Gulmarg, Kashmir Powder Skiing

Gulmarg, the Meadow of Flowers, offer superb powder in Kashmir, India.

It’s been a while since my last update! But skiing has been too good in too many places to allow enough time on the computer. Conditions in Gulmarg were excellent! Two meters of snow fell in early January providing the base, and local storms continued to drop fresh blankets of snow most nights. The skiing was so much fun off the top Gondola when it was open, and down to Tanmarg when the upper gondola was closed. Skiing the “Paper Trees” offered a magical touch to an already enchanting experience. Life in Gulmarg is certainly one of the reasons for coming. I had a blast teaming up with Paolo Tassi, guida alpina di Cortina, and John Falkiner, mayor of Gulmarg, and their Italian Telemarkers.

I took a few photos and created a video of the trip.
