why ski Gulmarg with a local Ski Guide?
The best way to ski or snowboard Gulmarg is with a qualified Gulmarg Powder Guide. Why?

A qualified Gulmarg Powder Guide knows the mountain like the back of their hand. They know how to access the secret spots and find the powder stashes. Don't waste your time trying to find the best lines—a guide will take you straight to the best lines. They know the best runs with the longest vertical, and they know how to avoid those annoying run-outs, which can take hours to escape if you were on your own.

A guide will be able to access your skiing ability and take you to terrain that is the most suitable for your level. Skiing with a guide gives you the best value for your money. Without a guide, you'll be wandering around the mountain aimlessly. You will get more ski time in with a guide –and that means quality ski time.

A Gulmarg guide will give you direct access to the culture – you'll learn more about the culture and get to know the local people that are really just like you…in search of powder and deep, fresh lines.

Gulmarg is an off-piste mountain that is not easy to navigate, and you could get lost easily. That won't happen with a qualified Ski Guide.

A qualified Gulmarg Powder Guide is trained and has knowledge of safe travel techniques in avalanche terrain. They carry state-of-the art safety equipment with them. In case of an accident or avalanche, they are trained and experienced in Search and Rescue techniques.

We highly recommend that you ski with a guide for your safety and enjoyment
